Stimulus Package

A song by John Dengate©John Dengate 2010
Tune: Fiddlers’Green

Oh, I'm tired of the stimulus package,
It's not stimulating at all;
Wayne Swan's so depressing.
I feel like undressing
And dancing in George Street outside the town hall.

There should be a system imposing large fines
For they keep on repeating the same bloody lines –
Five minutes of Gillard requires six beers
And damned Lindsay Tanner just bores me to tears.

Oh, where have the colourful characters gone?
Kevin Rudd stands up and drones on and on –
An hour-long lecture to him’s a brief chat…
But he isn’t John Howard…I’m grateful for that…

Bring back Paul Keating and then let him loose;
What parliament needs is some decent abuse –
Some nasty invective with insults that bite,
Some poisonous speeches with plenty of spite…
