Lyrics

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the
rules
All the seats are taken in 'The parliament of fools'
The discontented winter howeld, when I first came up to vote
They swept in on a sea of change, but I’m glad I missed
their boat
As communities were taxed and torn, utilities got
floated
And for eighteen years the 'true blue' cause
prevailed and was promoted
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How I took me off a college for to learn philosophy
Studied Paine and Machiavellin spin and sophistry
But coming from a county that was redin tooth and claw
For a one-horse-race some lobby-fodder-donkey
was brought forth
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
All the seats are taken in the house that makes the
rules
All the seats are taken in 'The parliament of fools'
Armed ith this liberal knowledge, I set off to London
town
To see 'the seat of wisdom' and hear justice handed
down
Not 'a semblance of normality', an assembly of insanity
I’ll not become a member of of this parliament most
foul
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
Yes, all the seats are taken and our confidence is shaken
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
