Ode To Eurosceptics, Topical Lyric, 18 June 1996

I think this quickie song worked well as a companion piece to sketches about Euroscepticism in NewsRevue back in 1996.  The cast of idiots might have changed, but writing now nearly 20 years later (December 2015) and this subject is pretty high on the Tory agenda and indeed the national agenda with a referendum promised.

Here is a link to the words of “Ode To Joy”, both in German and English.

Click the link here or below to a YouTube of the tune, Ode To Joy, from the last movement of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

♬ ODE TO EUROSCEPTICS (To the Tune of “Ode To Joy”) ♬


ALL: At Westminster in the commons,
Tossed out of the cabinet;
Wasting power with John Major,
Seen our chance of grabbing it.
BLOKES: We’re both Normans,
GIRL 1: Teresa Gorman,
GIRL 2: Bill Cash without his testicles;
ALL: (So) we shall beef all through the summer,
We are Eurosceptical.

ALL: Storm the polls with,
Old Jimmy Goldsmith;
Tell Major where to stick his whips;
(We’ll) bore you shitless ’til next Christmas,
We are Euroscepticists.
