In the song "Waiting for Margret to Go," which is about the death of Margaret Thatcher, the artist says "Grocers and Methodists lay her down low". What is the artist referring to by "grocer"? Is it really someone who works in a grocery store?
It is a reference to her origin, and that her youth was spent working in her family shop:
The second daughter of Alf and Beatie, Margaret Hilda Roberts was born on October 13, 1925, above her father's grocer's shop in the small Lincolnshire market town of Grantham.
