The Politician’s Song!

What’s the matter with You?
Yes, you the public ….you’ve got it all wrong
Its not really my fault my expenses are too long!
I know what I’m doing I’ve been doing it for years!

I’m speaking right from the heart,
You see its just an oversight on my part!

Put yourself in my place two houses to run,
I have surgeries to attend and people to see,
I’m part of your government .. I’m a bloody trustee!
No one is perfect …….. And mistakes do happen … even to me!

It was only £60,000 it was my other mortgage
It was an extra expense I had to claim,
You try and buy two house’s on my wage, its really quite bad,
I only earn £120,000 per year …. plus expenses!

I know if I sell my second house I’ll be quid’s in
Maybe that’s why your upset ….. Hey come on it isn’t a sin!
Its what we call a perk to the job
Like buying a salad bowl or a fountain for my garden plot,
Surely you have your perks too?

I’m an upright citizen … you know …. this isn’t a crime,
If I say sorry its an oversight …. then I can’t do the time!

I suppose … if I was a commoner then charges would be made,
For these fraudulent claims!
But Hey really …. that’s just another perk to the job!

I’m speaking right from the heart,
You see its just an oversight on my part!

Artist's Description

I’m not a political person but sometimes things stink and here in the UK the smell gets worse!
Draw your own conclusions if you may!
