The Lyrics

A heartfelt tribute to New York's most upstanding tabloid that's as fair and balanced as, well, Fox News! (They're owned by the same guy, right?) OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPXnoLAEUSQ
They only care what the right thinks!
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.

They smear my fingers with their black inks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.

Well, New York’s papers are the Times and News,
And Newsday’s great, I think,
But there’s a tabloid (that) gives me the blues:
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.

(instrumental break)

The reputations that Page Six sinks!
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.

It’s Rupert Murdoch’s little rink-dink!
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks.

Well, ol’ Al Hamilton has long been dead;
Back then, he made you think.
Now, it’s the worst rag (that) I’ve ever read.
I bought the Post and the Post stinks!
I bought the Post and the Post stinks!

Scored high for execution. Maybe I can write "TIMES is on your side...yes it is!" ;D

How about "Lies Post" for "High Hopes"?

OMR: Go for it! (You too, JB!) BTW, the security code is 72Q, and the Q72 bus isn't far from where I live!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: The Times is the face the City prefers to show the rest of the world, the Daily News is the face the City prefers to show itself, and the Post is a face only a mother could love! But not my mother (from the Lower East Side) or hers (from South Jamaica, Queens). How does that song go? "And the three men I admired most all said they wouldn't read the Post." Now, if we can just get Daily News boss Mort Zuckerman, who I otherwise like, to stop shilling for Mayor Moneybags...
