Winsome Duncan delivery style is unique and she is passionate about helping the hardest hit communities and motivating them back into the workforce.  www.mployme.org.

London Town (Holes In My Shoes) is accompanied by Federico Accardo on Guitar. This song is socially charge because it looks at the context of poverty painted on a canvas of hope. It challenges those in power to rethink the way working class and unemployed people are treated. It is time to speak out for the voiceless who are essentially muted in the recession because of their lack of funds. Unless you been sanctioned on your benefits or has a possession order for your home, one can never really understand the devastation felt by individuals across the UK.

Verse one

Mr Prime Minster have you ever had no frills cornflakes?

Mr Prime Minster did you ever run out of toothpaste?

Are you in touch with the working class community?

Because the steep inflation is killing we…..

 

Chorus

London town is where I am from

The pound has gone down

There nowhere to run

London town is where I am from

The pound has gone down

Were under their thumb

 

Verse two

Mr Chancellor could you live on JSA for two weeks?

Mr Chancellor do you shop in Poundland for your meat?

Can you make £20 stretch for one month?

Do you have a clue how many hoops we jump?

 

Chorus

London town is where I am from

The pound has gone down

There nowhere to run

London town is where I am from

The pound has gone down

Were under their thumb

 

Rap

I’d never dreamed I’d live a life of poverty

The debt collectors always wanna bother me

I have to pay my rent and electricity

These bills are my urgent priority

So I don’t face procession of property

But I can’t even get a job to feed my family

Oh no oh no

 

Fade out -:

Oooooooooooo oooooooooo

I got holes in my shoes

Oooooooooooo oooooooooo

The systems sets up to lose

Oooooooooooo oooooooooo

I got holes in my shoes
