The Lyrics

As a resident of London, Ontario, I can't help but think of the London Knights hockey team when I hear of "even the (k)nights are better". So, here's something based on the City's bid to fix its downtown over the past 10 years, which has included moving the Knights to a new home. Since then the Knights have done much better, winning the 2005 Memorial Cup. Credit to the revitalization of Downtown London goes to former Mayor Dianne Haskett, so this parody is dedicated to her, who wondered what was wrong with our downtown 10 years ago.
I, I was the puzzled one
Wondering what went wrong
Why stores had gone
And left downtown empty

I, I was so confused
Feeling like London was dead
Then it came to me
And the crowds came out

I use to think people stayed in the suburbs
That was the heartbreak
But now that I've fixed things

(chorus)
Even the Knights are better
Now that the J-L-C is here
Even the Knights are better
Since I fixed it
Even the malls are suffering
When people go downtown instead
Even the Knights are better
Since I fixed it

You, you knew just what to do
Cause you had been lonely too
And you showed us how
To bring you downtown

And you did more
Than help our economy
Cause now you've made a fire start
And I, I can see that you feel
The same way

I use to think people stayed in the suburbs
That was the heartbreak
But now that I've fixed things
(repeat chorus)
