The Lyrics

No, it's not a reference to me being nuts. It's to the Mayor-elect of Philadelphia. I wouldn't want his as-of-January 1 job, because Philly has become the pits. The original song is one of the most "awesomely bad" songs of all time, presaging "bubblegum music" by at least three years.
(instrumental opening)

His name's Michael Nutter.
Philly's in a jam.
He's the guy we're voting.
Fix our city, man.

Well, we like Michael Nutter.
Goes to City Hall.
Look at mess he's facing.
Can he do it all?

We like Michael Nutter.
Philly's in a jam.
He's the guy we're voting.
Fix our city, man.

Well, John Street really blew it.
Ed Rendell is gone.
Wilson Goode, he wasn't.
And Frank Rizzo was wrong.

We like Michael Nutter.
Philly's in a jam.
He's the guy we're voting.
Fix our city, man.

Well, I know he's no Ben Franklin.
But he's seen the light.
Guys say they don't like him
can all go fly a kite!

We like Michael Nutter.
Philly's in a jam.
He's the guy we're voting.
Fix our city, man.

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
We like Michael Nutter.
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
Philly's in a jam.
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
He's the guy we're voting.
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!)
Fix our city, man.

Vote Nutter for Bread and Butter. Philly - ehh! Who cares. What they need on their bread is some genuine Philly Cream Cheese. That ought to get about 5 votes for both Mike (Da Fingah) and Nutter.

Pretty good; I laughed! I subtracted one point because you sacrificed the smoothness of the words to match the pacing--5-4-5. (Ain't I a stinker?) BTW, I like "Bread and Butter"! Also BTW, I always pictured the lead singer of that song as a black woman!
