Monday music spot: the "I believe" song

A spoof Country and Western song from the "Not the Nine o'clock News" team which was broadcast shortly after the 1980 U.S. Presidential election.

I'm not going to explain exactly why I posted this to avoid a spoiler for those who have never heard this song but let's just say that to really appreciate the joke you have to listen to the very last line.

But now in 2017 I suspect many people who would have laughed at this in 1980 will be having thoughts along the lines of

"Someone really ought to bring out an updated version of this, the equivalent punchline would be even more appropriate today ..."
