A* = A/E = 2400
D* = A/D = 2250
Dm = A/D/F = 2210
G  = B/D/G = 0232
[numbers indicate fingerings on a standard GCEA-tuned ukulele]

A*                                                D*
Every second of every minute, every hour of every day
                                                         A*
The babblers work at building Babel; listen to what they say
                                                                   Dm
Reading the news and feeding their views to the minds of a captive nation
                                          G     A* 
Blending fact and fantasy: the official interpretation


A*                                                 D*
Every night in a billion rooms a billion minds are fed
                                                  A*
On a diet of pre-digested pap prepared by talking heads
                                                          Dm
Opinion-makers, phonies and fakers, talking to earn their pay
                                                  G      A*
Gazing out of their plastic world and talking our lives away


A*                                                  D*
Every time that a working man or woman demand their rights
                                                          A*
The talking machine works overtime to prove that black is white
                                                        Dm
Strikers are traitors, paid agitators; miners are surly brutes
                                                       G          A*
But don't let the viewers see the coppers teaching 'em with their boots


A*                                                 D*
Every day the smooth-faced pundits forecast on the box
                                                          A*
The miners' strike was lost they said and Scargill on the rocks
                                                       Dm
Lies, defamation, misinformation, that was the testing time
                                                           G     A*
He kept faith with the men who elected him - and that is a major crime


A*                                                    D*
Every time there's a striking Pole, the lads at the BBC
                                                              A*
And the Thatcher mob weep crocodile tears: "Hurrah for Democracy"
                                                           Dm
The Sun and the Mail both joyfully hail the Poles' solidarity
                                                 G         A*
Let British workers go on strike, they sing in a different key


Dm                                            G       A*
For solidarity's good for Poles - but not for you and me
