The Lyrics

Surprisingly, we in greater Cincinnati are very sore losers. This is in spite of the Reds (baseball's most gracious losers) and the Bengals (professional sports most experienced losers). But I digress. Once again, Charlotte North Carolina has lured away hundreds of our best and highest-paying jobs. First, Duke Energy bought out our local power company (Cinergy). Now, Chiquita Brands was enticed to relocate in Charlotte by a huge package of incentives and tax breaks. What next???

Drop dead in Charlotte!
How you city robs!
You southern harlot!
You stole lots of our jobs.

With huge incentives and tax breaks, you
Reached out with your thieving hands
And gave Cincinnati a major screw.
You stole Chiquita Brands.
It's not your first time for stuff like this.
You bought our Cinergy.
And now all our jobs and our power
Were moved to Duke Energy.

Drop dead in Charlotte!
You just stole our lunch.
You're worse than Scarlett!
Choke on Chiquita's bunch!

We fear that soon you will still the Reds,
Our river, and U.C. too.
This is the plan of that sneaky wench
Your governor Bev Perdue.

Drop dead in Charlotte!
We are quite irate.
At least foul starlet
We're not in John E.'s home state! (1)

(1) - John Edwards...'memba him? Oh well, maybe we can get in on the government "green jobs" scam. ;D

Error in line two - "you" should be "your". Line one verse two - "still" should be "steal".

OMR, can I ever get you to convert over to easier error designations like V1L2 and V2L1 as above???
