I sit here on my pot the herald is the only paper I got
Too big to wipe my arse, scratchy and hardly if not
Massive load rubbish bursting from every corrupt page
Rich only blessings, then advertising how they rage
Wealthy is healthy, obeisity & junk food they adore
All the ingredients Herald shits, wait yes there is more!
Check out Aussie Loan shark boss a pure honest card
Seem to have lost his dick never sees it when it’s hard.
He’s always in the paper; they can’t wait to show his face
Large and big not custom size the herald sets that pace
A corrupt developer throws in a plan only just to lour
Unsuspecting buyers purchase a plot of defective manure
Banks then work overtime snatching a battler’s lot
Only thing the herald writes about celebrities who are hot
Update on what’s rotten, menus that will make you sick
Brothels and escorts drown in print everything for your dick
Read your heart out while you shit as thieves reap and sow
Con artists, criminals, fakes all advertise shit what a way to go
Forget not the most expensive ads, dearest ones around
Every crook you’ll find inside to rip you off in old Sydney town
Dealers off load their crap on line or sell on their special page
Manufactured news you’ll find more rubbish on the stage
Politician’s dreams of congestion they can’t overcome
See the front page and look inside how the rich overrun
I sit here on my pot Herald is the only paper that I got
Too big to wipe my arse, too scratchy, a load of rot (Rubbish)
