From the album SA Potpourri

Lyrics

IN THE PARLIAMENT

1. The members came together to do their jobs as they should do

To serve the needs of the country , to uphold true democracy

Chorus

But shouting , violence and absence

Makes for much discouragement

As these things should not be present

In the Parliament

2. And often there more empty seats than members who are attending

Perhaps the members are alas sleeping off their babalas

Chorus

3. And when they decide to discuss , they kick up such an awful fuss

That out of pure necessity , they must call in security

Chorus

4. Through either blatant negligence or else just gross incompetence

They make a total mockery of all things parliamentary

Chorus

Bridge

C’mon the rainbow nation now

We want a land to make us proud

To give us all a good future

We need a good government for sure

Chorus
