Lyrics: Bill Casey.
Tune: “Yankee Doodle.”


Come listen, all kind friends of mine.
I want to move a motion
To build an Eldorado here.
I’ve got a bonzer notion.

Bump me into Parliament;
Bounce me any way.
Bang me into Parliament
On next election day.

Some very wealthy friends I know
Declare I am most clever.
While some can talk an hour or so,
Why, I can talk forever.

Bump me into Parliament;
Bounce me any way.
Bang me into Parliament
On next election day.

I know the Arbitration Act
As a sailor knows his riggins,
So, if you want a small advance,
I’ll talk to Justice Higgins.

Bump me into Parliament;
Bounce me any way.
Bang me into Parliament
On next election day.

Oh, yes, I am a Labor man
And believe in revolution.
The quickest way to bring it on
Is talking constitution.

Bump me into Parliament;
Bounce me any way.
Bang me into Parliament
On next election day.

I’ve read my Bible ten times through,
And Jesus justifies me.
The man who does not vote for me,
By Christ, he crucifies me.

So, bump them into Parliament;
Bounce them any way.
Bung them into Parliament.
Don’t let the Court decay.
