  • Some dirty squatters moved into my street
    With their non sexist haircuts, dirty feet
    Their dogs, cats, political elite
    They may have beds but they don't use sheets
    Furnishing their houses from the contents of skips
    Things that decent people put on rubbish tips
    They look quite harmless sitting out in the sun
    But I wouldn't let my daughter marry one

    Dirty squatters
    Oh my god they're moving in next door
    Dirty squatters
    Is it for people like this that Winston won - the war

    I've lives in this street for nearly fifteen years
    Lived here with my hopes, lived here with my fears
    Paid my taxes, paid my bills
    Watched my money vanished in the council tills
    Alone come these scruffs with their education
    Their grand ideas, talk of corruption
    My rent keeps rising, my job gets boring
    If things gets worse then I'm gonna have to join them

    Dirty squatters
    Oh my god they're moving in next door
    Dirty squatters
    Is it for people like this that Winston won - the war

    Bought myself a lock and late tonight
    Under the cover of darkness if the moons not bright
    Getting out of here, moving in next door
    Don't think I can take much more

    Dirty squatters
    Oh my god they're moving in next door
    Dirty squatters
    Is it for people like this that Winston won
