The Lyrics

It seems to be that in every corner of the world, sexual abuse of children has become a pressing issue. One of those caught up in such a scandal is Australian Governor-General Peter Hollingworth, who has been accused of covering up for such cases in his previous job. We think he should be forced out of his current government housing into another kind - namely, prison.
Put me in prison... (Put me in prison... Put me in prison...)

(Instrumental intro)

It's not so easy making fools
Out of, out of all you
I left you wond'ring and confused
I lied, I lied to you
Never had the truth in my heart
I'm lying, lying to you
Was it a lie right from the start
Yes sir, yes-sir-ree-do...

Well now my mind is weak - so just put me in prison
I can't tell the truth - so just put me in prison
And I'm a piece of scum - so just put me in prison
Put me in prison
Put me in prison

I am sorry now with how I dealt
Those cases, of child abuse
So long ago, thought you'd forget
It's a lousy excuse

I covered up for priests - so just put me in prison
Those who abused kids - so just put me in prison
Got caught with their pants down - so just put me in prison
Put me in prison
Put me in prison...

(Violin solo)

So what's PM Howard to do
Save me, save me from you
The queen might call from out of the blue
My rep, now it ain't you

I covered up for priests - so just put me in prison
Those who abused kids - so just put me in prison
Got caught with their pants down - so just put me in prison
And you've had enough - so just put me in prison
Now my mind is weak - so just put me in prison
I can't tell the truth - so just put me in prison
I'm a piece of scum - so just put me in prison

Put me in prison
Put me in prison
Put me in prison
Put me in prison
Put me in prison
What did I do wrong...
