    John Key sings “O Sole Mio”

    Translation follows.

    “What a great thing a world without journos
    Then I could sing serenely without ‘say no’s’
    Giovanni needs a new holiday
    What a great thing a world without journos.

    All by myself
    With my Pinocchio nose
    All by myself
    Not fronting up at all.”

    Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole,
    n’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
    Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare gia na festa…
    Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.

    Ma n’atu sole
    cchiu bello, oje ne’.
    ‘o sole mio
    sta ‘nfronte a te!

    Translation of ‘Bella Ciao’

    “SWEETHEART GOODBYE

    One morning when I awakened
    Oh beauty bye, beauty bye, beauty bye-bye-bye!
    One morning when I awakened
    I found invaders all around

    Oh partisan, come take me with you
    Oh beauty bye, beauty bye, beauty bye-bye-bye!
    Oh partisan, come take me with you
    Because I feel ready to die

    If I die fighting as a partisan
    Oh beauty bye, beauty bye, beauty bye-bye-bye!
    If I die fighting as a partisan
    You must come and bury me

    Bury me there, up in the mountains
    Oh beauty bye, beauty bye, beauty bye-bye-bye!”

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/5982946/Police-to-serve-search-warrants-over-tea-tape

    Prime Minister John Key has brushed off a question about whether or not he discussed “getting unbridled power” on the tea tape, as police confirm they will serve search warrants on four media outlets.

    “The Stranded? does anyone believe what the nasty people on The Stranded say?”

    I’m a little teapot,
    Short and stout,
    Here is my handle (one hand on hip),
    Here is my spout (other arm out with elbow and wrist bent),
    When I get all steamed up,
    Hear me shout,
    Tip me over and pour me out! (lean over toward spout)

  26. I’m a millionaire and I’m okay,
    I don’t have to think of anyone else.
    I sleep all night and I’m PM by day
    and Crosby and Textor tells me what to say.

    Just last year we introduced
    Government blockers on the internet
    they are only there to stop the porn
    so you can trust me when I say
    We won’t use them for anything else.

    We will crush those unions underfoot
    and arm the police for their protest
    if we push those wages down again
    we can indenture Kiwi labour for years and years

    I’m a millionaire and I’m okay,
    I dont have to think of anyone else.
    I sleep all night and I’m PM by day
    and Crosby and Textor tells me what to say.

    oooh, where did Campbell find that bloody worm?”
    Now I’ll have the bloody bouffant one to contend with again.

    Meanwhile here’s a song

    Oh lord it is hard to humble,
    When you’re perfect in so many ways …

  28. logie97 30

    “Obama? Obama?
    Oh shucks, have I missed a photo op with Obama?
    Are you telling me that I have been pissing about with that two-bit nobody Banks so he could get his cuppa, and all this time Obama’s been in the neighbourhood? OOooooooh”
