This ole mosque is gettin' shaky
This ole mosque is gettin' old
This ole mosque is getting smelly
It's getting full of sickly mould

Aint gonna need this mosque no longer
Aint gonna need this mosque no more
Aint got time to ring the council
Aint got time to pester the DHSS
Aint got time to scrape off the bacon
Off the walls and window panes
Aint gonna need this mosque no longer
We'll demand a new one when Labour get in again
