Flux Of Pink Indians - Charity Hilarity Lyrics

You put a few coppers into the slot
Pretending that it's all that you've got
Hungry conscience
Charity, hilarity
Starving millions
Prevention, cure
A few pence shed and both are fed
A few pence shed and both are fed
The money we donate to charity
Is too small to be of real consequence
But large enough to ease our conscience
The oxtam ad makes you feel bad
You put a few coppers into the slot
Pretending that it's all that you've got
Hungry conscience
Charity, hilarity
Starving millions
Prevention, cure
A few pence shed and both are fed
A few pence shed and both are fed
Disease, poverty and famine need not to exist
Because we let them, they continue to persist
There is enough for all of our need
But not for all of our greed
The oxtam ad makes you feel bad
You put a few coppers into the slot
Pretending that it's all that you've got
Hungry conscience
Charity, hilarity
Starving millions
Prevention, cure
A few pence shed and both are fed
A few pence shed and both are fed
