Lili's Address

  Puff we now ourselves with pride
  Swelling outward far and wide
  For God Herself is on our side
  With heaven's plan for the motherland

  "All right, all right ladies,
  Settle down now, settle down"

  Now, the usual formalities
  Everyone, hold all your questions please
  You'll all have your opportunities to
  Shoot the breeze or cut the cheese

  But upon this juncture I must state
  How immensely you appreciate
  The illusion of grandeur I create
  When every trait I overrate
  And every word gesticulate
  In praise of the motherland

  Puff we now ourselves with pride
  Swelling outward far and wide
  For God Herself is on our side
  With heaven's plan for the motherland

  "Quiet please, quiet, I'm still speaking"

  Irregardless of to what we pledge
  The electorate gives me the edge
  And the boost to my ego that can't be measured
  Ruling you is such a pleasure

  Speaking of good taste in dames
  I submit to you my list of names
  Maybe some of them come up short on brains
  But good at diplomatic games
  And sycophantic without shame
  I give you the cabinet

  The privilege is strictly ours
  To have you watch while we devour
  The crumbs of presidential power
  That we can grub from Lilly

  She's got the wardrobe we adore
  Her teeth are perfect, what is more
  She knows what having friends is for
  We're silly over Lilly,
  Silly over Lilly
  'Til we're ill, we'll sing it shrilly

  Lilly is the nation's pride
  And we love her like a mother

  "You like me, you like me"

  You don't know what this means to me
  To be the one you run to see when
  You need a mother

  "All right, I feel good
  I'm a [partridge?]
  I'm ready to take you all on
  First question please"

  Tell us the end, tell us the end
  Can you confirm the rumours goin' 'round?
  For the record, one time being
  Terms of truth are being spread around

  "All right, all right, settle down buddy
  Are you ready to get an answer to your questions:
    Yes, yes, no, maybe, no,
    Maybe, not a wink, I wasn't there,
    I don't recall, the dog ate it.
  Now I certainly hope that clears up the air
  And we can get on with important business now"

  Tell us prime minister
  Tell us prime minister
  For the record
  One time, prime minister

  Sources state
  That the Archbishop's hiding some
  Thing of interest
  Something of interest

  Sources state
  Maybe you're just a puppet of
  Special interest
  Some special interest
  Special interest
  Some special interest

  We would like to know your posture please
  On the hard line's platform policies
  Like providing free to all the nation
  Mandatory mass castration

  For the sake of common decency
  The Judeo-Christian society
  Wants to guarantee a pregnancy
  To anyone past twenty-three

  Tell us prime minister
  Tell us prime minister
  We've fresh ugly rumors going 'round

  For the sake of party unity
  I've some photographs you'd like to see

  Puff we now ourselves with pride
  Swelling outward far and wide
  For God Herself is on our side
  With heaven's plan for the motherland

  All right ladies, settle down now
