NIGEL FARAGE

entry picture

(A re-post from a few years ago, but seeing as the great man is back I thought it worthwhile to revisit.  AfficiaNandos may recognise my debt to George Formby's "Fanlight Fanny").

 

You can tell he

Loves the telly

For his chance to smarm

He would give an arm

And a leg;

Aimed to prove he

Was a smoothie

On our TV set

As he got the better

Of Nick Clegg;

Charming and urbane in his soft sell,

Weaving with his words his subtle spell

(What’s that smell?)

Nutty as a cake with fruit

But can’t wait to put in the boot

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

 

Wants a country that is white

Champion of the Barmy Right

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

Says they’re all sat on the dole

The Black, the Paki and the Pole

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

Or they’re taking English jobs

Cos they’ll work for thirty bob

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

Don’t speak English on the train

They’re the reason in the main

That the NHS is under strain

 

The slimy scrote

He claims your vote

Just like the National Front

Like Powell

He’s foul

Di-di-di-di-di-di-di

(couldn’t think of a rhyme)

 

Says it’s time that we were through

With Merkel and Hollande’s EU

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

Says it’s time that we should leave

Wants a Britain where he’s Chief

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

He’ll be “Chief” but understand

Just in Bongo Bongo Land

Nigel Farage, Black Shirt in a suit.

Thanks, Steve.
I can’t remember why I made the link between NF and Fanlight Fanny. (It was 2014, I think). Though I’ve always thought it is a cracking tune.
Although I remain a convinced Remainer, you might be aware that I snipe in any direction, Left, Right, Leave, Remain. I have to say that this seems to gall my chums on the Left disproportionately who seem to feel that somehow their icons should be immune.
“Respect” as da yoof, say.

The tune existed, Steve.. I pinched it..So it was words onto tune.
It is George Formby’s “Fanlight Fanny”, which contains one of the greatest lines of poetry ever written,
“She’s a peach but understand
She’s called a peach because she’s always canned;”.

I’m delighted I was wrong too although I was part-right about needing the away goal (3, in fact). In truth, the two games at the Etihad showed they were always one goal better than us.
