The Lyrics

Being the silly person I am, I've just tweaked a few lyrics to a well known Elvis Costello song which kind of sums up the current election (2015). Just a bit of fun, no offence intended!
"Cameron's Army"

Don't start us voting,
It could take all night
Our minds go sleepwalking
While we're deciding on left or right
Called careers information
Is there any point in a polling station?

[Chorus:]
Cameron's army is here to stay
Five more years on lower pay
And we would rather be anywhere else than (here) in the UK

There was a UKIP Party
They didn't crack a smile
And there's no Labour Party
For the bonnie scots in west Argyll
Only takes one itchy voter
One more cross, one less Vern' Coaker

[Chorus]

Europe is up for grabs
London is full of Arabs
We could be in Palestine
While the party leaders all resign
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne

But there's real danger
For professional careers
And you could be short changed
With just a word in Mr. Cameron's ear
If you're NHS you'll have no work
Why not try your luck in east Falkirk?

Etc . .

[Chorus]

Elvis Costello happens to be my favorite musical artist of all time! Thank you for parodying one of his songs!
