You Are My Benefit...

With huge thanks to Hossylass for the lyrics and sincere apologies for the singing, here's the first of the protest songs people might like to sing at The Hardest Hit March on wednesday...

"You Are My income
My only income.
You pay my heating
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, Dave,
How much I need it.
Please don't take my benefit away

The other night, Dave,
As I lay sleeping
I dreamt that I was fit and well.
When I awoke, Dave,
I was mistaken
And I was living a version of hell.

You are my benefit,
My only benefit.
You give me freedom
To go outside.
You'll never know, Dave,
How much I need that
Please don't take my freedom away.

I'll always need help
To eat and get washed
If my benefits the same would stay
But if you force me
To claim another
You'll regret it all some day;

You are my lifeline,
My only lifeline.
It puts my clothes on
When skies are grey
You'll never know, Dave,
How much I need that.
Please don't take my lifeline away.

You told the world, Dave
> You would protect me
> And nothing else could come between
> But now you've left me
> To die alone Dave
> You have shattered all of my dreams;

I need my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me unhappy
Make my skies grey.
You know we  know, Dave,
How much you lied Dave.
Please don't take my sunshine away"
