"The Ugly Underneath" as written by and Andy Partridge....
First there's the handshake
It's so warm that you could bake by it
Designed to take attention from their
Ugly underneath

Then there's the wedding
The coordinated bedding
And the fairy tale shredding
Boy, it's ugly underneath

And after the pretty
There's a gluttony of pity
On a cake called nitty, gritty
And it's ugly underneath

Did you ever try to prise away the mask
Go ahead, take a spoon and try
I can tell you it's a Herculean task
Go ahead, it's okay to cry

What you're chewing on's the truth
And that's the hardest thing
To wash down with a glass of lemonade

The ugly underneath, ah

The thing with politicians is
I wouldn't have suspicions
If I saw their worst positions
And their ugly underneath

But after all the voting
Suck away the sugar coating
Now they've had you and they're gloating
Boy, it's ugly underneath

Did you ever try to roll away the wheel
Go ahead, take a fork and try
See the unattractive things that make us real
Go ahead, it's okay to cry

What you've trodden in's the truth
And that's the hardest thing
To wash down with a glass of lemonade
