The Lyrics

In the recent British parliamentary elections election, there were many undecided voters.
You sit on the fences
On vacillating behinds.
Like Prince Hamlet of Denmark,
You can't make up your minds.
You're the reason campaign funds
On attack ads get spent.
You sit on the fences
You twenty per cent.

Come look at our ads
Agree with our point of view
Wait "til we get elected
Then the joke is on you
Our closets have skeletons
That we're trying to hide,
But don't let that stop you
From choosing our side.

You sit on the fences
On vacillating behinds.
Like Prince Hamlet of Denmark,
You can't make up your minds.
You're the reason campaign funds
On attack ads get spent.
You sit on the fences
You twenty per cent.
8 per cent – too apathetic to vote
3 per cent – too fearful to vote
9 per cent – wanted to write in AmIRight party candidates

This parody would have been better if you had used more undecided figures than Hamlet.
Perhaps John Kerry?
