Revolution (VH)

The PM thinks the nation is out of touch with reality and has every reason to be happy. Still, a protest event, called revolution/uprising is planned for Tuesday.

When he heard the news, our PM began singing (to be sung to the tune of the Beatles' Revolution):

Revolution

You say you want a revolution

Well, what for? There's no need to change the world

You want an even distribution

Well, you know. That would be a boring world

And when you talk about a pay raise

Don't you know you're irresponsible?

Don't you know it's gonna be all right?

All right, all right

You say you got a real solution

Well, what for?

I'm a reasonable guy

You ask me for a contribution

Well, you know

Don't you take away my pie

And if you want money

For people with minds that hate

All I can say is that you're not thinking straight

Don't you know it's gonna be all right?

All right, all right

You say you'll change the constitution

Well, you know

There's a problem in your head

You tell me it's the institution

Well, you know

Better see your shrink instead

Your problems, you see, are a mere triviality

You're so out of touch with a thing called reality

Don't you know it's gonna be all right?

All right, all right!

All right, all right, all right!

All right, all right, all right!

All right, all right!
