"Ban The Cities"

Parody Written by:

William Tong

The Lyrics

Written in 1996, about policies designed to screw the cities (considered Democratic strongholds) by the Republican majority in Congress led by Newt Gingrich
(instrumental intro)

Newt's going to ban the cities
Ban the cities when he's done
Newt's going to ban the cities
Ban the cities when he's done
He's got a crazy urban policy
And he's gonna have some fun

He's backed us into a corner
Tough streets and crime
He's backed us into a corner
Tough streets and crime
When he cut the aid to cities
And the homeless shelters too, this time

Well, he just wrecked the train
How can he explain
Where does he think he's going
He's going insane
Newt's going to ban the cities
Ban the cities when he's done
He's got a crazy urban policy
And he's gonna have some fun

(instrumental break)

Well, I know each time I see him
We'll hear another lie
The way he screwed the cities
Is just one reason why

Newt's going to ban the cities
Ban the cities when he's done
Newt's going to ban the cities
Ban the cities when he's done
He's got a crazy urban policy
And he's gonna have some fun
