Roll up, roll up

Buy your villa here.

Trust them, trust them

See them rub their hands.

Winking, winking

At the builder man.

Only 40 miles to go

Waiting for a call.



Memoranda, memoranda

Only 250%, lowest rate around.

Cor as low as that

Give me 20k says the builder man.

Ok say the bankee manager

But I suppose we wonít see you around.

Maybe we can do this again some time

When we have got the pensioners out.



Electric, electric who controls that

We do, we do says the bankee manager.

But it is so cold we could die

You should have thought about this

Before you came to Paradise.

We worked hard to retire here

Well we donít work says the bankee manager.



Donít work, nothing works here

Give us your money and shut your gob

We are a bank we are esteemed

Held in high regard, ask anyone.

Especially in the Government

Ask the legal boys

They will know cos they work for us

And they work for you.



Builder man has the same advocate

Nothing wrong with that.

Give us y

I didn't post it all



Builder man has the same advocate

Nothing wrong with that

Give us your money

Shut your gob.

If you donít we will issue a writ

And if no one is looking

We will break your lock.

We will isolate you.



To ensure you silence

We have tricks up our sleeves.

Intimidation and harassment

Writs by the barrow full.

Free speech in the Press

We can sort that.

We are esteemed

Pillars of our society.



Constitution, whatís that

Tis only a piece of paper.

Used as a banksí doormat

Give us your money.

Shut your gob

Come back builder man.

We got them out

Letís do it again



Roll up, Roll up

Buy your villa here.

Trust us Trust us

Hands behind their back.

Sneering, leering

Builder man is back.

Back for more bunce

He has done it more than once.

If that 'poem' was included on the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office website, people might take more notice!

Yes tena they might, problem is people still believe it wont happen to them, they have done their homework and the Estate Agent who is so nice have introduced them to their husband/wife/sister/brother/relative/friend who just happens to be an Advocate and they too are so nice and couldn't possibly be dishonest and so the Estate Agent pockets an other £250 to go with the 5/6% commission for selling the property. So it goes on and on and on.
