The Lyrics

The Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick, was recently exposed as to having a longstanding love affair with his chief of staff, Christine Beatty. Both denied this fact under oath during a civil lawsuit brought against the mayor from two wrongly fired policemen. The Mayor lost the case and the city paid the plaintiffs $9 million. The lies (perjury) came to light after the trial when it was discovered that volumes of scurrilous text messages were sent to each over the years via city-issues pages and retained by the pager company. Now Beatty has resigned and the mayor has gone into hiding in his executive mansion. Most expect he will be indicted for perjury and, will be forced from office. Don't let the door hit your fat butt on the way out, I say!
To the tune of “Sunny” by Bobby Hebb

Kwame
Yesterday your wife was filled with pain
Kwame,
You text’d me during your mayoral reign

Now you’ve withdrawn
And the indictments are near
Kwame, do a shot and a beer
Kwame, one thing's true:
You’re all through!

Kwame,
Thank you for the nice chalet
Kwame
Thank you for the millions they pissed away
Our text’n made both of us fall
Now we can enter our city hall
Kwame, one thing’s true:
You’re all through!

Kwame,
The Freep put a sleuth on thee
Kwame, you kept the facts from the jury
My job’s now toast like snapped rubber band
And city hall just sits, largely unmanned
Kwame, one thing’s true:
You’re all through!

Kwame

Kwame,
The council wants to see your face
And the mansion ain't gonn'a be your place
You should’ve tossed that phone in a fire
Soon you’ll be sing’n in a jailhouse choir
Kwame, one thing’s true:
You’re all through!

Kwame

Kwame
Yesterday your wife was filled with pain
Kwame,
You text’d me during your mayoral reign


Now you’ve withdrawn
And the indictments are near
Kwame, do a shot and a beer
Kwame, one thing’s true:
You’re all though!

You’re all through!

You’re all through!

You’re all though!

Isn't adultery part of the job description for American big city mayors? Very well constructed, PP, particularly the snapped rubber band metaphor.

Thanks for the comp. Actually, after posting, I discovered there was another poster here with the same handle. I've been gone for a few years and used to post under the handle Eye1zLotto but I forgot the name. Oh well hope parody pete doesn't mind.
