BREXIT 3/29 – THE VIDEO
Brexit 3/29 – lyrics
March 29, 2019, 11pm (Greenwich-time)
I had a dream of the grand old times
When they conquered Bonaparte
And splendid isolation
Was a clever strategy.
Now the party´s not the same anymore
The baked beans are tasting tired.
Somehow things have changed
Dear friends I am off.
Tell me what it is all about
My house in Spain has gone
I´ve lost the clue anywhere
Even Catalonia … is on the run.
“20 billions is peanuts, 80 billions is the problem.”
80 billions, I don´t care,
On the backseat
Of a hedgehog
…On the rocks
Heading for you.
I think we need to be very clear
Put the money on the table.
We need our money back,
As Mrs Thatcher has said.
We definitely need Brexit stamps
to celebrate these joyous days.
Though you know, there’s no such thing
(That´s what she´d said.)
A horse has died at the Cheltenham Races
Due to sudden heat at the spa.
Oh Dame Rose to which point we came?
Global warming even … in Gloucestershire.
3/29 two-thousend-nineteen, Greenwich time 11pm
I´m an island, I quit it all,
I can´t name it,
It´s a cant
I can´t explain.
Hark! the teacher speaks:
Fourtythousand years ago
The homo sapiens
Came along from Africa,
A connoisseur of arts.
Felt a little bit ashamed
He was stockier,
With shorter legs
And a bigger body.
Is there anyone at home?
Sixty minutes is peanuts, one second is the problem
Fourtythousand years, I don´t care
On the backseat of a hedgehog
Heading for you.
“Twenty billions is peanuts. It’s peanuts, 20 billions. The problem is 50, 60, this is the real situation.” Antonio Tajani, 10/18, 17.
“Leaving the European Union will be a monumental moment in British history. We definitely need Brexit stamps to celebrate this joyous and momentous occasion.” Boris Johnson, 1/4, 17.
“Most people just want the government to get on and deliver a good Brexit, and that’s exactly what we are doing” – Theresa May, 12/31, 17.
“They are casting their problems at society. And, you know, there’s no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours.” Margaret Thatcher 7/23, 1987.
