I want a floating duck house
I want to clear my moat
I need to mend my tennis court
That's why I need your vote

I have to build a portico
My swimming pool needs mending
My lovely plants need horse manure
And the Aga needs much tending

A chandelier is vital
Mock Tudor boards are great
My hanging baskets won awards
And I've earned a tax rebate

I need a glitter toilet seat
My piano so needs tuning
Maltesers help me stay awake
And my orchard must need pruning

I could have said the rules were wrong
And often thought I should
But somehow it was easier
To profit all I could



The public really have to see
That the rules are there to test
And by defrauding taxpayers
We were just doing our best

The Speaker of the House has gone
Our sacrificial beast
But the public are still braying
For our corpses at the feast

What do the public want from us?
Those vote wielding ingrates?
They really should be grateful
To be financing our estates

The message is so very clear
(We're merely learning late)
That the British way of living well
Is to screw the bloody state!
