It’s not that bad

To all who work in here
And unemployment fear
It’s not that bad
We all at least get paid
So don’t be too dismayed
It’s not that bad

And new jobs can be found
In numbers that astound
It’s not that bad
So stop your griping moans
About your mortgage loans
It’s not that bad

Sure all the bosses stink
It seems they never think
It’s not that bad
But payday gets here soon
Then we are over Moon
It’s not that bad

To escape misery
Just win the lottery
It’s not that bad
If you’ve ten million quid
Who cares what you once did
It’s not that bad!!!

Oh and Leichtenstein uses the same tune too.
