We're Wets is a Spitting Image song parodying the Tory left-wingers (wets).
 
=== Lyrics ===
 
'''(Backing singers)'''
 
 
<nowiki> </nowiki>Can you guess who they are?
 
 
We bet you haven't guessed so far
 
 
'''(Pym)'''
 
 
Shall we tell them?
 
 
'''(Pym and Prior)'''
 
 
Let's![[File:Spitting Image - We're Wets|thumb|right|335 px|Spitting Image - We're Wets]]We're wets, wets, wets
 
 
'''(Backing singers)'''
 
 
Swimming around underwater
 
 
Trying to avoid the grocer's daughter
 
 
Once in a while letting off a bit of back
 
 
'''(Pym and Prior)'''
 
 
And always getting our bottoms smacked
 
 
'''(Backing singers)'''
 
 
No matter how bad things get
 
 
'''(All)'''
 
 
We're wet, wet, wet
 
 
'''(Pym)'''
 
 
Me, I'm a wet and my name is Pym
 
 
'''(Prior)'''
 
 
Me, I'm a wet
 
 
'''(Pym)'''
 
 
But you won't have heard of him
 
 
'''(Pym and Prior)'''
 
 
Don't dare come out
 
 
And speak what we oughta
 
 
Just blow bubbles
 
 
Underwater
 
 
No matter how bloody awful things get
 
 
Because we're wet, wet, wet
 
 
Once in a while
 
 
We stick up our hand
 
 
Point out that things are not going as planned
 
 
But we never risk our neck
 
 
We're only fishy fellows and we're scared as heck
 
 
'''(All)'''
 
 
We're just drifting around under water
 
 
Trying to avoid the grocer's daughter
 
 
We used to be in the leader's pack
 
 
Now we flip v-signs behind her back
 
 
Doing sod-all as the sun of England sets
 
 
Cos we're wet, wet, wets
 
 
We're wet, wet, wets
 
 
=== Trivia ===
 
* The boat pushed By Denis Thatcher is named HMS Conqueror, a reference to the nuclear submarine of the same name which sank the General Belgrano during the Falklands War
