lyrics

Backstop! It’s our practical solution
Backstop! For a desperate institution
Backstop! A little national insurance
Backstop! It's not a test of our endurance

And if things go wrong
You know the backstop will be there
Let’s all get along
We’re citizens of everywhere

Backstop! Let's tear up this old agreement
Backstop! It’s such a dubious achievement
Backstop! A problem of our own creation
Backstop! There’ll be no renegotiation

And when things go wrong
Who needs castles in the air?
Can’t we get along?
Let’s make-believe this love affair

Backstop!
Look, we’re not going to be naughty
Backstop!
So do you have to be so haughty?
Backstop! Well, it’s not gonna last forever
Backstop! But if it does,
That might be why it’s called a
Backstop!

Backstop!
We can have our cake and eat it
Backstop!
Why are we having to repeat it?
