The Lyrics

Fools on The Hill

Bray after bray, they drone on The Hill—
Foolish men and women, voices unremittingly shrill.
So why is it we vote for them?
We can see that they are just fools—
A parliamentary cancer.
All the fools on the hill
Run—they are leaving town
On vacations they've fled.
Again, they've let us down.

Swelled in their heads, which are in a cloud,
A thousand men and women are screaming piercingly loud.
But does anybody hear them?
We can see that they are all fakes.
They figure no one will notice,
So they fool with the bills—
That's why nobody likes them—
You can tell that they will screw you.
Sometimes they get caught stealing
As they drool in the till. . .

So they fool with the bills—

Greatest line of a lot of great lines in this song.
So who'll have their fill? Fine write, John!

You have an amazing knack for staying close to the original lyrics. Let me know when you're ready to sing. Maybe we can do this on a day when Paul Robinson is in town and have a Beatlefest ...John and Paul!

I agree with Rick that you have a wonderful talent for staying close to the lyrics of the OS ...... that's something I aspire to as well --- and you pull it off magnificently. Great job.

Thanks! I like to try to stay close as well incorporate some of the original lyrics within the new context. RIck, I' m taking an extended trip to Alaska a week from today. I'll be in touch when I get about about singing. My singing is even worse than my sax playing, though.

JB - Great job! 5's. Rick - Caught your comment, that would be great fun, I think. If JB & I are "John & Paul" are you, what, "Rick-o", or is that too much of an insult? My timetable is a little in flux now but I've definitely got a hankering to head up that way for a couple days or so, although it looks like JB is going to be up in Alaska for a spell. I'd like to get up there in the next month or so, but I'll be in touch.

"A thousand" of them? Man, I don't want any more than the 535 that we already have. Of course, if you count the lobbyists, spokespersons, press reps, etc., the total gets far higher.
