The Lyrics

Looks like Michael Howard's going to be elected(? ain't no other candidates) as the leader of the Conservative Party. I guess the Tories are hoping that the country at large has forgotten what it was like having him as Home Secretary... but I haven't.
I read my morning paper, and what did I see
A greasy Michael Howard staring back at me
He's got in unopposed- I thought "What the heck?"
Cause I can remember when he was Home Sec

Now he's a
Smug-faced reptilian Europhobic Tory Leader
Right-wing smirking - do the Tories really need a
Straightlaced two-faced most-evasive little bleeder?
Sure seems strange to me

I thought "The Tories have gone for Michael H on a whim
But there's no way the country's gonna vote for HIM
There's just one thing that the whole party has missed
He's got the kind of face you want to hit with your fist

'Cause he's a

But it ain't just his attitude that gets to me
It's his nauseating right-wing philosophy
But I guess that that's the kind of thing the Tories like
There has to be SOME reason that they're going for Mike

'Cause he's a

But they've gotta get someone to replace IDS
Wasn't HE a lightweight and... d'oh! I digress
Some think Howard's great, and some say he's not

They're looking for somewhere to stick in the knife

Into a
..Sure seems strange to me..

Good show, Phil! And can he really be worse than Iron Maggie, John Minor and Michael Vague? Don't answer that... Tony Blair will be Prime Minister for another decade if listening to King George II doesn't drive him to suicide.
