I know you’ve come through so oft’ before
But the time has come to ask for more.
So, let me be firm and let me be clear
World peace tops my list this year.
And the climate seems to be a mess,
Perhaps you could teach us to use less.
Remove animals out of cosmetics
And take religion out of politics.
And why not knock off the odd disease
And remove the pirates from the seas.
And stop folk cutting down our trees
And improve the quality of what's on our TVs.
And rid the streets of hoons and louts
And ban the sale of Brussels Sprouts.
But if all this is just a wish too far
I’ll happily settle for a good Pinot Noir.
