Swimming With Sharks

The scientists had a meeting
Away from SAGE and Cummings’ aides
We’re logical folk unaccustomed to cheating
But there’s some things we need to say

Did you hear Therese Coffey the other day
“If the advice was wrong, it’s ‘cos the science was wrong”
Colleagues that just isn’t OK
It’s time for us to start being strong

Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks
Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks

Not just her, they’re all the same
Hancock keeps saying he followed the science
Here it comes: The blame game
They’re going to claim innocent compliance

Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks
Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks

So, who here wants to take the blame
For the care home catastrophe?
Because it’s us they’ll happily defame
But it wasn’t you and it wasn’t me

Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks
Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks

We’re up against the spin machine
We’ll need a slogan to survive
One that won’t keep their hands clean
Here’s one we can try:

Scientists advise, politicians decide
Scientists advise, politicians decide
Scientists advise, politicians decide
Scientists advise, politicians decide

Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks
Swimming with sharks
We’re swimming with sharks

(Anyone got the number of a marine biologist?)
