How About a Leave Folk Song?


(To the tune Ilkla Moor Baht 'At)


Tha’s bin an’ voted fer Remain.
What does tha use f’ra brain?
Tha’s bin an’ voted fer Remain.
Thar vote ‘as gone reyt down t’drain!

Cos all us voted Leave,
In UK we believe,
All us ‘oo voted Leave!

Tha wants ter stay in t’ single mart.
Tha knows that’s not too smart.
Tha wants ter stay in t’ single mart.
Tha’s got thy ‘orse afore thy cart!

Cos all us voted Leave,
In UK we believe,
All us ‘oo voted Leave!

Tha wants ter stay in t’ customs pot.
Protectin’ what we’ve got.
Tha wants ter stay in t’ customs pot.
When outside it t’ wide world’s got all t’ lot!

Cos all us voted Leave,
In UK we believe,
All us ‘oo voted Leave!

We that are island born and bred
Can’t lie in port no more ‘n lie in bed.
We that are island born and bred
Must look to t’open sea instead!

Cos all us voted Leave,
In UK we believe,
All us ‘oo voted Leave!
