 There are no disasters, only opportunities
 Let the bodies pile high in their thousands
 It is easy to make promises, it is hard work to keep them
 I lead a life of blameless domesticity and always have done

 Let the bodies pile high in their thousands
 I'd like thousands of schools as good as Eton
 I lead a life of blameless domesticity and always have done
 What I worry about is that people are losing confidence

 I'd like thousands of schools as good as Eton
 I do think it's important to be transparent
 What I worry about is that people are losing confidence
 I am hoping very much to get re-elected

 I do think it's important to be transparent
 I do not believe I have been remotely sexist
 I am hoping very much to get re-elected
 I believe we now have a glorious opportunity

 I do not believe I have been remotely sexist
 It is easy to make promises, it is hard work to keep them
 I believe we now have a glorious opportunity
 There are no disasters, only opportunities.
