The Lyrics

Gadjillionaire Michael Bloomberg was just re-elected Mayor of New York City by a sizable margin, defeating relatively cash-poor ex-Bronx President and challenger Fernando "Freddy" Ferrer. "Experts estimate that when all is accounted for, Bloomberg will have spent $80 million to $100 million of his personal fortune to defeat a challenge by Democrat Fernando Ferrer, a former Bronx borough president who trailed in public opinion polls by as much as 38 points" (Reuters).
My paper says I must vote for Bloomberg,
Must vote for Bloomberg now.
My paper gives a few reasons why,
But one reason stands out, and how.
(And how, one reason stands out, and how!)

A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend,
And that's how Bloomberg won!
Opponents steeped in poverty,
Opponents do not have or see
A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend,
And that's how Bloomberg won!

(Gong)
Miracle of TV ads!

When a Bloomberg promo is filling the screen,
Filling the screen every hour,
Ev'ry image and word turns our brains to curd.
You'd think the ads would lose their pow'r!
We keep hearing "Bloomberg!" all day and all night.
We get confused and upset.
Equal time falls down like a clumsy clown.
The rule of balanced time's all wet! (It's all wet!)

A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend,
And that's how Bloomberg won!
When Fred Ferrer would show his face,
The Bloombucks blew him out of place!
A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend!
And that's how Bloomberg won!

In ev'ry single minute, a campaign ad is on,
On CBS-TV or ABC or Channel One!
A hundred million bucks to spend!

A rumor of his affluence is sitting on its dregs,
Then suddenly his cash has wings and eyes and feet and legs!
A hundred million bucks to spend!

The Bronx's old ex-President, just 7 million tall,
Decides that he will try to run, but, no, he has to fall.
A hundred million bucks to spend!

A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend!
A hundred million bucks to spend!
And Bloomberg wins the day!

A hundred million bucks to spend.
A hundred million bucks to spend,
And Bloomberg wins the day.

Mike Bloomberg says he'll still be our mayor,
Still be our mayor now.
Mike Bloomberg says a few reasons why,
But one reason stands out, and how.
(And how, he spent the big bucks, and how!)

John Jenkins - November 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Not sure why there haven't been any votes or comments yet. Very good point (and a very well placed "gong") about the role of money in politics. Here in California, Big Labor also "invested" $100 million - to defeat Schwarzenegger's four initiatives. I think the best form of campaign finance is to shrink government - so that there is less reason for people/corporations/unions to spend money to influence election outcomes.
