Current Affairs Karaoke

My excellent friend Jenny Laville has had a rather marvellous idea.  Spend Fridays knocking together alternative lyrics to tunes based on current celebrities or news stories and offer them up to you all to attempt to sing along.  She explains it much more elegantly than that here .

Anyway, I thought I'd give it a bash so here's the Kaiser Chiefs Versus Julian Assange

Watching the UK get lairy
Against detention arbitrary,
Staying in town is quite scary
It’s not very sensible either
The costs of the stay kept increasing
It’s taken a lot of policing
Would never have happened with Snowdon
An old wikileakean

Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker

Wanted by swedes as a rapist
He says that the claim’s without basis
He’s probably been a bit naughty
but won’t tell his side of the story
He won’t face the music in Sweden
So Assange was stuck here in London
With death threats from the Americans
That’s not very sensible

Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker

Is there anybody left in here that doesn’t want him left out there
Watching the UK get lairy
Against detention arbitrary
Staying in town is quite scary
And not very sensible

Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker

Is there anybody left in here that doesn’t want him left out there
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker
Extradite a hacker

I found it much easier to do when I could hear the original lyrics in the background - but I'm not very musical.
