about

Written in 1980. The lyrics refer to a debate at that time about a town hall building for Rushmoor Borough Council, which saw the band featured on the front page of the Aldershot News.

lyrics

Rates too high, you don’t have to lie
Four million pounds won’t drop from the sky
It’ll come from the ratepayers’ pocket
And there's no way to stop it

Scrap the Town Hall!

You’re not alone, pick up the phone
The council can’t get blood from a stone
If you don’t like their tricks
Phone 22056

Scrap the Town Hall!

The winters are cold, the houses are old
But it’ll get better, or so we’re told
But there’s no need to complain
If you live in Cranmore Lane

Scrap the Town Hall!

People in the Square don’t think it’s fair
But the Tory Councillors just don’t care
There’s plenty of offices in the town
But they claim their reasons are sound

Scrap the Town Hall!
