Who Knew – the Brexit version

Shamelessly adapted from Pink’s “Who Knew” (if you’re not familiar with the original you can see it on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=NJWIbIe0N90).
You took my vote at that big poll
You said that we’d take back control
Uh huh
That’s right
I took your words and I believed
In everything you said to me
Yeah huh
That’s right
If someone said three years from now, there’d be jobs gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong
I wanted — Brexit, ‘cos it sounded sexy
But it’s not
Who knew
You said that we’d make our own rules
And spend our dosh on health and schools
Oh no
No no
But now we just make do and mend
No offshore funds like all your friends
We’ve lost lots of things
When someone said count your blessings now
For they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong
They had — a clue
Knew about the EU
And business
Who knew
Yeah yeah
So we’ll stay locked in limbo
Until we join again
Until we
Until we join again
And we won’t forgive the leaders
For what’s happened
If someone said three years from now there’d be jobs gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong and
Our Brexit, I’ll cherish
Until we reach the cliff edge
When times they get harder
For leavers and remainers
I thought that
You gave me
350 million reasons
Oh Boris
Who knew
Oh Boris
Oh Boris
Who knew
Oh Boris
You bastard
Yes Boris
Who knew
You knew
You knew…
