The Lyrics

To those who don't know the story: yesterday, Angus Deayton was sacked as presenter of the satirical news quiz "Have I Got News For You" after a couple of weeks at the centre of tabloid allegations of sex and drug-taking.
He would never say what he had done
It don't matter now, because he's gone
Angus Deayton's through
With Have I Got News For You
Ev'ry one knows
What's up his nose

Goodbye, Angus Deayton
Boy, did they have news for you
Though your smile was such a sweet one
Still I'm gonna miss you...

Don't question why he needed to be fired
It's just that's what the BBC desired
As his name turned to mud
The tabloids scented blood
They don't let go
He had to go

Goodbye, Angus Deayton
Boy, did they have news for you
Though your smile was an effete one
Still I'm gonna miss you...

There's no time to lose, I heard him say
You know they had already halved his pay
Because he'd been remiss
Merton took the piss
So much maligned
Ain't life unkind?

Goodbye, Angus Deayton
Boy, did they have news for you
Though your smile was a conceit(ed) one
Still I'm gonna miss you...

The only time I've ever heard of Angus Deaton is from some work he did with Rowan Atkinson. Maybe he's more well-known in England than in the states. Good parody though.
