Subject: A song for the Millibands
From: McGrath of Harlow
Date: 29 Sep 10 - 05:52 PM

How about "Two Little boys"?

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played, each summer's day
Warriors both of course
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said:

"    Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys" ...

Long days passed, politics came fast,
Daily they talked away.
Sometimes with wit,
Sometimes bulls..t
But they always had something to say!

If Ed Balls is deputy leader, they'll be able to say:-

"Two Eds are better than one!"

I got there before the editor of "The Sun"!

Spent an hour or two last night (when I had promised myself to get out to a localish club..) pondering over a parody about them, as the vein is rich.

I was working on something from Dire Straits "Brothers in Arms" but having read this, I like "Two Little Boys" and will hopefully have something ready for a gig on Saturday night.

Thanks.

Even before the conference fiasco (apparently "Why are you clapping?" was nothing more than "raising a wry eyebrow" - post-spin by D Miiband), I heard a version of this Child ballad, suitably adapted for the occasion, sung as a floor spot.

Then of course there is:

Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee
Resolved to have a battle,
For Tweedle-dum said Tweedle-dee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew by a monstrous crow,
As big as a tar barrel,
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.

I was gigging the other night and someone requested 'Part Of The Union and almost without thinking I changed the 2nd verse to

"Before the union did appear, my life was half as clear
Now I've got the power to the working hour
And every other day of the year
So although I'm a working man, I can ruin Ed Miliband
Though I'm none-too-hard, the site of my card
Makes me some kind of superman"

Loved the one about brother 'Glenn' though!

Ed Milliband is a Bastard

Ed Milliband is a bastard
We call him Ed the Red
And if he gets elected
You'll wish that you were dead.
He has bad breath and dandruff
His farts are loud and smelly
He is much more objectionable
Than he looks on telly
But you can read the sorry facts
Behind Ed's dismal tale
Its there with all the gossip
In tomorrow's Daily Mail

Ed Milliband is a stinker
lets stick to all the facts
He looks he's a paedo
And he's bound to charge more tax
He'll give back all the loot Brave Maggie won
From all those nasty frogs
He'll build luxury homes and give out cash
To all the scrounging wogs
But more will be revealed my friends
Next week in The mail, you'll see
Moreover we will give away
A brand new DVD

Ed Milliband is a stinker
He's run by Moscow central
We should hang, draw and quarter him
And then burn his entrails
Theres rumours about his drinking
the parties and the drugs
And that isn't his real hair, you know
he has to wear a rug
We've seen the picture of Stalin
That every night he kisses
Not to mention the heroes graves
On which regularly pisses
But theres more revelations
so watch now without fail
All the front page news my friend
In next years Daily Mail.

On Radio 4 this weeked they had talked the original writer of a "comic" piece called "My Brother" into parodying his own work. Originally recorded by Terry - oops forgotten surname, of Terry and June.

Terry Scott, and I think the programme was Broadcasting House. But they don't do transcripts, just Listen Again

http://cazzyjones.blogspot.com/2010/09/ed-and-david-miliband-two-little-boys.html

Two little boys had two little toys
A hammer, and a sickle too
Gaily they played each summer's day
Socialists through and through

One little chap then had a mishap
Off came his hammer's head
Wept for his tool - naive young fool
As his older brother said

"Did you think I would start you crying
With one swing of my sickle true
Don't you stammer, it's just a hammer
I'm much more sly than you

When we grow up we'll both be MPs
And we'll rise up above the noise
Just remember that you're the younger
Though we're just two little boys"

Long years passed, Brown quit at last
Burnham's hopes fade away
Abbott too loud
Balls mad and proud
Must be a brother's day

Up rang a shout, result's finally out
Out from the ranks so red
David's bid crashed, all hopes are dashed
Then came the voice of Ed -

"Did you think I would leave you dying
When I can stick the knife in too
Cry your tears, bro, the unions picked me
Though the membership wanted you

You just took the result for granted
One banana skin's wrecked your poise
Never thought once that I'd remember
When we were two little boys"
