Ms Ladson Gets Away With It – The Ursula von der Leyen Song

lyrics:
She’s got the job she was not running for
Walking through that open door.
The EU parliament did consent,
Was as always irrelevant.

And this she doesn’t want you to know:
Ladson was her name to go.
Called herself after slave holders.

Southern princess.
Noble pride.
She felt it was alright.
A pedigry others envy.
She had it all in sight.

Instigators
Of the Civil War.
Her decision
She’s got excuses for.
She gets away with it.

A great grandma
She hardly met.
A bogus terror threat.
The communists – after her head – wanted to see her dead.

And this she doesn’t want you to know:
Consultants for jobs high and low
Paid for; on a tax-payer’s dime.

Brought in Suder
From McKinsey
Who sluiced the industry
With deals from the ministry.

Ladson padded her back.
A conscience she lacked.
She gets away with it.

Perfect strangers
Saw the intranet;
The depository;
Holes in the armory.

Bad for the defence.
Come on! Let’s dance!
She gets away with it.

And this she doesn’t want you to know.
Stabs your back.
Friend or foe.
Hunts witches for cheap power games.

Robbed the military
Of its history.
Even of Chancellor Schmidt
She got rid.
The portraits went.
The vintage banned.
She gets rid of it.

Paranoia! Nazi scare!
She just loves the flair.
The truth bogged down in the mud:
She’s just a dud.

And this my friend is not yet the end.
Ms Ladson gets away with it.
The karaoke sing along:
