Parliament in disrepute

SING A SONG OF PARLIAMENT,
POCKETS FULL OF CASH,
FRAUDULENTLY CLAIMING
AND ADDING TO THEIR STASH;
WITH THEIR PLOY DISCOVERED
THEY SAID THEY'LL GIVE IT BACK.
IF YOU OR I HAD DONE THE SAME
WE'D PROMPTLY GET THE SACK.

SING A SONG OF FREEBIES,
SNOUTS ALL IN THE TROUGH.
GIVING BACK THEIR ILL- GOT GAINS
IS JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
SPONGING OFF OUR EARNINGS
WITH A LIKELY TALE,
IF WORKING FOLK HAD DONE
THE SAME
THEY'D SOON END UP IN JAIL.

SING A SONG OF FRAUDSTERS
COUNTING OUT THEIR MONEY.
THEY SMILE AND LOOK QUITE
UNASHAMED,
AS THOUGH THEY THINK ITS FUNNY;
SITTNG IN A SECRET PLACE,
COUNTING OUT THEIR DOSH,
ON PLUGS FOR BATHS AND
CLEANING MOATS,
FOR CRISPS AND ORANGE SQUASH.

SING A SONG OF MP's
WHO TOOK US FOR A RIDE.
IT'S UP TO US ELECTION TIME
THEIR FUTURE TO DECIDE.
IT'S GONE TOO FAR TO BRING BACK TRUST
OF ANYONE IN POWER.
TO MOST OF US THEY'LL ALWAYS BE
A SHIFTY, CROOKED SHOWER.
