The Lyrics

Anthem for 2007.

Howard the coward lay dying
By the hand of his lead bureaucrat
The rest of the country did celebrate
The death of this lowly bog rat

Farewell to the rodent forever
Farewell to his numbskulls as well
Farewell to his well known deceitfulness
I'm sure he'll be welcomed in hell.

Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
Singing tooroolie orroolieay
Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
We're bound for happier days.

Nine years we've been living in purgatory
Not knowing what's next up his sleeve
Some hoping he'll save us from poverty
And soon there will be a reprieve

Tho' most of us knew Howard's trickery
They gave him a chance anyway
He practiced his greed and his callousness
And drove all his people away.

Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
Singing tooroolie orroolieay
Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
We're bound for happier days.

He followed George Bush into pillages
While watching from Kirrabilly
Protected in opulent luxury
on his cinema flat screen tv.

The Tampa we'll always remember
And his promise of no GST
His obsession for places like Villawood
And deporting Australians with ease.

Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
Singing tooroolie orroolieay
Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
We're bound for happier days.

Bin Laden outsmarted the three of em
George Bush, Tony Blair and the rat
A realist who's living a nature way
Unlike pompous aristocrats

The promise of maintaining interest rates
To keep us all out of the rain
reducing pollution, and safety nets
all quickly flushed right down the drain

Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
Singing tooroolie orroolieay
Singing tooroolie ooroolie addity
We're bound for happier days.
