What a glorious country we all live in
Where we take everything with a grin
Where we always complain and give in
Where our taxes and rates they get higher
Where our pensions our politicians did plunder
Where They scratch their heads and then wonder
Why the country is falling asunder.
Where our leaders are totally driven
In volvos and merks – too few women
in dry mansions we see them all live in
To fix the health service they have striven
The sick In hospital on trollies a given
Doctors and nurses are not just magicians
Attempting to cut back on admissions
At work in unsafe cramped conditions.
The homeless rise as rentals have risen
In expensive hotels they now live in
For the Luas the roads they are digging
Is it a plan or are they just hopefully thinking.
I’m joking of course, just acting the goat
Next month they’ll be out there wanting your vote
And for all of our moaning, complaining and groaning
With flood plains and bog lands that their still rezoning
With wage rises and tax breaks they’re always postponing
We look for a party that’s straight up not phoney
Have we the confidence to change it
I think not, If Only.
