The Lyrics

It would not be "sustainable" to ignore MPs if they vote for a softer Brexit, Justice Secretary David Gauke has said. On Monday, Parliament held an indicative vote on Brexit alternatives. A customs union with the EU is thought to be the most likely preference. Meanwhile, the prime minister is considering her next move after her withdrawal plan was defeated by MPs for a third time. Mr Gauke said there are "no ideal choices" over the Brexit deadlock.
Westminster upheaval
Bored Parliament clowns
Let's look at our options
Then vote them all down

PM's in her free fall
Her future's in doubt
Post-Menstrual crisis
Three strikes and you're out

You couldn't have known
Just how much
Regret you'd feel now
Still it's kind of fun
Tuning in
Whenever that Bercow's having a cow

This Brexit's not cheap, gal
Can't figure it out
So file an extension
Stock up on sauerkraut

(Instrumental break, Irish bagpipe plays Danny Boy)

Now everyone knows
Russian trolls
Infected results
Just like in the U.
S. of A.
Democracy's barely keeping a pulse!

Westminster upheaval
It's hurting my brain
Let's all take a raincheck
And move to Ukraine
┬ęBob "This Earworm Is Evil" Gomez 2019

Do you like the sounds of the Westminster Chimes on a Wall Clock?
