Jerusalem Hymn is a Spitting Image song parodying the old British song Jerusalem.
'''Jerusalem Hymn''' is a Spitting Image song parodying the old British song ''"Jerusalem"''. It was exceptionally controversial, namely for the extremely negative way it depicted Margaret Thatcher and her Conservative Party.
 
==Lyrics==
 
And did those feet in Ancient Times, <br>Walk upon England’s lower class? <br>And did our forefathers of old, <br>Tell them to get up off their arse?
 
   
And did they try and pass the blame, <br>For all of their society’s ills? <br>And now we’re just the same, only worse, <br>We've closed the dark satanic mills.
 
   
''(Ha-ha-ha-ha! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!)''

Bring me Victorian values of old, <br>Bring me inflation that is low. <br>Bring me your cash, <br>Oh! Business fold! <br>But don’t bring me your tales of woe. <br>I shall not turn from my great plan, <br>No matter how insane it seems. <br>Till we have built Jerusalem, <br>And made it look like Milton Keynes![[Category:Songs]]
