"Waltz Into Mischief" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
The latest and greatest amazing arrival
No conscience, no shame for the game of survival
Thieves and villains and fraudulent swindlers
Gathered in tribute with marks of respect

A big hand hooray
Oh, come all ye trustful
Let the band play
A waltz into mischief

The chairman is speaking, instructs the apprentice
All faces are turned to the wizard of sentence
Years of experience fall from his tongue
Like teardrops to puddles they ripple along

A big hand hooray
Oh, come all ye trustful
Let the band play
A waltz into mischief

This king of the cowboys holds fast his deception
Rides their misgivings to rapturous reception
Calls on the crowds of white painted heads
To check under carpets while we're in our beds

A big hand hooray
Oh, come all ye trustful
Let the band play
A waltz into mischief

A big hand hooray
Oh, come all ye trustful
Let the band play
A waltz into mischief

A big hand hooray
Oh, come all ye trustful
Let the band play
A waltz into mischief

    General CommentI think it refers to this event (reagansheritage.org/html/…) - a speech by President Reagan before the House of Lords. Or any speech by the "king of the cowboys", but that one must have made them go bonkers.
    I love Madness, but politically, they have a mental age of about 12.
