The Lyrics


I work my socks off every day,
And so I have to find a way
To take my mind off things,
And rest a while.

It doesn't take me long to think
That what I need's a drink.
So cool, and nice, especially with ice, yes

A large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the evening goes dow-wown
In the evening goes down.
Yes, a large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the most delightful way.

The work I do is such a grind,
It seems most days I lag behind.
But in the end I always get things done.
And which is why when work is through
I know exactly what to do,
Work goes away, and now it's time to play, for

A large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the evening goes dow-wown
In the evening goes down.
Yes, a large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the most delightful way.

Some people like to watch TV
But I just know that isn't me,
There are plenty other things I like instead.
And though I like a good red wine,
There's a drink that I call mine:
It's fresh (it's fresh),
With ice (with ice),
And just a little slice.


Yes, a large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the evening goes dow-wown,
In the evening goes down.
Yes, a large gin and tonic in the evening goes down,
In the most delightful way.

Looks like Amiright's clique of Mary Poppins haters are up to their vile one-bombing tricks again, Glynn. Hang in there mate. Dont be deterred. We must not allow them to suppress our right to freely do parodies of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"

They're not Mary Poppins haters; they are the same 13 Donald Trump supporters who mark everything I do as ones following my parodies slating their hero!

Its not a clique. There is a way for one person to register large number of votes. Think about it. I've seen 70 thumbs down being registered in less than 100 views, along with zero pro Trump comments You think the vast majority of our readers are hard core Trump supporting deaf mutes? .... And then there's the fact that the vast majority of political parodies are anti-Trump; but then again, aside from myself, Trumpians are all deaf mutes. But then again .. again, maybe not

So, CML, you're suggesting that Trump supporters are conducting voter fraud? I think my irony meter has just exploded

...PS, you don't seriously still think that the election was stolen, do you? Have you found some killer evidence you're still sitting on?

Oh damn .. (stamps foot in abject frustration) ... caught in one of Phil's diabolical irony traps. See what you got me into, Mr Right Wing 13 One Bomb Guy, damn your eyes!! ..... As for evidence, I thought that one in a quadrillion chance of certain numbers occurring at random figure which was included in a brief to the Supreme Court signed off by 19 States Attorneys General qualified as a "killer" item. Seeing as how you apparently don't agree, Phil, I have some concerns as to your amenability to further persuasion .... And even if I do, I shan't spew forth further on Glynne's thread, seeing as how he is, at present, single-handedly keeping our website going

You saying something does not make it evidence, CML: I went looking for anything your multiple attorneys general were willing to stand up in court and aver under potential sanction of perjury, and found nothing to do with voter fraud or impossible numbers. If you won't supply evidence to support your assertion, I can only conclude that's because it doesn't actually exist outside the invention of whichever fantasy news source you have decided to believe.

Well of course, no one has stood up at the Supreme Court of the United States because SCOTUS shrank from its duty and said that the Attorney General from the State of Texas and the several Attorneys General didn't have "standing" to contest the many Constitutional violations that should have invalidated the Pennsylvania election ... and by extension the elections in Georgia, AZ, and Michigan. Now in that brief was a statistical section by a Peter Navarro which contained those figures .... Strange reasoning by SCOTUS, inasmuch as Public interest groups representing non citizen aliens have been granted standing. So, sometimes people who are not parties to the original document (illegal aliens) must be granted standing until its necessary that half the citizens of this country be denied standing. What a consistent principle!! .... BTW, some of these suits before SCOTUS are going to have a hearing soon. And at that time SCOTUS will probably "realize" that Omigod there might have been merit here but its all moot now. We can't undo it now. Think of the chaos it would cause!!

But the case they were trying to present to the Supreme Court didn't have anything to do with voter fraud or impossible numbers. It was a bunch of people trying to nullify the results of another state without even trying to suggest that any fraud had taken place - I'm surprised you don't know your own country's history better: since when would one state telling another how to run its elections *ever* have worked?

Again, CML, you're claiming something that simply isn't true, that didn't happen the way you appear to think it did.
