Take a second to think about the people in your life

Who have had to use the NHS or else they would have died


In fact without the NHS and all that it provides

How many of you would even be here today alive?


But now with this vir­us the NHS dying

Nurses are dying, doc­tors are dying

There’s doc­tors and nurses in coffins and hearses

And these are our friends and we’re watch­ing them dying


Because they’re all exposed with no pro­tec­tion from the virus

Because the Brit­ish gov­ern­ment has failed to sup­ply them

There’s no masks, aprons, no gloves or visors

We’re not talk­ing high tech, these are basic items


They say they’ve been ordered, they say they’ve been dispatched

So why are there nurses forced to wear bin bags?!

Yes­ter­day 1,000 died it’s nev­er been this bad

We should be pro­tect­ing them, instead they’re wear­ing bin bags


They’re work­ing on the front­line try­ing to do their best

But we’ve sent them into war without a weapon or a vest

How can we pro­tect them if they don’t have protection?

I mean less than 2% have even had a test!


If we don’t test the work­ers then we don’t know who has it

So they’re try­ing to treat us when actu­ally they have it

So we see the vir­us spread, we increase the dam­age

And the day we see our doc­tors die — then it’s time to panic


The Tor­ies try to claim they pro­tect the NHS

But if you’re being hon­est that’s the biggest lie you herd’a

If our doc­tors die because of gov­ern­ment neglect

Then that’s not just a tragedy, it’s indir­ect murder


Now your doctor’s in a coffin and your fam­ily is coughing

And the death rate is going up and I don’t see it dropping

It’s a shock­ing situ­ation but there’s some­thing you can do

Because you used to call your doc­tor, now your doc­tors call­ing you


They’ve put a pub­lic call out — a call for all equipment

And there’s no time to waste, they’ll take whatever we can give them

This needs to be our mis­sion, we can put the great in Britain

Cos if Bor­is won’t, then we’ll have to show them that we’re with them


So for every­body watch­ing now, stop and ask yourself:

Do you have access to items that could help?

Do you own a shop with this equip­ment on the shelf?

Or do you have mater­i­als for them to make themselves?


You’ll find them all in places that you wouldn’t even think

Res­taur­ants, hotels, gar­ages, gyms

If you have equip­ment you can make a massive difference

They’re ready to col­lect it, if you just click the link


It’s not an ulti­mate solu­tion but we don’t have an option

Once again it’s up to all of us to fix the problem

It’s a shock­ing situ­ation, it’s hor­rif­ic but it’s true

You used to call the doc­tor now the doctor’s call­ing you


And anything’s bet­ter than nothing…
