I'm a welfare state wean, we live on the bottom flair
                            D
But we're no allowed to even live there any mair.
    G                                    D
They say we've got too many rooms, in our social rented flat
        A                                                  D
We've an eight by ten foot boxroom where you cannae swing a cat

Noo ma auntie's in a wheelchair, but these Tories dinna care
                                   D
They say they have a deficit, she got to pay her share
G                          D   
60 a month they'll take, then leave her tae her fate
        A                                                          D
Whilst gieing millionaires a tax cut, cause they say they're due a break

Noo that Buckingham Palace looks a pretty roomy gaff
                                      D
And the ludger there gets benefits at rates that make me laugh
  G                                    D
A civil list, plus perks, worth nearly ninety million pounds
         A                                        D
With her other dozen mansions lying empty a' year round

Noo those MPs doon in Westminster must think that we're 'a dense
                                           D
Wi their second home apartments, where the public pays their rent
     G                              D
They even get a food allowance, two hundred quid a week
            A                                                        D
But they're claiming we're the scroungers, is their arse up in their cheeks?

So we've formed a Federation and we're gonna have our say
                                  D
The Bedroom Tax it has to go, and we ain't gonna pay
  G                               D
We're gonna march on London tae demand our civil rights
     A                                 D
Like nae mair Tories and their Liberal shite
