Tracy Whatshite, Cadet Reporter, attended the “Bellies” (held at Bellamy’s) and found out who the winners were in this year’s competition for the Best Political Song of 2014. She spoke with the judge Frankie Stevens.

“Competition was particularly intense this year and the top entires included some old favourites, but also some surprizing new comers,” he said.

“Medleys were popular this year, although that is what we have come to expect from Peter Dunne. Bill English entered his perennial song, “There is no Depression in New Zealand”, but we felt it was a stale re-hash and lacked credibility so it wasn’t placed,” Steven’s added. “The Greens also re-entered their song “We are the Champions (of the Planet)”, but as it was last years winner, it was dis-allowed”.

“Of course, Best Newcomer went to Kim Dot Com, with “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet (and Maybe there will be nothing to see). But the winner based on Carole Baker- Sayer’s hit “Your Moving Out Today”, was the stand out song,” said Stevens.

“Your Moving Out Today (and we are Throwing away the Shon Key)”, is a catchy tune with inspirational lyrics. We really think this song nailed it”, said Stevens,

And now we can reveal this winners:

  1. So Long, Farewell, Auf Weidersein, Haere Ra The Maori Party.
    (From the Sound of Music)
  2. Six Months in a Leaky Boat/ Peter Dunne
    Rescue Me
    (Medly)

  3. I am Woman (hear me Roar) The Labour Party Women’s Choir

  4. I am Man (Hear Me Roar) Shane Jones.

  5. Nobody Takes Me Seriously Anyway Colin and The Conservatives.

  6. All I want for Christmas is a Cup Jamie Whyte and The Act Party.
    of Tea

  7. You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet Kim Dot Com

  8. Don’t Cry for Me Orivida Judith Collins.

  9. It Takes Two (Baby Yeah) David Cunliffe and Matt McCarten

We now bring you the lyrics to the winning song………….

YOUR MOVING OUT TODAY (AND WERE THROWING AWAY THE SHON KEY)

You traded money then became the PM

Voters stayed home and so you got in again,

May I remind you it has been six years since then en, en,

Last night the Sallies well the said to me (what did they say) ?

They said there’s been a rise in poverty (that’s what they said)

Perhaps you might enjoy a house in Hawaiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Pack up your Shonkey Smile, your dirty top draw file,

Your syncophantic press, your assets sales mess,

Pack your fat cats away, your chats with Cam away,

Your Cabinet rats away.

Your moving out today

Pack up your TPP,

Your greasing royalty,

Your spies from GCSB

Your dodgy cups of tea,

Your rise in G.S.T.

Your tax cuts for the rich,

The deals you like to stich……………

Your 90 day work trials,

Your Collins, Joyce and Ryall,

Please go a milion miles

Your moving out today

La, la la, la la la……….

    You left out the rank and file of New Zealand First singing Who Do You Think You are Kidding Mr Key

    Trouble is, I still suspect the majority of NZ First voters are quislings.

  2. Mary 2

    Who let this puerile rubbish on to TS?

  3. A shocking oversight The Al1en didn’t get a mention with his ‘Faeces of the species’ track.

    Very disappointing.
    My pick would have been “The Carnival is over.” Serenaded by Judith Collins and Steven Joyce, and as the music fades, the real bun-fight begins.
    Still another piece of fascinating journlizm.

    Turn out the lights, the party’s over…

    Don’t Cry for Me Orivida lyric

    Polity: Losing count of Judith’s lies

    • sussannact 6.1

      Thank you for posting the full lyrics to “Don’t Cry for Me Orivida” Our judges only heard a sound bite of the song, and hadn’t noticed the song previously posted on this website.

      Having seen your song in full glory, we think it is definitely a first equal to Your Moving Out Today And we are throwing away the Shon Key and the title will now be a shared first equal.
