Lyndon Hood Satire: There Is No Surveillance In New ZealandSatire by Lyndon Hood
Without apologies to Blam Blam Blam.
Some apologies to all the people who already had this idea.
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
There is no one listening to your phones
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
You can all crawl back under you stones
But everybody's talking about the GCSB
Everybody's talking about the GCSB
Picking on their own country
With digital technology
We have no
 emails
We have no
 textses
We have no
 web histories
We have no
 webcam chats
  webcam chats
   no no
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
Snowden's reports fill us with no dread
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
They do it from the outside instead
But everybody's talking about the GCSB
Everybody's talking about the GCSB
But we're as safe as safe can be
There's no unrest in this country
We check that electronically
We have no
 secrets
We have no
 US spies
We have no
 Ministerial power abuse
We have no
 use of security information
  for political ends
   except we do
    that's literally what
     he said it was
      It's like he was boasting about it
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
We're not in a US data farm
There is no surveillance in New Zealand
We can all keep perfectly calm
Perfectly calm!
 Perfectly calm!
  Perfectly calm!
   Perfectly calm!
    [Repeat ad lib. Or ad infinitum, according to taste.]
