The Lyrics

Sung by Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's chief rottweiler and spin doctor
Now I'm the king of the spinners
Oh, in Government PR
I never fail to spin my tale
Of things just how they are
I wanna be a MP, Tony
And vote here in the House
And be just like all your MPs
I'm tired of being a louse

Oh, oobee doo
I wanna be like you
I wanna work like you
Get perks like you, too
Though now it's true
No-one likes me
You can get me elected too

Now don't try to kid me, Tony
I made a deal with you
What I need's a nice safe seat
To make my dream come true
So pull a few strings, Tony
You know what to do
Use your power within the hour
So I can be like you

You!
I wanna be like you
I wanna work like you
Get perks like you, too
Though now it's true
No-one likes me
You can get me elected too
Vote me in, brother
You can get me elected too
One more time
You can get me elected too

Prescient, or what? Alastair Campbell is considering running for parliament only two and a bit years after I wrote this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3632314.stm
