The World Turned Upside Down [1]

Through eating too much supper before I went to bed
Strange thoughts came on my slumber, strange thoughts came in my head
This world seemed topsy-turvey and people of reknown
Were doing the most peculiar things as the world turned upside down
I dreamt there was no work house and there were no starving poor
And nations never did quarrel, nor never went to war
I thought all men were angels and women ne'er wore a frown
Old maids they had large families as the world turned upside down

English Rebel Songs 1381 - 1984 Chumbawamba
