Sarah Kennedy cheered us this morning with Noel Coward’s “There are Bad Times Just Around The Corner“:
There are bad times just around the corner
And the outlook’s absolutely vile,
You can take this from us
That when they Atom bomb us
We are NOT going to tighten our belts and smile smile smile,
We are in such a mess
It couldn’t matter less
If a world revolution is just ahead,
We’d better all learn the lyrics of the old ‘Red Flag’
And wait until we drop down dead.
A likely story
Land of Hope and Glory,
Wait until we drop down dead.
Still it could be worse: at least today we know socialism is dead.
