You can revise your classics at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhyiqGIJQus. Here goes, a dose of Hare Krishna shake that shows my age:

Give Prayuth A Chance by John Lemon And The Plastic Oh No Band

Two, one two three four
Ev’rybody’s talking about
Votism, Redism, Patriotism, Takcynism, Grabism, Kingism
This ism, that ism, ism, ism, ism

All we are saying is give Prayuth a chance
All we are saying is give Prayuth a chance

C’mon
Ev’rybody’s talking about ministers
Senators, legislators ’nd other tricksters
Bikkhus and cuckoos and monkeys and what-have-yous
And mueng-mueng, koo-koos

All we are saying is give Prayuth a chance
All we are saying is give Prayuth a chance

Let me tell you now
Ev’rybody’s talking about
Constitution, restitution, recreation
Confiscation, obfuscation, denigration
Mediation, meditation, rehabilitation
Get off at the next station

Ev’rybody’s talking about
Thep and Yingluck, Yawapha, Surapong
Kittiratt Prachachalerm Tango Chaturon
Sondhi Lim, Thanapol, Pravit
Banharn and the Yellow Submarine
Hare, Hare Krishna

All we are saying is give Prayuth a chance (8)

  1. I never should have read this. Thanks to you, I have just spent the last 3+ hours on youtube watching and listening to the Beatles, Bob Dylan and everyone else from the sixties and right thru to their last performances into 2007. I happened to be walking past John Lennon’s apartment building in my neighborhood on the upper west side shortly after he was killed that terrible day. A bystander told me what had happened. So many memories tied to this song. And you thought you were being cute! Well, OK, let’s give Prayuth a chance — as if you have a choice. Good luck.

  2. ;-)
    Well, how to you think I too spent the last midnight?

    • After the above, I was then able to google up a free copy of their film, Help! An interesting taste of the “good old days” of my generation. Not bad actually.
