Lyrics

President Chang
No more years.

Here comes President Chang.
Here comes a lifestyle guy.
Here come President Chang.
Here come the leader of the gang. (he am!)
Here come President Chang.

Here come President Chang.
He never smokes but he sure inhales.
President Chang got the looks
From Mumar Khadafi to the princess of wales.

President Chang in his sneakers.
President Chang on his back.
Dopey got to dance with Crazy Patsy

Ross Perot - ears!
Patsy Cline

But President Chang got Fleetwood Mac.

Bring on the Land Witch, oh wheel on the Land Which?

Stevie Nicks

Whaddya think about that, Jack?
Kennedy

Whaddya think about that?

No more years.

His teenage daughter buys her clothes in a Tokyo boutique.
His teenage daughter buys her clothes in a Tokyo boutique.
And the name of this store?
I know you'll never believe me.
Yeah the name of this store?
I know you'll never believe me.
Tiny Spoons Club
Are we twigging something here?
Tiny Spoons Club
It's a lifestyle store.
Tiny Spoons Club
Are we twigging something here?
Tiny Spoons Club
It's a lifestyle store.

President Chang in the whitehouse.
President Chang in the charts.
President Chang in the classroom.
This is the way that he starts.

President Chang in Managua.
President Chang on the moon.
President Chang at the High School Hop.
President Chang with a bucket and a mop.
President Chang on the carpet.
President Chang for the free.
President Chang in the nation's heart.
President Chang, believe me.
President Chang in a state of suspense.
President Chang in the name of defence.
President Chang in the imperfect tense.
President Chang on a barbed wire fence.
President Chang in Honolulu.
President Chang in Beijing.
President Chang on a Christmas T.V. special.
Hear the little children sing

No more years.
No more years.
No more years.
No more years.

President Chang is a lifestyle dude.
President Chang wears lifestyle shoes.
President Chang has lifestyle hair.
President Chang ain't going nowhere.
President Chang got a job for life.
President Chang has a beautiful wife.
President Chang got it coming his way.
President Chang is in the neighbourhood to stay.

Here come President Chang.
Here come a lifestyle guy.
Here come President Chang.
Here come the leader of the gang. (he am!)
Here come President Chang.

No more years.

Why vote for the lesser evil?
Why vote for the lesser evil?
Why vote for the lesser evil?
Why vote for the lesser evil?

Waiting For The Love Bus
There's a clean, simple sound to a lot of this that Condition Blue detractors might appreciate. I'm ten years older now than when I made Bath, and right now, after all that morbid stuff, it only really feels like about three. There's rockin' shit and there's a big ballad or two and some weird little pop songs and a nice family sing-along about penguins. I hope you like it.

Insight

The Butcher Says..
"Chang" is London slang for Columbia's No. 1 Export. As far as that song goes, I reckon things couldn't be clearer. If the line "He never smokes, but he sure inhales" reminds anyone of a contemporary politician... well, hey, it's topical, and it also says exactly what I want to say.

Wrestling with life in Post-Historical Universe, we cast around awhile among some of the more extreme options open to the modern voter. A photo appears in a magazine in Florida showing the Grand Wizard of the local chapter of the KKK in full drag: he is eighteen. A drawing appears in a British newspaper depicting John Major strangling Norman Lamont with his underpants. Can being The President's man help your self-esteem? Your sex life? Why worry about Home Affairs when you will have No Home? Why vote for the Lesser Evil?

    Well.... I suppose you have to vote for the lesser evil, so that one morning you don't wake up to the f-ing BusH Junta running your country!
