The Ballad of George GallowayIt was in the year of some people's Lord 2005,
The newly elected George Galloway thought it was great to be alive.
His supporters in Bethnal Green had helped the Labour incumbent to lose
By beating up pensioners on the street and throwing eggs at Jews.
For George had run against the war, and he offered no regret
For supporting those who exploded cars and murdered Hassan, Margaret.
'The dead have got what they deserved,' cried this century's great orator,
'Every babe in its imperialist pram was a junior collaborator!'
But the U.S. Senate brought a cloud to the indefatigable one's sky,
For some oil options were given away and the Yanks were wondering why.
'I have never traded in a barrel of oil,' cried George in desperate malice,
Which was perfectly true, for the deal had gone down in the Iraqi leader's palace.
