He’s Gotta Go

words and music by Paul Spencer, 2013

Tony Abbott, he’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go.

 

1. He’s got a gonad hangin’ out at a diplomatic function,

I hope whoever put him there is feeling some compunction.

 

And it’s throw the man out, he shall not keep the crown,

The future of this country starts with bringing Abbott down.

 

It’s partly that he lacks a basic social education,

He’s leering at his daughters and embarrassing the nation.

 

But mainly … he’ll kick us in the ditch,

His neoliberal policies betray us to the rich.

 

Tony Abbott, he’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go.

 

2. He’s got a goatish look about him in the way he leans towards you,

Or is that just him listening while ASIO records you?

 

And it’s throw the man out, he shall not keep the crown,

The future of this country starts with bringing Abbott down.

 

It’s partly that his values come from Papal declarations,

And he’d rather bring the witch-hunts back than end discrimination.

 

But mainly … he’ll kick us in the ditch,

His neoliberal policies betray us to the rich.

 

Tony Abbott, he’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go.

 

3. He’s got a ghost of Mussolini standing just behind his shoulder,

He may not be as scary but he would if he were bolder.

 

And it’s throw the man out, he shall not keep the crown,

The future of this country starts with bringing Abbott down.

 

It’s partly that in climate talks he makes an awful racket,

When he wouldn’t know a snowfall from the dandruff on his jacket.

 

But mainly … he’ll kick us in the ditch,

His neoliberal policies betray us to the rich.

 

Tony Abbott, he’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go, he’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go.

He’s gotta go.
