The mayor sings a new Christmas classic

He made a public appearance this week, but reporters and news anchors were so in awe of him singing at a hospital that they forgot to ask any questions. The song was that good. Although the audio was garbled, I managed to decipher the lyrics.

"Richard the Friendly Mayor"
To the tune of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"

You know city and minority
and hired truck scandals,
Clout-heavy, two-bit crooks
And various vandals,
But do you recall
The mayor behind them all?

Richard, the friendly mayor,
had a very scandalous year.
If you were his opponent
you would even stand and cheer.

All his incompetent cronies
used to pay and get a job.
You’d even think slick Richard
had connections to the mob.

Then one splendid summer day
Prosecutors came to say:
“Richard, with your machine so tight,
don’t you know corruption’s not right?”

Then all his cronies lost jobs,
and they shouted with anxiety,
“Richard, we’re all from Bridgeport,
now we’re going to da penitentiary!”

Andy Plonka is T.H.U.G.!?
Nice rhymes. Make one about science teachers, won't need to change much. Someone's gotta spit the truth.
