The ABC is the "Australian Broadcasting Corporation".
A nationwide network of taxpayer funded television and radio stations.

 

Privatize! Privatize!
Privatize The ABC

Privatize! Privatize!
It belongs to you and me

And if that really is
The honest absolute truth

Then I would like to sell
my little bit of it to you.

And make a lovely buck or two
Wouldn’t you?

Privatize! Privatize!
Privatize the ABC

Privatize! Privatize!
Cause it belongs to you and me.

It’s just the honest
democratic thing to do!

Privatize! Privatize!
Privatize the ABC!
 Privatize The ABC
Privatize your big fat subsidy

Cause if it really is “Your ABC”
Then doesn’t some of it
Belong to you
And some to me?

So line up folks and place your bids!

Step right up!

Privatize The ABC
Privatize your fat tax subsidy

So what’s the honest
democratic thing to do?

Privatize! Privatize!
Privatize the ABC
 Going once!
Going twice!
Bang! Goodbye!
So what’s the fuss?

If we just Privatize!
Privatize the ABC

But what about all them witty
Left-wing intellects?
And what about the biased
And politically correct?

They’d all be queuing for the dole
Brrrrr. Ain’t it cold?

Privatize The ABC!

Privatize! Privatize!
It belongs to you and me

Now what’s the honest
democratic thing to do?

Privatize! Privatize!
Privatize the ABC
