The Times They Are A-Changin'

- With apologies to Bob Dylan

Come gather 'round people where ever you roam
And see funding for services cut to the bone
By a pack of incompetent, self-serving drones
Their fat arses are all that they're savin'
For three years the economy's sunk like a stone,
Oh the times they are a' changin'!

Come writers and critics who prophesy with your pen
Every time they stuff up they blame Labor again
Wasting millions of dollars on government spin
But it's people on welfare they're blamin'
And I just want to punch Mr Pyne's gormless grin
For the times they are a' changin'!

Liberal senators, MHRs please heed the call
You get paid far too much to do nothing at all
While the rest of Australia's wage growth has stalled
What Scott Morrison says it enragin'
We should line up the lot of them against a wall
For the times they are a' changin'!

Come racists and bigots throughout the land
Peter Dutton is happy to give you a hand
It is obvious they have no credible plans
For a population that is agin'
And I'm really not sure how much more I can stand
For the times they are a' changin'!

The line it is drawn the curse it is cast
Malcolm Turnbull your government's stuck in the past
Just like Abbott you screwed up incredibly fast
As a PM you're hopelessly failin'
Now the rich all come first and the poor all come last
For the times they are a' changin'!
