"Like a Relative Unknown"
Parody Written by:
Once upon a time the park was so fine
But the mayor was a slime, you thought it was a crime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Don't fight City Hall, we'd rather have a mall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to hike about
Use the park for hangin' out
Riding with the Mountain bike crowd 
Now the Friends group feels so proud
About having to be fighting to stop The Deal.
How does it feel
How does it feel
To not own a home
Or a personal phone
Like you're all alone
Like a relative unknown?
You've gone to the Council meetings, and all the proceedings 
But you know you only used to get dissed at them
Nobody ever thought you'd rock the boat, so 7-0 was the vote 
And now you're gonna have to get pissed at them
The City tries to tell you lies
They say it's not a sale, but now you realize 
You're not buying any alibis
You know it's time to organize
And say, "Do you want to fight The Deal?"
You've sent a ton of emails to save the trails 
From the jokers and the snails
When they all failed to keep you in the dark
They never understood that it ain't no good
You wouldn't let other people try to steal the park
The mayor's on his high horse, in his campaign hat
Says the land must be denuded and leveled flat 
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really was a dirty rat
After he hid from you everything he could conceal?
It's not 550 acres and all the lawmakers 
They're all winking, thinking they've got it made
Spouting the Gospel according to Clark 
Change the Master Plan; say the park's not a park 
You've been betrayed
You wrote to the Novi News
So did Tim Gordy, but he's confused
Save the park from Sandstone, you can't refuse
Sue the City, you've got nothing to lose
It's not frivolous now, you've got big secrets to reveal.
