The Lyrics

Blimey! Labour -- excuse me, New Labour -- was elected to a third term today. But with a reduced majority. Seems the British are a little smarter than Americans: They inflicted a little punishment on the leader of the free world for going along with the maniac in the Oval Office. (No, Paul Martin, you are NOT the leader of the free world. Not until at least the next British general election -- or January 20, 2009, whichever comes first.)
A one, two, three, four!

Tory MP:
Well since I was 17
you know what I mean
at 10 Downing Street
I've wanted to live there.

But plans, I have had to make others
whoa...
all because of Tony Blair.

George W. Bush:
Well, he turned to me
and I, I could see
that Iraq's the place
I hoped he'd join me there.
He took that chance, in the gutter
whoa....
he's my friend, that Tony Blair.

Tony Blair:
Well, my heart, it sank
when the planes and tanks
got hit with bullets and mi-i-i-i-nes...

Conservative Leader Michael Howard:
Well, a chance lost tonight
and my future isn't bright.
And before too long
like Hague, I'll pull out my hair.
I'd be in charge if I had my druthers
whoa...
but we've still got Tony Blair!
(Tories scream!)

(instrumental break)

BBC Commentator:
Well, the whole U.K.
made their voting play.
It's a partial change of mi-i-i-ind...

Exchequer Chancellor Gordon Brown:
Well it seems, here tonight
that my future's looking bright
and in the next go-round
Number 10, I'll be there.
Three terms, says he won't seek another
whoa...
and I'll succeed Tony Blair.
And I'll succeed Tony Blair.
Yeah, well, I'll succeed Tony Blair.

Maybe the Conservative Daleks borrowed Doctor Who's Tardis.

Let the record show that I posted this before I had ever seen a picture of (now outgoing) Conservative (Tory) Party Leader Michael Howard, and found out he's nearly as bald as former Tory Leader Michael Hague, who came up with a pretty good save: "Grass never grows on a busy street." But even the Blair hair has receded a little, and gone a little gray. Trying to be a friend to a putz like Georgie Bush will do that to you. Just look at a picture of Dick Cheney during the first Bush Administration, and compare it to now, and you'll see what I mean. He's aged a lot more than 15 years.
