A Song for Nick Clegg*

I need a little time 
To taste real power
I need a little space 
In a coalition
I need a little time 
While they take your freedom 
I need a little… 

Funny how quick politics turns sour 
Isn’t it, isn’t it 
Told bare faced lies in your lust for power
Didn’t you, didn’t you
Promises, promises turn to dust 
Manifesto pledges burned to ash  
Trust into mistrust 

I need a little room 
To find myself 
Just have one chance
With first past the post
I need a little room 
Just me and David
I need a little… 

You need a little room for your Tory friends
Don’t you, don’t you 
Abandoned the poor, stole hospital beds 
Didn’t you, didn’t you 
LibDems promise – we fear the worst 
Shed principles – the bubble burst 
Just into unjust 

I’ve had a little time 
As a Tory mouthpiece
Now l’ve had a little room 
Seen what we’ve become
I’ve had a little time 
We did nothing wrong
I’ve had a little… 

You had a little time 
With the Tory scum
Didn’t you, didn’t you 
Led by the nose
In your dirty coalition
Aren’t you, aren’t you 
The centre ground you wanted bad 
Is yours for good 
I hope you’re glad 
A vote for you would be mad

I had a little time 
To see the polls
Had a little room 
Seen seats we’ll lose

Can’t find the courage 
To call it off 

I’ve had a little time 
I’ve had a little time
I’ve had a little time 
I’ve had a little time
