IN CONVERSATION WITH… A Stimulating Package

An eye to the hand that says hobs.

Malcolm Turnbull’s racing down the charts
He’s trying to break your bleeding hearts
He’s trying to fudge the stimulus
To stop the cash getting to us

He says the money won’t be spent
In ways that help the Government
Won’t help our brand new deficit
Just drive us deeper into $200 billion in debt

He’s a man who favours tax breaks
If you get to keep your job
Unemployment’s 4.5%
But set to grow into an angry mob
Who won’t get anything
Despite all of these stimulating
Packages and taxes
At least we’ll insulate the Upper House

Perhaps it keeps the hot air in
Our contribution to this global warming thing
To offset infrastructure that supports mining
Yeah we’re building a better tomorrow
That looks like yesterday

There is a sense of urgency
You can hear it in Rudd’s plea
To move this package through the house
Without mucking it about

But Turnbull is a money man
Not used to spending out of hand
Jobs are the future we agree
So stimulate this package responsibly

It’s a stimulating package
It’s like Thorpie in Speedos
The pearl necklace will have to wait
Until we see which way this package goes
But all the polls agree
Rudd looks like he’s sitting pretty
Packages and taxes
Perhaps they’ll even work let’s wait and see…

The bit that I don’t understand
Is spending billions we don’t have
In lots of one grand
And who lends us the money?
What’s their interest plan?
Feels like we’re borrowing
A better tomorrow
Like we did yesterday.

  1. yay for audio!

    my god, you can really hear both all of the moisture in both of your mouths…. or is this something that i miss out on because i don’t listen to radio? It almost feels like i’ve got the two of you sticking your tongues in my ears.

    To answer your question it’s the Illuminati. >_>

    Although I suspect it’s a combination of international banks, and similar financial institutions. So.. ah, yes, it’s imaginary money, but we have to pay it back, because we borrow the imaginary money from real people working for corporations and conglomerates, which are like imaginary people, but they have laywers, and you don’t get told off by your mother for talking to them in public.

    It’s nice to finally hear more of your songs, rather than just imagining what they sound like.

  2. Oh dear: the IMF is running out of cash! Who’da thunk it… you can’t (as a nation) borrow your way out of a Depression caused by bad loans.
