Look What They've Done To Our Bong

The ring of truth is muzzled
The benchmark has been lost
The peal of London’s finest knell
Is now a standing order cost

Our clarion call of influence
Once cued the world’s attention
A yardstick on the grandest stage
Now London’s bell won’t get a mention

A clang that rang around the world
To prick the ears that truth endears
The Shutdown sound of London town
A one hand clapper without cheers

Old Big Ben's bell is silenced 
They dropped a clanger with our bong 
The sound of news rings out the blues
No more the lines of verity’s song
