Your lies are a joke
Your dog is a horse
The cat is a lion
Your face is a ghost

Candidate, candidate

You live in a high-rise
Next to the dump
At the gated metropolis
Outskirted by stumps

Candidate, candidate, candidate, candidate

Humor is hideous
Spartan your style
Peacetime is panic
Frowns are your smiles

Candidate, candidate, candidate

The swans will sing
When the Jackdaws are silent

(You drew a line and crossed it,
Took the short straw and lost it)
