Performer: Chumbawamba.
Lyrics: Traditional.
Tune: Traditional.


Through eating too much supper
Before I went to bed,
Strange thoughts came on my slumber,
Strange thoughts came in my head.

This world was topsy-turvy,
And people of renown
Were doing the most peculiar things
As the world turned upside down.

I dreamt all men were equal,
And there were no starving poor.
And nations never did quarrel
Nor never went to war.

I dreamt all men were angels,
And women ne’er wore a frown.
Old maids, they had large families
As the world turned upside down.
