Barnet Council Spend £1000 for a bloke in Yorkshire to write a tune for the queen

The politbureau  of Barnet bloggers contacted me and asked me to write a tune to commemorate the £1000 Barnet Council is paying a bloke in Yorkshire, who's dad happens to be a mate of Brian Coleman, to write a tune for the queens jubilee next year. Now I'd love to, but as they weren't offering to pay me £1,000 for my efforts, I pointed out that there was already a perfectly maarvellous song written which sums it up.Here's Ian Dury at his best singing about Barnet Council

Brian Coleman and a tune for the queen? Oh, well......

Richard could be the driver an articulated lorry
Brian could be a poet, we wouldn't need to worry
Daniel could be the teacher in a classroom full of scholars
Andrew could be the sergeant in a squadron full of wallahs

What a Waste.

Helena could be a lawyer with stratagems and ruses
David could be a doctor with poultices and bruises
Sachin could be a writer with a growing reputation
Robert could be the ticket man at Finchley Central station

What a Waste.
