The Lyrics

Don't know about you out there, but I reckon Michael "Dracula" Howard would make a great Frank N Furter... for those who haven't come across the term, a "plebiscite" is another word for a referendum (a device to allow a government to absolve itself of blame when things go wrong - letting the people rather than their representatives choose). Anyway, Tony "I don't have a reverse gear" Blair has done a fairly fundamental about-turn to say that there will be a referendum on the new European constitution (once they've all finished arguing about what the new consitution is going to contain).
Janet, aka Gordon Brown: Blair, I know you said there'll be no referendum, but I'm old and I'm wet and I'm just plain scared
Brad, aka Tony Blair: I've no reverse gear, there's nothing to worry about
(Up from the crypt comes a Dracula-like figure... it's Dr Frank N Howard himself)
Gordon: Aaarrgghh


(Howard:)
How d'you do, I
See you deny
A referend-e-um
But I'm a little confused, because
In your last speech
I thought you were a *real* PM
Don't be surprised that I want a vote
Don't enter church by the steeple
I'm not much of a man for true democracy
But on this one I say we ask the people

I want a Sweet Plebiscite
To counteract your Euro-mania huh, huh!

No we don't want a meaty
New Euro-treaty
And we don't want to do the ana-lysis
We'll just be typical Tories
And spread Euro scare-stories
To provoke constitutional crisis

(Blair:)
So tell me, what do we do
With a larger EU?
We don't want to be left out and lonely
We won't ignore your grouse
There'll be a vote in the House
Trust me, or my name ain't Tony

(Howard:)
So you got caught saying that?
Well, now you fall flat
Hey Tony, time to panic.
Now we all can see a
New reverse gear
'Cause of Spain's Hispanic mechanic

I want a Sweet Plebiscite
To counteract your Euro-mania huh, huh!

So why don't you head round astern
Do a full U-turn
And when your proposals we've discussed 'em
When we've argued (and lied)
Let the country decide
Hey, Tony, show the people you trust 'em

I want a Sweet Plebiscite
To counteract your Euro-mania huh, huh!

So - it's my turn to gloat
When we see how they vote
For this European Consti... (say it!) ...tution
So f*** Spain and France
This could be our best chance
To get out of the whole Euro-
