But like they say sheer ignorance is bliss
Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

And of their Nationality they brag
They feel superior and they differentiate
And against those who are different they discriminate.

The wrinkled old bloke with the deep suntan
But for his age he's fit and energetic
And there is still a lot of life in Stan.
