Health and Safety

By on Wednesday 23rd November, 2011

Dont touch me mate
Its not good for my health
And certainly not for your safety
And stop invading my personal space, I think i might suffocate
Get down from that ladder
I dont wanna have to pay compensation
Avoid conversation for mental risk of of humanisation
Keep your arms folded
The person next to you might give you some disease
These laws they bring just alienate us from each other
so please

BREAK OUT, WE’RE NO THUGS
TURN AROUND AND GIVE
YOUR NEIGHBOUR SOME HUGS

If touching children is now classed as abuse
Is my dad a serial molester
You now need a license to drive your best friends’ kids to school
Leave community spirit to fester

We need a hug hug here
And hug hug there
Here a hug, there a hug
Everywhere a hug hug
Bureaucrats have turned this place into a zoo
Where everyone’s out to get you
