Broken Promises.

We've been had.

And why is it so expensive to fly to the Caribbean?
Considering the amount of people who were asked to come over to the UK from the Caribbean to work and all the shit they had to go through...

lyrics

<LYRICS>

You promised me a house
With windows and a garden
You said if i worked hard
I could take a trip to the Caribbean

But i'm living in a box on a box in a box
No windows no garden
And i haven't got a job
So i cut out pictures of the Caribbean

And i know that you're laughing at me

Your money's fool's gold
And I am the fool
Your promises are fool's gold
And I am the fool

You said we'd have more work
You said we'd have more freedom.
You went and bailed the bank man out
So he could help pay my trip to the Caribbean

Well now i got 3 jobs
Yeah i've been working 60 hours
And no, the bank man wouldn't help me
So i've been drinking rum from the Caribbean

And i know that you're laughing at me

Your money's fool's gold
And I am the fool
Your promises are fool's gold
And I am the fool

I think my head is broken
and where are all my friends?
I used to have a dream
about a trip to the Caribbean

I went to see the doctor
He couldn't fix my head
cos he was waiting for the money
that you promised to him

So we ripped up all the pictures
And we're drunk on the rum
Cos there's no way that we're going (we're not going)
On that trip to the Caribbean.

We know that you're laughing at us

Your money's fool's gold
We are the fools
Your promises are fool's gold
We are the fools

</LYRICS>
