about

A song written for the Lib Dems in search of better politics for the UK. Written by Peter Cook, author of 'Best Practice Creativity', 'The Music of Business' and 'Sex, Leadership and Rock'n'Roll' and performed with a little help from his friends. The song came from the basement and was recorded in double quick time, nonetheless it's message is pure and passionate

lyrics

Verse

I just can’t decide, red or blue
Both the same, neither working for you
I don’t wanna make politicians history
I just want the Democrats to have a single victory

Liberal Democracy’s for you and me
If only we had the vision to see
That pendulum politics is bad for the nation
No more spin, we need regeneration

Chorus

I feel I’m going backwards into tomorrow
No future, no hope, just pain and sorrow
Let’s get rid of blue, no more red
Let’s vote for liberty and orange instead

Verse 2

Red for expenses, blue for sorrow
We need great leaders we can follow
Give reasonable people a reasonable chance
Of running the country, so give ‘Dem’ a stance

Spread the word and make yourself heard
Labour’s track record is just absurd
The Tories stand for an us-and-them society
We need a fresh start – So give us democracy

Chorus

Middle 16

All we are asking
Is give ‘Dem’ a chance

Verse 3

Now I know, it’s neither red nor blue
Both the same, neither working for you
I don’t wanna make politicians history
I just want the Democrats to have a single victory

Liberal Democracy’s for you and me
If only we had the vision to see
That pendulum politics is bad for the nation
No more sin, we need liberation
