Parody Song Title:

"To Whom The Mud Sticks"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Another one about the ongoing brouhaha about MPs expenses
No MP's an island,
Empowered by himself
Each represents his constituents
A part of the House
If a clod be elected by a vote
Then claims expenses
As much as any elector would
As much as a businessman eating out
Or a journalist would
Each dodgy claim reflects on me,
For I too vote in elections
Therefore, look not to know
To whom the mud sticks
It sticks to thee.

LOL @ "if a clod be elected by a vote"... although it seems true in this country that every clod has a silver lining! ;)

JB - Groan :-)

FG - the original line is "If a clod be washed away by the sea," and it was the sort of substitution I couldn't resist. Thanks.
