With apologies to Elton John and Bernie Taupin...

So, Gordon Brown's no longer prime minister. No one's particularly upset about it, but remembering the death of a certain royal figure I was far too young for, and having a bit of Elton John on the brain, I ended up coming up with this...

Goodbye, Gordon Brown,
Though we never liked you at all,
At least you're somewhat better than
The prick who's now in charge,
He swans around in Downing Street,
Sipping wine and eating canap├ęs,
Cuts public services,
It's us who'll have to pay.

And it seems to me,
That trying to cast a vote,
It's just like pissing in the wind,
Nothing we say or do can ever change,
Whether Dave gets in...
And I would have liked to have voted,
But I was just a kid...
But Thatcher burnt the country out
Before Gordon ever did.

TV debates were tough,
But all three went that extra mile,
Nick Clegg wowed us all,
As Gordon learned to smile.
And though the ladies swooned,
It didn't mean there were any more seats,
For the Liberal Democrats,
It seems our voting system's weak.

And it seems to me,
That trying to cast a vote,
It's just like pissing in the wind,
Nothing we say or do can ever change,
Whether Dave gets in...
And I would have liked to have voted,
But I was just a kid...
But Thatcher burnt the country out
Before Gordon ever did.

Goodbye Gordon Brown,
Though we never liked you at all,
There's a "new kind of politics",
and I guess it's time to leave.
Goodbye Gordon Brown,
From the young man who still can't cast a vote,
Wouldn't have voted labour anyway,
It's Lib Dems all the way.

And it seems to me,
That at least, at last,
The lib dems have some power,
I guess the whole election's
Been Nick Clegg's finest hour,
And I would have liked to have voted,
But I was just a kid,
And Thatcher burned the country out
Before Gordon ever did...
