about

Blue Jacket is referring to the constraints that leaving the EU poses. It’s poking fun at the 'Brexit means Brexit at any cost' ethos. It's humorous, lyrically dark and musically happy. That offset makes for a stark contrast between the disappointment and anger in the words and the optimism in the music.

lyrics

LYRICS

Britain’s sold me a brand new Blue Jacket
The sleeves are too long and the arms wrap round my back
I never noticed the buckles on my brand new blue jacket
I don’t know from who but I’ve got my country back

An Irishman, a Scotsman and a Welshman join me in a bar
We show each other memes on a screen, humour is an art
My blood is half-Scottish, half-Irish, got an English beating heart
My family ain’t from round here but trace us back we probably are
Oh you’re a pure breed? No, you’re an inbred
You’re a joke, you ain’t woke. You’ve always been dead
So, come on zombie, put it on me. I’m all blotchy and now my skin's red
So, I’m gonna go infect everyone, affect everything it’s an outbreak
No lime in my Corona? E.U bureaucrats you’re an outrage!
"Honey, I’m home! What’s for tea darling?" I feel like chlorinated chicken tonight just ain’t got the same ring

Chorus
Britain’s sold me a brand new Blue Jacket
The sleeves are too long and the arms wrap round my back
I never noticed the buckles on my brand new blue jacket
I don’t know from who but I’ve got my country back

You blue passport prick, have you got your country back? And your arsehole kids are gonna spout the same shit as their dad
Yeah, you got past those fibs that were fed to you like broth. You took your share out of the pot now you’ll eat water from the trough.
Starve piggy, oh you look so malnourished
I’ve never wanted to say I told you so any less
I’ll drop you like the pound and depart with a parting kiss
If they ruin us we riot all day I raise your fist

Britain’s sold me a brand new Blue Jacket
The sleeves are too long and the arms wrap round my back
I never noticed the buckles on my brand new blue jacket
I don’t know from who but I’ve got my country back
