CHANGES TOO

Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)



Changes ... no longer happen
Now the Liberals are the Labor fiends,
Poverty ... goes on forever
(Thanks to the Liberal-Labor); never ends.

Unemployment ... goes on soaring
Soaring up into the very sky,
The unemployed ... have no future now
That Rudd-the Dud has said he hopes they die!

Rental prices ... are also soaring
Thanks to Bonehead Stevens,
Low-end earners ... are given no respite
Until they give up breathing.

The Liberal-Labor Party ... conspires
To keep the workers poor,
Because their bosses ... Big Business
Say that want us grovelling on the floor.

THE END
