BOB Kat­ter has re­leased a video singing about his cross­bench at­tack­ing the ma­jor par­ties in a hi­lar­i­ous ditty quickly go­ing vi­ral on so­cial me­dia.

The mav­er­ick MP fa­mous for his quirky in­ter­view re­sponses and vi­ral rants about crocodiles and gay mar­riage sings the song as he reads from a piece of pa­per.

Mr Kat­ter sings to the tune of Cree­dence Clear­wa­ter Re­vival’s Bad Moon Ris­ing as he war­bles about the in­de­pen­dents’ rise dur­ing the fi­nal week of Fed­eral Par­lia­ment for 2018.

“I see a bad moon a- ris­ing, I see an elec­tion on the way.”

Mr Kat­ter be­gins, tap­ping his pen to the beat.

“I see more ma­jor party in­fight­ing, I see it’s the in­de­pen­dents’ day.

“Don’t stuff ‘ round tonight, we’re bound for the fight. There’s a cross­bench on the rise.”

The video is quickly go­ing vi­ral, with more than 20,000 views so far on Facebook. And the pun­ters were here for it. “Vote 1 Bob ( or he’ll busk out­side your house),” Nemo La­ces­sit said.

“Ex­cep­tional rhythm, phe­nom­e­nal lyri­cist,” Paris Hooper added.

And Cian Wil­liams called for Bob to be named Triple J Un­earthed Artist of the Year.

But oth­ers were a lit­tle picky, scold­ing Mr Kat­ter for his lack of rhythm and his claps miss­ing the beat.

“Did they not have pri­mary school mu­sic out at Clon­curry State School?” Han­nah Carr asked.

While some of­fered up missed IT DOESN’T mat­ter if it’s the cross­bench or Santa’s lap, Fed­eral MP for Kennedy Bob Kat­ter seems to be hav­ing a jolly good time. Mr Kat­ter was pic­tured sit­ting on Fa­ther Christ­mas’ lap at a re­cent Clon­curry Shire Coun­cil com­mu­nity event, beam­ing from ear to ear. It is un­known, how­ever, what Mr Kat­ter asked for Christ­mas. Maybe on the first day of Christ­mas his true love will bring to him a dan­ger­ous croc­o­dile caught in the Dain­tree? op­por­tu­ni­ties with lyrics:

“I see … a per­son torn to pieces by a croc­o­dile every three months in North Queens­land,” Alan Stephensen said.

It’s not the first time a pol­lie has used song and dance to get his mes­sage across.

Ear­lier this year, Daw­son MP Ge­orge Chris­tensen donned Ly­cra and danced to Bey­once’s Sin­gle Ladies tune.

The stunt was to urge his gov­ern­ment to throw money at Mackay’s Ring Road project.
