THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE (50)
Nigel Parsons 18/01/2017
ttto Paul Simon "Fifty Ways"

The problem's all inside your head Theresa May.
We've listened carefully to what you have to say.
Article 50, won't you finally name the day?
There must be 50 ways to leave the EU.

And although politics is really not my game.
Those foreign politicians all seem rather tame.
And should something go wrong, it's there we'll place the blame.
There must be 50 ways to leave the EU.
50 ways to leave the EU.

Line up those ducks, Lux
Wipe off those grins, Finns
Call off the dogs, Frogs
We're gonna get free
Cancel all bets, Letts (Latvians)
You don't own our souls, Poles
Don't be a pain, Spain,
We're gonna be free.

T'resa (or 'P.M.') it grieves me so to see you in such pain.
Europe's not much to lose, and there's so much we can gain.
What we're now doing will make Britain 'Great' again
So now those 50 ways

So give the Europeans time to think this through.
And I believe they'll see there's not much they can do,
To hurt Great Britain without hurting Europe too,
Within those 50 ways to leave the EU.
50 ways to leave the EU

Hop in a bunker, Junker.
Don't be a jerk, Merk (el)
Go chew on a rusk, Tusk
We're gonna be free.
It doesn't take much, Dutch
We'll help you again, Le Pen
Join with Gibraltar, Malta
And get yourselves free.

Obviously I need a snappier title for the thread.
22 hours & no comments (whether from Brexiteers or Remainers)

Oh well, I'll try a refresh.

Write a new song, Schlong
This one is crud, Bud
Take it away, Ray
And do it quickly.
Throw it under the bus, Gus
Pull out the plug, Doug
Try the trash can, man
And let us all be.

Patience, Nigel. Even Elvis had to wait for years to become The King.

That being said, I must say that I enjoyed your little ditty.
(and yours, too, Pericles)


Cheers!
