Prank Letter to Dana

Here’s a prank letter that I sent to Dana a few years ago. It is a song about all that is wrong with Ireland, to the tune of All Kinds of Everything. >>>

The Letter

Dear Dana,

Our family is delighted that you are planning another campaign for the presidency. We will certainly be out knocking on doors for you again. So here is some money that our children raised at a sale of work selling ‘All Kinds of Everything’, and an idea to give your campaign that little something extra.

My mother is a veteran of many John Player Tops of the Towns competitions. And last weekend, she gathered the family around the piano to make a list of all that is wrong with Ireland, which she turned into this modern variation of ‘All Kinds of Everything’…

Chancers, financiers, John Bowman’s ties,
European super-states, Vincent Browne’s sighs,
Gerry Ryan, moral decline, condoms, marijuana,
All kinds of everything make me vote for Dana.

Liberals and lesbians, Michael Lowry’s charm,
Telly Bingo, Bertie-speak, Celebrity Farm,
Michael D, RTÉ, immigrants from Ghana,
All kinds of everything make me vote for Dana.

Summertime, wintertime, waiting for mañana,
Monday, Tuesday, every day, we’ll vote for Dana.

What do you think? It conveys serious points, in a light Christy Moore sort of way, and could get below the radar of the liberal media bias. Please feel free to record it and use it, as they say, on the doorsteps. We will certainly be singing it in our house to celebrate your ascent to the Presidency.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Damhnait Evans
