Angelina's Leg

There's civil war in Syria and H-Bombs in Iran
Everyone's forgotten that we're still in Afghanistan
There's riot coppers in St Paul's clearing out the tents
And religious nutters in the States who could be President
The planet Earth is warming and deforming and cracking like an egg
But apparently the biggest story in the world is Angelina's leg.

On Tuesday everyone was bugging out
Because she wore a sexy outfit to the Oscars
Like that's not been done before
Apparently that merits our attention
I don't know why she didn't adopt another orphan
She'd have showed a bit of thigh
Is it really front page news or news at all at all? The question must be begged:
It's not as though she got them out and flashed. She just showed a bit of leg.

So we're climbing down into the news barrel and scraping out the dregs
Just ignore the war and poverty and get a load of Angelina's leg.
