Listen to me Scream

 

The news is watching famous people

Famous for being people on the news

Sing a song, say a line, bomb twin towers

President Bush will send you flowers

Prime Minister Clark she had a spark

After all she is a woman with a heart

The journalist is a multi-national puppet

For lowest common denominator viewing

Blame yourself for what they don’t teach

Try to get what is seemingly out of reach

Row row, row, your boat gently down the stream

Life without the sugar in it makes me want to scream.

Take off your shoes, sit on the floor

Never leave your back to the door

Take off your hat, don’t get too fat

Say what you mean and stick to the facts

A tissue a tissue we all fall down

London’s got some issues some issues

Don’t be surprised if the Queen falls down

She has the weight of all our land to trip her

Trip her, trick her she wears the Maori Crown

Well tell her it matters the next time she’s in town.

Row row, row, your boat gently down the stream

Life without the sugar in it makes me want to scream.

Maori in the wars, Maori with their low scores

Fetching, scratching, shouting at the norms

Watching, touching, fighting against the laws

Taking over the army of our most septic sores

Marching to the tune of optimism with an arrow in my back

But we’re dancing, smoking and doing what we can

No point in yelling give us back our land

Shouting and belting the mouth that takes us down

Down to the river where the water flows

It’s just us and a gentle breeze that blow hard and know hard.

Listen to me scream!! @#$%^*!
