C
  We came from the far North 
Cmaj7            C7/9sus4
  Summered in Crimea 
Fmaj7
  Deserted the armed forces 
G#            Bb
  Had to disappear 
C
  Made it to the free West 
Cmaj7            C7/9sus4
  On a chartered flight 
Fmaj7         Dm7
  So we could see what 
F/G             G
  We trained to fight

           C
We were in London
Em             Fmaj7             F/G
  "Let's do it - let's break the law"
G          Em Am
We were in London
Dm              F/G   G
Tell it like it is

C
  Looking for hard work 
Cmaj7            C7/9sus4
  Or credit card fraud 
F
  What do you expect from us?
G#              Bb
  We come from abroad 
C
  To get ourselves a new job 
Cmaj7           C7/9sus4
  On a building-site 
Fmaj7              Dm7
  They work you so hard 
F/G                 G
  But we trained to fight

           C
We were in London
Em             Fmaj7             F/G
  "Let's do it - let's break the law"

Tell it like it is

Tell it like it is
