Song Parody Fragments:

"Streets of London"
Better Lyrics:
Have you the Deaf man who cleans the streets of Bolton
Sweeping up the pavements in his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride, drags his work tools by his side Tories won power, he saw in today’s news
So how can you tell me you need some snow
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the House of Commons
You’ll see corruption to make you change your mind
Original Lyrics:
Have you the old man who walks the streets of London
Kicking up the papers with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride, hands held loosely by his side
Yesterday's papers telling yesterday's news
So how can you tell me you're lonely
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind
