The Lyrics

If you're an American Republican, you'll probably think this is aimed at Bill Clinton; if you're a Democrat, it'd be George Bush... over here, Tony Blair is a more likely target, though it applies equally to Michael Howard (the current leader of the opposition). Is there any wonder people think what they do of politicians?
He said he'd do this
He said he'd do that
He made lots of promises
Did diddly-squat

Wants to hold on to power
Oh, yes he would try
Excuses wild
But the stakes are high

But now that we all know
He was a lawyer before
Said he'd never been caught out
But we should have known
From the coached-for-TV manner
And the thousand-dollar clothes
He wouldn't recognize the truth
If it hit him on the nose
He's talking crap x8
He's talking crap, crap, crap, crap
Crap, crap, crap
He's talking crap

Now he's talking again
And he's causing confusion
Talking straight is a game
Prefers circumlocution

He's talking fast
And he's talking tough
He could talk for ever
We've had more than enough

But even when it's proved
He told porkies before
Said he would sue for libel
But I should have known
That the two-faced swine was lying
The facts he used were sparse
And if we'd only known the way that he was
Talking through his hat

He's talking crap
He's talking crap
He's talking crap (How do I know?)
He's talking crap (Yeah, yeah)
He's talking crap
He's talking crap
He's talking crap (It's hard to believe, but)
He's talking crap
He's talking crap, crap, crap, crap
Crap, crap, crap
He's talking crap

I should have seen this coming. Your one of those writers who gets a melody in your head and there´s immediately at least 3-4 parody ideas for it... :-)

Good job, it seems to apply to Swedish politicians too, except that the amount of verbal BS in Swedish politics is so huge that even our lawyers stay away from running for office...

LOL! I thought it was about John Howard!

Peter - yes, it didn't take long for the "You don't know jack" byline to transfer itself into something new - it takes quite a lot of self-control not to submit half a dozen different variants on a theme for pretty much every parody ;-)
FBVP - it's written to apply to pretty much any politician, British, American, (hey, even Swedish)... I'd be surprised if Oz politicos are any different.
