‘Queenmaker’ by Anecdata was released on October 16, 2020. A catchy little synth-grunge number about NZ’s most hated/loved politician. #nzpol knows who I’m talking about.

Download it here or on Bandcamp, or stream it at any of the usual services.

(Note: An earlier, inferior version of the song was released in 2017 under the slightly different title, ‘The Queenmaker’. This recording can still be found on streaming services. No, I won’t be linking it!)

LYRICS

Queenmaker
here he comes
he don’t want a thing you have to give
he’s kingmaker now
get ready to bow
’cause you’re working for himbuckle up
break it down, you’re gonna be waiting
he’s queenmaker now
you’re just a cash-cow
this is a forewarningqueenmaker, rise againhere he comes
whiskey breath and suit from a tailor
he’s kingmaker now
but selling a vow
just like a retailer

unforgivable on the left
inadmissible on the right
that’s the thing
he’s traditional, can’t you see?
it’s irrational that he would make you king

when it happens
if it does not go the way you want
there should be no shock
this isn’t a spock
there will be no logic

here he comes
do you want the same as he
will you sink
duck and dive as low as we

we have in the past
it never can last
as long as a degree

unforgivable on the left
inadmissible on the right
that’s the thing
he’s traditional, can’t you see?
it’s irrational that he would make you queen
