IN CONVERSATION WITH… Tony Abbott’s Mum
Current Music: Just inside my head….
Current Mood: busy
This is the song I performed the day after Mother’s Day.
It’s the first time I’ve ever seen Barr nervous while I was playing…
Maybe abortion isn’t the best singing topic before 7.00am on a Monday morning…
Are you crazy for RU486?
Its a little pill that solves some problems
That arise from sex
Health regulators said its OK
But the Government wanted another way,
Who should get the power of veto…
Wait a second… I think I know!
There’s a lady, who just might get it right
You’ll say I’m crazy but with hindsight you’ll see
That I’ve seen the light…
If she knew then what she knew now
And had that power, I must wonder how…
Mrs Abbot, would you have bothered
If you’d know you’d be Tony’s mother?
Sometimes motherhood ain’t all its supposed to be
You could end up with a Johhny, or a little right wing Tony,
Life’s not fair… I think there’s half a chance she’d spare us
‘Cos you and I, we’re sinners all
But even we don’t deserve to be…
The parents of young Liberals
Tony Abbot, if you’re so sure that you’re right
Give your mum the power of veto, the pill, a time machine
and say goodnight…
And as you retroactively
Buy the farm
I’ll be propagating with a girl I met
While reading the Qu’ran
Personally, I’m of the opinion that you’re all intelligent people who don’t need things explained to them, but I was also wondering if it would be worth creating hyperlinks within the lyrics to point out the news items that inspire these tunes…
Cuz I’m a sweet transtextual, from meta-stralia… a-ha
