Stray Ket Strut - The Ballad of Katie Hopkins

(to the tune of 'Stray Cat Strut')

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

White and orange I'm not sittin' on a fence
got more than enough dough to pay the rent
There's loads flat broke but I don't care
I strut right by with my tail in the air

Stray Ket strut, I'm a Katie on Ket
I'm a feline Mussolini, hey man that's that
Get a bone thrown at me from Lord Sugar man
Get my views from a garbage can

Don't go crossing my path

I'm too busy chasing publicity around
I slink down the alleyway looking for a fight
Howling to the moonlight just like the far right
Had my passport taken off me and I've been detained
for spreading race hate in South Africa - they think that I'm deranged
I wish I could be seen as carefree and wild
But I got no class and I got no style

I'm too busy chasing publicity around
I slink down the alleyway looking for a fight
Howling to the moonlight just like the far right
Had my passport taken off me and I've been detained
for spreading race hate in South Africa - they think that I'm deranged
I wish I could be seen as carefree and wild
But I got no class and I got no style
