Scrutineer:
The '96 election is still hanging by a thread
The last of the electorates will bring it to a head
One tiny booth in Surry Hills has not returned it's choice
Is it Keating? Is it Howard? Let your verdict find it's voice...

Band:
Keating, Keating, Keating...

Scrutineer:
The same name just keeps repeating

Band:
Keating, Keating, Keating...

Paul Keating:
I can feel my heart start beating

Band:
Keating, Keating, Keating...

Howard:
No way! That's wrong! That's cheating!

Band:
Keating, Keating, Keating, KEATING, KEATING, KEATING, KEATING!

Keating:
I thought no victory could be sweeter
I thought no day could dawn so bright
I thank my lovely wife, Annita
She's been out the back all night
Don't need no glorious procession
Don't need no streamers to be tossed
Just wanna hear this man's concession...

Howard:
Well, I'm sorry...
That I lost!

Keating:
And I am the boss!
'Cos I am the ruler of the land
They tell me I'm the man

Band:
Who da man?

Keating:
Who da man?

Band:
You da man!

Keating:
Yes I am!
I am the ruler of the land
They tell me I'm the man

Band:
Who da man?

Keating:
Who da man?

Band:
You da man!

Keating:
I am,
I am,
I am!

All:
KEATING!
