The End of the World - by Nigel The Blackpool Bard

It's all going to stopThe turning of this globeOne day it'll go popAnd we'll all have no homeThe food will all be goneNo oil, gas or fireEngulfed by a dying sunA mass population funeral PyreBut life will prevailOut amongst the starsThe strongest will surviveSafe in the giant spacecraftAll the rich business typesAll the top bankersAll of those with regal birth rightsAll the political wankersWill file on two by twoTo the massive rocket archLaughing at the meek and the foolWho failed to leave their markAnd off they'll shoot up into the distanceNever to return what they soldThose left behind will sing and danceBecause we lied about the end of the world
