lyrics

There comes a time, when you get that certain call
And the Tarn’s bands work together as one
And we know it’s shameless, but we’ll lend a helping hand
To get our photos in the Chronic Barnicle

Lennon told the globe, that love is all we need
And by singing songs the world can make a change
So we should try to make out that our statement here is bold
But if truth be told, yer dosh is all we need

We are the bands, we are fundraising
So put yer hands in yer chuffin’ pockets - ‘best start giving
There's a no point in hiding
Cos we’re tryin’ to raise some brass
And we’re frum’t Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash

So where do we start, to show the folks we care
To make a change and get publicity
We’ve no medical background, but we’ll do the next best thing
And we’ll go into Studio 24 and sing…

We are the bands, we are fundraising
So put yer hands in yer chuffin’ pockets - ‘best start giving
There's a no point in hiding
Cos we’re tryin’ to raise some brass
And it’s Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash

And we’re singing for a cause that we stand for
Cos when you’ve heard this track, you’ll be screamin’ art for more
But don’t despair, cos at Coldfields you can bet
We all have merch to sell after our sets

We are the bands, we are fundraising
So put yer hands in yer chuffin’ pockets - ‘best start giving
There's a no point in hiding
Cos we’re tryin’ to raise some brass
And it’s Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash

‘We Are The World’ was good the first time
And our remake could be a big mistake, but well intentioned
And we’ll hardly notice,
That we gave our time today
When folk give their hard earned cash for this cliché

We are the bands, we are fundraising
So put yer hands in yer chuffin’ pockets - ‘best start giving
There's a no point in hiding
Cos we’re tryin’ to raise some brass
And it’s Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash
And it’s Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash
And it’s Tarn so we’re not bein’ subtle… giz yer cash
