I see no joy
I see only sorrow
I see no chance of your bright new tomorrow
So stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret

Well how can we live in this all white law
What a short sharp lesson
What a third world war
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret

I see no joy
I see only sorrow
I see no chance of your bright new tomorrow
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
Stand down Margaret, stand down please
Stand down Margaret
