Independents Day

Independent men of independent thought
Men of strong conviction whose vote cannot be bought
Independent men who'll make decisions that are right
Not afraid to ask tough questions, not afraid to pick a fight

Independent men who've walked away from party pacts
Who, as they reach a decision, should just stick to the facts
Labor lost 16 seats whilst the Coalition won 14
Clearly the Australian voters have vented their spleen

Sick of Labor mismanagement and their rorts and waste
A swing against Labor of 5.4, we want them out post haste
A primary vote to Labor of just 38%
There is no ambiguity about what the voters meant

The Coalition got 5.7% more of the primary vote
And lead the 2PP votes, independents please take note
The Coalition has won 73 seats, Labor just 72
On every single measure, the decision's been made for you

More votes, more preferences, more seats, a positive swing of 1.6
Don't be sucked in by Labor's deceitful bag of tricks
The Coalition deserve to govern, they've earnt it by every measure
If you back the ALP, you'll bring about much displeasure

Listen to your own constituents, they want conservative rule
Any other decision you'll be forever branded as a fool
Every statistic says the voters have branded Labor as a failure
So please back the Coalition and restore order to Australia
