Comedian and songwriter Tim Minchin has issued a rather unique musical call for marriage equality in Australia, using Peter Allen’s patriotic hit I Still Call Australia Home to take on some of the Great Bigots of this Great Southern Land.
The song, uploaded to Minchin’s Facebook page this morning, features such lyrical gems as:
“It’s bad enough these pollie-assholes pass discriminatory laws, now we’re forced to dance the plebiscite jig. But on the upside, this plebiscite might enlighten us — at least we’ll know exactly how many Aussies are bigoted cunts.”
Minchin says he opposes the plebiscite, but that if it does go ahead, we should “DROWN THE MOFOS IN ‘YES’ VOTES”.
