    Apart from just being a great song, the lyrics convey their anti-pokie message so well.
    There should be another line at the end saying "another man there was made the trains run on time" which is a reference to both Kennet and Hitler using ill-gotten funds to improve the railways. The comparison is of course a little ridiculous but the Whitlam's have never been shy about their opposition to Liberal government.
