Subject: LYRIC TO
From: gerard robinson
Date: 16 Jun 98 - 03:58 AM

Does anyone have the lyric to the parody of the (Kinks?) song "Dedicated Follower of Fashion" which is a none to subtle attack on Thacherism?

Part of the chorus is: He stands up when they play the national anthem He's a forelock tugging,..... Rightwing Tory shit He's a dedicated follower of Thatcher.

And does any one know of it's origin. Thanks, Gerard

Dear Gerard,

Here's a link to the chords and lyrics of the original (c.1966) version by the Kinks. Don't remember hearing this one at the time, but it seems to have been a none-too-subtle slam at Carnaby Streeters at the time of its release. From your description and snippet of lyrics, it sounds as though Ray and the lads reworked it in dishonor of Iron Maggie several decades later. Anyway, hope this helps you some...

I remember " .... He really is a nasty little right wing Tory shit, he's a dedicated follower of Thatcher... " being sung during the People's March for Jobs '83. We seemed to feel at the time that there were a lot of candidates for the title but that John Selwyn Gummer tried hardest to earn the title.
I would love the full lyrics too, still so relevant! After all who was the first person that Gordon invited for tea at no 10?
I do wish the old lady an exceptionally long and healthy life... full of pain bewilderment torment loneliness and loss just as she inflicted on others.

The song was written by Dave Rogers.

There's one verse quoted here:

From memory (which is a little jaded)

They seek him here, they seek him there,
he's on the dole, but they don't care,
he bought himself a bike to be like norman tebbit's dad,
he's a dedicated follower of thatcher.

'oh yes he is, oh yes he is,
he stands up when they play the national anthem,
he's a forelock tucking grovelling little rightwing tory shit,
he's a dedicated follower of thatcher'.

he'd even work, for thirty bob,
to price himself into a job.
They say he must work harder even though there is no pay,
He's a dedicated follower of thatcher.

Somehow I missed that one first time round. Good song.

Somebody has gone berserk closing threads about Thatcher. Kindly lay off, whoever you are. And could somebody with a clue please reopen them?

"he's a forelock tucking grovelling little rightwing tory shit"
.,,.

"Good song."
.,,.

Well well. Tastes do vary, don't they?

What is it these boring people keep saying about how 'it's a good thing we're not all the same'?

PS - I think they actually meant "tugging", you know. Stupid little lefty ɷs couldn't even get their own song right...

MGtheM. "tucking grovelling little rightwing tory shit".

No. It should read "fucking grovelling little rightwing tory shit".

I think it's about you.

F Macormack

This standard-form reply, held in my word-processor memory, is the only response I propose to make to your recent post:?

It is my principle to make no further answer than this to merely abusive posts addressed to me, as I take your last one to be.

No further correspondence will be entered into.

Dear Mr GehtMM. I realise that the cuckoos don't leave until next month. Even so, your "standard reply" just boggles the mind. What was non-abusive about your reference to "Stupid little lefties".

BTW. My name is spelt McCormick, not Macormack. Please get it right in future. And stop abusing people.

I don't think it would count as "entering into correspondence" to exclaim to the High Heavens:--

How oh how does he do it!!
How can any mere mortal man be so gifted!!!
