It Really Doesn't Matter!

  

Lyrics Edit

(Narrator)

And now, the Red Rose Gilbert and Sullivan Society!

(Neil Kinnock)

My eyes are fully open to my awful situation,
I'm increasingly unable to conceal my desperation, 
If you ask what I believe in I have simply no idea, 
Which is why I'm rather given to this verbal diarrhea. 
What I'd really like to do is go back home and have a cuppa, 
Cause I know that Missus Thatcher's gonna have me for her supper, 
As for economic policy I'm mad as any hatter, 
But I'll never be elected so it really doesn't matter!

(Chorus)

So it really doesn't matter, 
No it really doesn't matter, 
No it really doesn't matter, 
No it really doesn't matter!

As for economic policy he's mad as any hatter, 
But he'll never be elected so it really doesn't matter matter matter matter matter matter...

(Michael Foot)

Diahorrea!

(Neil Kinnock)

I tread the road of socialism firmly down the middle, 
In the hope that I will die a very decent individdle, 
My philosophy of life is like the sound of one hand clapping, 
Though I try to find the content when I offer you the wrapping. 
I do not see the point of saying something controversial, 
When I'd rather get Hugh Hudson to direct a new commercial, 
I've been packaged and presented like a foaming glass of Guinness, 
And I'll say what I believe in when I've had a word with Glenys! 

(Chorus)

When he's had a word with Glenys, 
When he's had a word with Glenys, 
When he's had a word with Glenys, 
When he's had a word with Glenys!

He's been packaged and presented like a foaming glass of Guinness, 
And he'll say what he believes in when he's had a word with Glenys Glenys Glenys Glenys Glenys Glenys...

(Michael Foot)

Belgrano!

(Neil Kinnock)

The Labour Party lumbers me with complicated cases, 
Such as whether I intend to close down all those US bases, 
But then even my opponents all agree that I am charming, 
Which is quite the only sense in which you'll find that I'm disarming. 
And when I'm making speeches I am desperately praying, 
That there's somebody who'll tell me what on Earth it is I'm saying, 
My particularly rapid unintelligible patter, 
Isn't generally heard and if it is it doesn't matter!


(Chorus)

If it is it doesn't matter, 
If it is it doesn't matter, 
If it is it doesn't matter, 
If it is it doesn't matter!

His particularly rapid unintelligible patter, 
Isn't generally heard and when it is it doesn't matter! 
His particularly rapid unintelligible patter, 
Isn't generally heard and when it is it doesn't matter matter matter matter matter matter!
