Lost the Plot – Music by Paul Stanhope, Text by Michael Leunig.
“He’s lost the plot,” they say, but it simply isn’t true.
You can’t just lose the plot, it’s stuck to you!
Nor can it be chucked out or thrown into a pit.
You can’t just dump the plot, you’re stuck to it!
But you can soak the plot and loosen it with tears,
And slowly peel it back, it could take years.
And you can lose your face, and you can lose a lot,
And feel blessed when they say, “He’s lost the plot!”
