Oh Danny Boy!
The jags and jags are calling.
From No.10 and from the Treasury.
The passion’s gone and ESA forgotten.
T’was you t’was you, but now you’ve turned away.
So come ye back! Remember how we need you
Disabled, sick and vulnerable in need.
We’re all still here, forgotten in the shadows.
Oh Danny Boy! Oh Danny Boy, we need you so.
And if one day, you think again of ESA
And I am dead, as dead I may well be
Will you recall, the times you said you’d help us?
Or hide away? Pretend you cannot see?
We have no friends, no politicians caring
No-one to save our fragile dignity.
Will you come back and fight for what your heart knows?
Your time has come to be the man you ought to be.
