It Was Twenty Years Ago Today

With Apologies to Lennon and McCartney.

It was twenty years ago today,
A new party came out to play
They'd been two parties for a little while
The leaders’ puppets raised a ‘Spitting’ smile.
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all those years,
The Social and Liberal Democrats that was.
We were Paddy’s Social, Liberal Democrats,
But we started off kinda slow
Cause David Owen and his splinter band,
Kept trying to have another go.
Charlies’ Liberal Demo, Ming’s Liberal Democrat
We're Nick Cleggs’s Liberal Democrats.
It's wonderful to be here,
It's really been a thrill.

You're such a nice electorate,
You listened to us on Iraq,
We'd love to have your vote.
We'd love to have your vote.

I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought that you might like to know,
That the leaders’s going seek a vote,
On whether we’ should jump the EU boat.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only party brave
Enough to offer a EU Referendum.
