I have heard this song only once, but it has stuck with me for a lot of years. It tells the tale of how British workers make excuses for not striving for that extra yard on the basis that it would cost them their job. It comes from the English satirist who wrote "Prawns in the Game."

I can't recall his name but he was deported from Sth Africa for penning anti Apartheid songs, circa early 70's.

Just remembered, it was Jeremy Taylor.
