Not once (The politician’s cry)

Not once have I lied, not once have I stolen
Not once have I made a mistake in my life
Not once was I bribed, not once been beholden
Not once have I cheated on my faithful wife

Not once did a deal that was under the table
Not once did I seek to fatten my purse
Not once was I less than ever so able
Not once did I swear or bluster or curse

Not once did I drive when I had been drinking
Not once did I lie when election time came
Not once did I hide what I had been thinking
When some one had asked ‘Are all voters the same?’

Not once did I crawl to powerful nations
Not once did I sell out the people I serve
Not once did I seek to put friends in high stations
Not once when confronted did I lose my nerve

Not once did I seek to create a distraction
When things went awry and the polls forecast gloom
Not once did I hide an honest reaction
Not once did I make up a story of doom

Not once did I sell out my country for money
Not once will I pay for the sum of my crimes
The people are fools, Oh I think it’s so funny!
Not once did I say? It was hundreds of times!
