Politics Prevails as Time Goes By

    Captain Renault:

Captain Renault: “Tweet! Tweet”
(Back in the day when tweeting was done with a whistle.)

Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds? Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!

Rick: “How can you close me up? On what grounds?”
Captain Renault: “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”

[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money] Croupier: Your winnings, sir. Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much. [aloud] Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!

[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: “Your winnings, sir.”
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] “Oh, thank you very much.”

    Captain Renault:

Captain Renault (again and loudly: ‘TWEET! – TWEET! – EVERYBODY OUT AT ONCE!”

 

As Time Slips By

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

You must – remember this

A miss – is still a miss

Too high – is still too high

The fundamental things apply

As time slips by

 

And when two players woo

They still think – I’ll best you

On that – you can rely

No matter what the future brings

As time slips by

 

Bulls ship for cash in – as they leave the gate

Hearts swing with passion – jealousy and hate

Big plans need money – or else – there is no date

That – no one – can deny

 

It’s still the same old story

A fight for power glory

A case of do or die

The world will always have – its players

As time slips by

 

Some make your vote count – where they think it should

Bleeding in blind hope – your vote does them good

Settling for time loss – that keeps things where they’ve stood

That also – tilts their way

 

It’s still our same old story

The fight for our Dome’s glory

Our case of do or die

World Wonder needs our dogfight effort

‘Fore this chance – slips – away
