Important News of the Day

You and I must make a pact,
Let's forget about Iraq
You need a diversion;
I'll be there

I'll fill up the evening news,
With a trial to win or lose
Just call a witness and
I'll be there

And oh -

I'll be there to comfort you,
Oh the DA has got me,
Aren't you glad that you're not me?
Avert your eyes from Downing Street
to my shackled, moonwalking feet
- yes you will, yes you will

Let me fill your mind with dull distraction
So much easier than taking action
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be on Fox and CNN,
with an old sordid tale they can endlessly spin
When they are balanced,
I'll be fair

And oh -

I'll be there to comfort you,
Turn your eyes from those burkas
to my wan, pallid circus
Aren't you glad I've been released?
go on back to sleep, go on being fleeced
- yes you will, yes you will

If you should ever lose the paparazzi,
you might stop electing Nazis
Look: something shiny,
over there!

Don't you think, baby, yeah yeah
I'll be there, I'll be there,
if you need diversion, I'll be there

Don't look over your shoulder, honey!

Oo!

Actually one of my favorite J5 songs. That and Ben, for reasons named above.

I'm particularly fond of the "burkas/circus" rhyme.
