Mayor 1% - The Song

Don't resent Mayor One Percent
He's the guy lookin' out for you
From Lincoln Park down to Streeterville
Unless your collar's blue

MAYOR 1%

Chorus

Don't resent Mayor One Percent
He's the guy lookin' out for you
From Lincoln Park down to Streeterville
Unless your collar's blue

He's got the backs of Goldman Sachs
And JP Morgan, too
Mayor One Percent is quite content
To have a city that works for a few

Verse

Drinkin' wine in Montana
With Bruce and Diana
He's closing down neighborhood schools
We'll all go and see him
At the Star Wars Museum
When he rewrites the lakefront rules

His management duties
Get downgrades from Moody's
But his red-light camera fines
Will hammer the poor
And help to ensure
That downtown Chicago shines

Chorus

He gave a gym to DePaul
With a TIF basketball
While young kids have no place to play
Jukin' the crime stats
Strokin' the fat cats
As parts of the city decay

With a wink and a smile
He's on the Mag Mile
Taking checks from Gold Coast friends
And his V-neck sweater
Will make it all better
As the TV commercial ends

Chorus
