Parody Song Title:
"The Ballad of Giuliani, part #1"
Voice of those wild Trump Years!.
Born in East Flatbush, down in NYC,
'Greenhorn' family from Tuscany.
Dad done time in Sing Sing for robbery,
An' Rudy volunteered for Robert Kennedy.
Voice of those wild Trump Years!
At Manhattan College, took philosophy.
Enter the priesthood? "No that's not for me!"
Studied Law at New York University,
To graduate 'cum laude' with J.D. degree.
Starting up his career.
To prosecute felons gave him a thrill.
Though tactics like the 'perp walk' were 'overkill'
As U.S. Attorney he showed great skill.
His record of convictions is unequalled still.
Outshone his legal peers.
He fought single-handed through the Mafia Wars.
Racketeering mobsters he did abhor.
Put their capos behind bars, and settled the score,
And RICOed* inside traders, and convicted more.
Fearless Rudy launchin'
His politickin' career.
Two terms as Mayor start in '93,
The first Repub. in office there since John Lindsay.
Libs felt queezy with the GOP, but he
Cleaned the streets, cut crime, and folks said "That's for me!"
The Big Apple's brigadier.
He craved a Senate seat; to lose was gall.
'Specially to Hillary, he'd hate to fall.
But marital scandal, and a doctor's call,
And bad race relations triggered his withdrawal.
Back in the Mayor's chair.
Rudy was the guy in charge when Towers fell.
At Ground Zero visited and stayed a spell.
Folks felt he handled the disaster well,
And was honored by the Queen as I've heard tell.
* RICO - The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE in part #2.
