Lily Allen, Our Hero(ine)

Lily Allen is brilliant and political, with the freshly-leaked GWB (Guess Who Batman) a.k.a. Fuck You Very Much, a plinky Carpenter-esque mashup with a message to the hateful and narrow-minded BNP – a British far-right, gay-hating, white supremacist political party. I didn’t need any more reasons to love this girl, after what I’ve heard of her, but I may as well add two more. She’s got more balls than a snooker table and her heart in the right place. If she’s not at the top of the list for every major metropolitan Pride, then some queens are not paying attention. Check her out.

The lyrics follow:

“Look inside.
Look inside your tiny mind
and then look a bit harder,
because we’re so unispired,
so sick and tired,
of all the hatred you harbor.

So you say,
it’s not okay to be gay,
well I think you’re just evil,
you’re just some racist
who can’t tie my laces,
your point of view is medieval.

Fuck you.
Fuck you very, very much.
Cause we hate what you do,
and we hate your whole crew,
so please don’t stay in touch.

Fuck you.
Fuck you very, very much.
Cause your words don’t translate,
and it’s getting kinda late,
so please don’t stay in touch.

Do you get, do you get
a little kick out of being small-minded
You want to be like your father.
His approval you’re after.
Well, that’s not how you’ll find it.

Do you?  Do you really enjoy
Living a life that’s so hateful?
‘Cause there’s a hole
where your soul should be
You’re losing control of it,
And it’s really distasteful.

Fuck you.
Fuck you very, very much.
Cause we hate what you do,
and we hate your whole crew,
so please don’t stay in touch.

Fuck you.
Fuck you very, very much.
Cause your words don’t translate,
and it’s getting kinda late,
so please don’t stay in touch.”

I love you, Lilly. I love you very, very much.

    Wow – what a blast. This song has made me smile and I needed it. I want to live with people who think like Lily. Maybe we could all chip in and buy an island somewhere !
