CHUMBAWAMBA “World Turned Upside Down” (1988) lyrics

Through eating too much supper
Before I went to bed
Strange thoughts came o’er my slumber
Strange thoughts came in my head
This world was topsy-turvy
And people of renown
Were doing the most peculiar things
As they 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
