Shimbo Darktree Lyr Add: My Name is Tony Abbott (1) Lyr Add: My Name is Tony Abbott 03 Jun 14


I have heard the call (well ... cries of lamentation,actually) and so will inflict this on my fellow OzCatters.

MY NAME IS TONY ABBOTT
(lyrics: Ian Clarke tune: My Name was Davy Lowston (I did seal))

My name is Tony Abbott, I do lie, I do lie,
My name is Tony Abbott, I do lie
My name is Tony Abbott, with me lying is a habit,
I do lie, I do lie, I do lie.

I promised no more taxes, but I lied, but I lied,
I promised no more taxes, but I lied,
I promised no more tax, but it doesn't fit the facts,
I did lie, I did lie, I did lie.

I said I won't mess with health, but I lied, but I lied,
I said I won't mess with health, but I lied,
I said I won't mess with health and redistribute all the wealth,
But I lied, but I lied, but I lied.

I said no cuts to education, but I lied, but I lied,
I said no cuts to education, but I lied,
I said no further cost to learn, but for fighter planes I yearn,
So I lied, so I lied, so I lied.

** repeat first verse … or add some. There must be boundless possibility! **

Last verse, suggested by Anne Infante (in hope):
 Take warning from my story, I did lie, I did lie
I did not end in glory, I did lie
For the voters threw me out
So take heed in case you doubt
Never lie, never lie, never lie
