The Lyrics

Menzies Campbell (commonly known as "Ming"), the new leader of the Liberal Democrats is 64 years old, and represented Britain in the 200m at the 1964 Olympics (holy cow, that's before I was born...) That's about all I know about him, but luckily it's just enough to pad out into a song...
When I was younger
I used to run
Quickly down the track
Represent my country as an ath-el-ete
I'd compete
Forty years later (hair has all gone)
Can't do that no more
I have got slower
Not such a goer
Now I'm sixty-four

I've got older, true...
Aaah, there are lots of other things
I have found to do:

Now I'm an MP
Here in the House
Lib'ral Democrat
Represent my country in a different way
Voted in each
Election day
Speaking on Defense
Seen on the news
Railin' 'gainst the war
Not getting younger
[But] Arguing stronger
Now I'm sixty-four

Now we need a leader to replace a Charlie Kennedy
That job could be mine...
Do I have that spark?
Ah, will members vote for me,
Simon, Chris or {ahem} Mark?

Fill in a ballot
Vote me your vote
Here's my point of view:
As a leader I will have statesmanlike class
Won't fall down on
My gravit-as
Here is the answer:
Simon got votes...
I got thousands more!
Lucky old bleeder:
Now I'm the leader
Now I'm sixty-four

Thanks, everybody. Forgot to quote my inspiration: my sister came up with the idea for this one, wanting a parody written about the new LibDem leader. And the best of luck to him. Nobody commented on the "falling down on my gravit-as" gag... (given that "gravitas" is generally rated as one of Ming's qualities, I thought it was somehow appropriate)

Whether you are familiar with British politics or not this is still well-done and funny. As I recall Philbo was(is) also the site's preeminent Science and Math parody writer.
