Beige is the New Red

Comrades, er, I mean, friends, Let us sing:

The People's Flag is Palest Beige

(To be sung to the tune of "O, Christmas Tree". See the original lyrics.)

The people’s flag is palest beige
It’s so yesterday to maintain the rage
Tho martyrs' blood dyed it’s every fold
Their sacrifice leaves "The Taxpayer" cold

So raise the pale beige banner high,
Beneath its shade we’ll strategise
Tho Lefties flinch and Greenies sneer
We’ll keep the Beige Flag flying here

(Original poster "Tribune Fair" 1978 by the great Chips MacKinolty from the heyday of the Tin Sheds)
