The Lyrics

My oh my, I think this must be the first parody I have submitted to AmIRight in about 4 years! Actually seems like longer! Got a lot of catching up to do. I didn't write this specifically for AmIRight, but after I wrote it, I suddenly remembered this site I used to visit regularly, and thought I'd share it with you. I'm sure you can all work out what it's about! :)
Talkin’ ‘Bout A Referendum

Don’t ya know, talkin’ about a referendum sounded, like a whisper.
Don’t ya know, talkin’ about a referendum sounded, like a whisper.

Now they’re, facing welfare cuts and fines,
Crying in the aftermath of Labour deprivation.
Wasting time, in the unemployment lines,
Moving on out, coz they got a spare bedroom.

Don’t ya know, talkin’ about a referendum sounded, like a whisper.
Poor people gonna rise up, get their share,
Scots people gonna choose a Scotland, equal and fair.

Oh they think that we’re too dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
To see the oil’s gonna run run run run run run run run run run run run.

But finally the people are starting to learn, all about UK deception,
And finally the people will now have their turn, voting in a referendum, oh oh oh oh oh.
Gonna vote for Independence oh oh oh oh oh.

While they’re, freezing in their homes at night,
Cutting back on food coz they’ve got no winter fuel payments.
Wasting time, in the unemployment lines,
Can’t afford fees, for further education.

Don’t ya know, Talkin’ about a referendum sounded, like a whisper.

And finally the people are starting to yearn, longing for a better future,
And finally the people are starting to turn, gonna vote to make things better, oh oh oh oh,
Talkin’ ‘bout a referendum, oh oh oh oh,
Voting Yes to Independence oh oh oh oh!

As William Wallace said, "Freedom"! Maybe Scotland can set an example for others suffering under a distant, uncaring government.
