IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : XIII If you pull a lean long face Each day in fear of the next Saturday Time to tone down High C voice in Elysée Palace Yellow Jackets are closing in on the Champs Elysées Then if you insist on pulling that lone long face Just think on what could happen on Bastille Day Guest of Honour Outre Atlantique might pull your face If sacré Fourteenth of July fell on a Yellow Saturday Now if you cannot prevent pulling that lone long face On the pretext your corporate tax cuts benefit the lay You should've first laid out your plans to the populace And obtained their consent by referendum if you may No use pulling a lone long lean face When Yellow Jackets choke the roads and railway Time to move house to the Versailles Palace And there reign as Monarch of all you survey But if you must keep pulling that lone long face Best to follow in footsteps of itchy-foot Corsican's Grande Armée Take to the Chunnel set up House in Buckingham Palace Before Brexit gets pulled off by plucky Santa Theresa May © T.
