O Come All Ye Pundits

 

Christ, it’s hard to watch Iain Duncan Smith on TV
Without throwing a brick – I’m sure you’ll agree
And this seems to be happening more frequently
Bring back the test card in the morning

In the world of the media, the media is king
They’d report on reporting if that was a thing
We just want some facts, we get Nick Robinson
Bring back the test card in the morning

O come all ye pundits
Show’s yer speculation
It’s stopped being fun it’s
Depressing the fuck out of us

There are gardeners and chefs eating grubs in the jungle
And radio castaways who Kirsty Young’ll
Be reminiscing with ’bout Geoffrey and Bungle
Bring back the test card in the morning

Politics, sport, music and movies
There’s always some gobshite who’s all out to prove he’s
The best on Luc Goddard or The Flamin Groovies
Bring back the test card in the morning

O come all ye pundits
Show us yer speculation
It’s stopped being fun it’s
Depressing the fuck out of us

O come all ye pundits
Joyless and triumphalist
Stuff your smug rejoinders
Just stick to the facts

O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
O come let us adore him
Robert Peston
