The Lyrics

If you were wondering why I made no mention of Silvio Burlusconi - the world's most cringe-inducing leader-of-a-country EVER - in my 'Bad Debt' parody, that's because... I felt a guy that 'special' deserved a parody song of his very own. (For anyone who doesn't know of him, he's now the EX -Italian Prime Minister. What was he like? Well, imagine someone with the diplomacy skills of Dan Quayle and the sex drive of Charlie Sheen, then put him in a body that resembles a cross between Mickey Rourke and Danny DeVito. Voila! You have just made yourself a Silvio Berlusconi!)
And here is said parody! Obviously I'm not condoning a lot of the stuff he did, but it has to be said that half the reason he stayed in power for so long seems to be because a large proportion of the Italian population thought he was A LEGEND for his... shall we say, more tabloid-stylee exploits! Which was why I chose this OS for my parody 'tribute' to him.

So Berl’s quit, he admits he’s wrong
The nation says “What the devil took him so long?”
Just add up all the crazy things that he’s done
A world of scandalous fun
Oh Berl’ knows how to have fun

Avoids jail, never paying for a crime
He changed the laws so he’d never have to do time
They say the mafia loves him like a son
And yet he’s never been done
No, Berl’s still getting some…

Tax fraud and corrup-tion…
Surg-eons….
Bunga-bunga’s by the ton
That’s Berl’ just having some fun
Oh Berl’ knows how to have fun

(Berl-usconi’s…. having big fun, Berl’s… having some…)

Hot chicks, whores and underage girls
He funds their careers, buys them diamonds and pearls
Got lots of money but his country has none
‘Cause Berl’s just spent it on fun
Yeah Berl’s nine mill-i-on….

And now he’s really gone….
It’s job done…
Tendered his res-ig-na-tion
I bet he’s still having fun
Oh Berl’ knows how to have fun….

(Berl-usconi’s…. finally gone, Berl’s… come and gone…)

He’s still got his nine mill-i-on….
He’s worked hard on his love album
Oh Berl’…. Berl’s still having some fun….
(You just know it, he’s having fun)
No more sexist and dirty puns
Or upsetting for-eign na-tions
Oh Berl,’ Berl’ made politics fun

Bunga-bunga, bunga-bunga everyone
Oh fun for him but not for some
Now Berl’, it’s just you having fun…
Arrivaderci!

*please just repeat the last two verses for eternity... seriously, I was going to do them, but they go on forever and I was starting to lose the will to live... thank you kindly*
Interestingly and somewhat spookily, the security code I had to type in to submit this parody was KGB. Should I be worried...?

Berle did know how to have fun: Steal everyone else's jokes. Oh, you weren't talking about Uncle Miltie, a.k.a. the Thief of Bad Gags?
