The Dead Flag



Given the recent Election results, perhaps NuLieBore should be singing this at their next Conference?

The voters spoke, as one they said,
The Labour project now is dead,
Twas such a great joy to behold,
As not one Council did they hold,

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

Look 'round, they're in their final days,
Infected with a deep malaise,
No praises are for Gordon sung,
Most people think he should be hung,

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

And as among themselves they fight,
We watch with thinly-veiled delight;
New Labour's lies we disavow,
We must have an Election now.

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

Now Labour's time is clearly past,
And we have hope for change at last;
The votes were cast, the message plain,
We want the Tories back again.

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

The Cabinet are weak and base,
Their minds are fixed on saving face,
They cringe and fawn to Gordon Brown,
Though he's the one who brought them down.

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

We want this Government to fall,
We want them out, Brown, Balls and all;
Their chances of survival grim,
This song shall be their parting hymn.

CHORUS
Let's wave the Labour spin goodbye,
The time of their defeat is nigh,
Our hearts are set, our motives clear,
We'll chuck New Labour on its ear
.

Enjoyed this very much; it seems you and I have been working along spookily similar lines recently...


Ode to Hypocrisy

The People's flag was deepest red,
But now its guiding lights are dead;
Their principles and lofty aims
Demolished by expenses claims.
New Labour came to rule the roost
And give their private funds a boost
And with a supercilious sneer,
To plant their skull and crossbones here.

While we work hard to pay our tax,
These parasites upon our backs
Indulge themselves in luxury
At the expense of you and me.
So now it's time to play it tough
And let them know we've had enough
And when they're gone we'll raise a cheer;
No more New Labour scroungers here.

Very good :-)

Ollie Cromwell said...

Excellent. Do you know anyone who can sing? I would love to post it as my blog anthem. It would be very apt for The Red Rag.

@Ollie

Sadly, I don't know anyone who can sing (and my voice frightens small children and animals)...

But you're very welcome to use the lyrics if you can find a vocalist!

I'm a professional musician and have do a little singing I sound like Tom Waits so not everyone's cup of tea but if I get time I will do a version of it...if that's ok

Dungeekin said...

@T.E.V:

That's more than OK, it would be great.

If you can provide YouTube-esque video or similar, I'd be delighted to post it with appropriate credits.

Cheers

Didn't notice too many people joining in. Maybe the Irish are less than impressed by the New Deal on offer.

Dungeekin, your talents should be employed by Dave and Co in the run-up to the GE.
