Australian Government release ‘The Budget Blessing’ song
CANBERRA, ACT – The Australian Government has released a new song titled ‘The Budget Blessing’ to celebrate their record-breaking spending response to COVID19.
The song, a cover of the viral sensation, ‘The Blessing’, was played last night as part of the Budget announcement at Parliament House.
The Government choir informed the Damascus Dropbear they believed the new lyrics of the song would bring fresh encouragement for those who were concerned about how the trillion dollar debt would be paid back.
“We want our citizens to know that, as their loving Governments, we are seeking to bless people, to keep them, to make our face shine upon them and give them peace,” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said.
“Do not fear for surpluses, for our debt will be upon you and a thousand generations.”
“On your family and your children, and their children, and their children.”
Some church leaders have expressed concern that utilising the worship song in such a way could actually be seen as breaking the first commandment by facilitating the idea of the Government as Saviour.
However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, dismissed such concerns:
“As the Good book says, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.”
“O you of little faith! The hipsters run after all these things, and your holy government knows you need them.”
“But seek first your employment incentives, your superannuation bonuses, and secure your welfare payments – and all these things will be funded from the future as well.”
It is further reported that the Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack, required assistance during the song after being stuck in a never-ending bridge spending loop.
