about

We're taught to want, to need, to yearn and desire. The Englishman and his castle - the ultimate dream of better times.

lyrics

Baby screams and Mummy dreams,
Of a life that’s a little brighter.
Sister shouts and Daddy doubts,
If he can pull his belt any tighter.
Pull his belt any tighter.

On the street in donkey jacket,
Search the lining for a (last wage) packet.
Found a pound you jump around,
Could it be you’ve hit better times.
Could it be you’ve hit better times.

Chorus
Still they say...
An Englishman's home is his castle,
An Englishman's home is his castle.
Is it true?
An Englishman's home is his castle,
An Englishman's home is his castle.

In bed at night with your robust wife,
She screams and shouts about life.
Argue, argue ‘til you fall asleep,
Dreaming of better times.
Dreaming of better times.

Chorus
Break
Chorus

Search for work, day in day out.
For a little bit of extra money.
Buy chips for tea, for 90p.
You’re dreaming of milk and honey.
Dreaming of milk and honey.

Chorus.
