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

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

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

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-
