Seems as if you’ve got elections
Our friends in the United States
And here in Blighty your mates
Send you their commiserations
Different country – same dialogue
All fake smiles - - handshakes and hair
Do any of them really care?
Can you stand another monologue?
Politics is a vast sea of debate
And now the U.S.S. Republican sails
Into the sea is thrown the Presidency
Watch as the feeding frenzy begins
Sharks ripping themselves into pieces
Eager for the chance at the prize
The caucuses have begun and you’re welcome
To the hype and the kissing butts and babes
Speeches massacred or delivered with aplomb
By the media savvy - - super-cool candidates
Yes you have my sympathy but on the other hand
Where else such entertainment in such a grandstand?
