The Meat Industry is Horsing Around with British Consumers! (Verse).
"Hell on Earth" The Horror of the Abbatoir
The Scandal Grows as Hundreds of Food Items Contain Horsemeat!
Eat Your Cheval, Ros-Beefs!
“We’re sorry, we’re sorry, we’re sorry, of course,
There wasn’t much beef but plenty of horse.
It wasn’t our fault, we’re victims you see
That you thought it was lamb, but found more gee-gee.
It’s all over Europe, not just here at home
It’s getting more equine close to the bone
We asked some of our shoppers of meat bought today
“They had fish and chicken: of beef they said “Neigh!”
It’s infected our schools; our kids eating horse
And cantering home with their homework of course.
No wonder the riding schools are missing their steeds
The abattoir’s bought ‘em for Tescos vast needs.
The racehorses are traveling much faster these days
The losers are soon found on Sainsbury’s bays.
Poor old Dobbin no longer pulls ploughs
He’s competing in sauces with Hereford cows.
We’re trying to blame all the mess on the French
Before the judges in Britain have us by the bench
They’ve hated us dearly ever since the great row
When we gave a few thousand a dose of “Mad Cow.”
The shares of the ‘supers sink fast on the ‘Bourse
These bloody “ros-bifs” just won’t swallow our horse
But we’ve got a plan and are now packing boxes
Asda burgers next week will have portions of Foxes!”
