BOB HITS RIGHT NOTE
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.
