I am a Modern Socialist



I practice anew every day



To teach the working class 



To do not as I do but as I say.



I read the Gruniard daily



To view the latest trends 



Which I can then discuss 



Over drinks with my friends.



 



My degree's in Sociology



Where I got a good Third



And I've had lots of practice



At making my voice heard.



I am working for the Party



As a Party Political Aide.



Just a few months and



My future should be made



 



When I get the chance



To fight a lost cause seat.



I shall show such dignity



In accepting my defeat



With a gracious speech



Which stands me in good stead 



And then I fight the next one 



Where the party is well ahead.



 



And the party machine



Will grind quickly into gear



And my election as MP



Draws inexorably near.



Oh I'm a Modern Socialist



And with Gruniard in hand



Will take my seat in Parliament



And join that elite elected band



 



And in the House of Commons bar



I'll raise my first subsidized glass



And drink a toast of joy



To the voting working class.



I'll sing the Internationale



On  Conference Closing Day



And instruct the working class to



Do not as I do, but rather do as I say,



For I'm a Modern Socialist,



Know the theories of stress and strife



Which makes up for the fact that I’ve



Not had a proper job in all my working life.
