Huhne and Pryce – Gilbert and Sullivan style

Via Matthew Norman in the Telegraph:

Judge: Whoever you are, you will sit in the dock.
You, sir, in your suit, and you, ma’am, in your frock

A Cabinet Minister you may well once have been

In the land of economics you may be a queen

But the wheels of justice care not for your stock

So whoever you are, you will sit in my dock

Chorus: Oh whoever you are, you will sit in his dock

Yes, whoever you are, you will sit in that dock.

I think that is based on “I am so proud” from the Mikado, which goes:

To sit in solemn silence in a dull, dark dock

In a pestilential prison with a life-long lock
