ELECTION DAY

D 	 A7 	 G 	 A7 	 D

1.
D
WELL THERE’S BIG MOBS OF ROUGH STUFF

AND SLINGIN’ OF BULLDUST
 	  	  	    A7
AS IT DRAWS CLOSE TO ELECTION DAY, MATE

OH THEY’RE ALL REALLY TRYIN’

AND MOST OF EM’S LYIN’
 	  	  	   D
TO GET US TO VOTE FOR THEM, ‘EY MATE

2.
THEY’RE GONNA HALT THIS INFLATION
AND FIX UP OUR NATION
IF THEY ONLY DID HALF WHAT THEY SAY, MATE
WE WOULD ALL BE IN CLOVER
THE WHOLE COUNTRY OVER
THEY’RE REAL FULL OF PROMISES. ‘EY MATE

3.
OH REMEMBER IN DROUGHT
WHEN THE BIG FROGS CAME OUT
AIR CONDITIONED THE WHOLE BLASTED WAY, MATE
AS WE BATTLED IN GRIEF
AND AWAITED RELEIF
TILL THE WHOLE OF OUR MOB PERISHED, ‘EY MATE

4.
WELL THEY DID RAISE THE PENSION
BUT LORD, WHEN YOU MENTION
THE PRICE RISE IN FOOD EV’RY DAY, MATE
I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY’RE LIVIN’
THIS LAND SHOULD BE GIVING
OUR OLD FOLK A BETTER DEAL, ‘EY MATE

5.
YEAH THOSE SPRUIKERS ARE TIRELESS
THAT YOU HEAR ON THE WIRELESS
WITH BIG MOBS OF NOTHIN’ TO SAY, MATE
BUT WE’LL VOTE FOR SOME SMARTY
WHO’S LEADIN’ SOME PARTY
AND HOPE THAT HE DOES SOMETHING, ‘EY MATE

6.
VERSE 1

7 (SPOKEN)
‘AH THIS COULD BE THE BEST VERSE I THINK
NOW IF I WERE IN POWER
I’D SHORTEN THE HOURS
AND DOUBLE OUR WHOLE BLASTED PAY, MATE
WITH A FREE BEER RATION
AND A FLAMIN’ GOOD BASHIN’
TO THE BLIGHTERS WHO GRIZZLED THEN ‘EY MATE

8.
VERSE 1

CODA:

(SPOKEN)
     A7 	  	       D 	 A7 	 D
WHAT DO YOU RECKON ‘EY MATE
