Toronto Is On Fire

Here’s a nice little tune you can listen to as you admire your Rob Ford Valentines.

Here are the lyrics, as Written by Marc Coward and set to music by Jeremy Nichols.

By the way, when people can make a 4 minute song out of your misdeeds, it’s long past time to finish up your drink and go home.

Private subway, gravy train, Mark Towhey, Holyday
Deco Labels, Sue-Ann Levy, North Etobicoke
Nick Kouvalis, Mike Bendixen, OxyContin, @QueensQuayKaren
Nunziata, Mammoliti, Frank Di Giorgio

ACC F-bombs, “Wasn’t there,” “hatchet job”
Florida DUI, anger in the 905
Come to power, pipe dreams, up all night at Steak Queen
David Shiner, Mike Del Grande, Nakamura goodbye

Toronto is on fire
Three in ten believe him
So he keeps deceiving
Toronto is on fire
No we didn’t light it
But we’ve got to fight it

Broken promise service cuts, Savings claims are just nuts
Cusimano, campaign audit, communist plot
All-night marathon, budget math is dead wrong
Dead drop pick-ups in the parking lot

Read it in the Sun, love notes from Warmington
Karen kills the subway plan, Gary Webster gets canned
Radio BS fest, Cut the Waist is such a mess
Council’s strained, Doug’s unchained, someone call Kouvalis

Toronto is on fire
Three in ten believe him
So he keeps deceiving
Toronto is on fire
No we didn’t light it
But we’ve got to fight it

Daniel Dale incident, cops don’t buy his argument
Stupid casino drive, drops the ball on Woodbine Live
Staff abuse, late-night calls, wasted while at City Hall
Shiny new Escalade, still skips on the Pride parade

Peter Payman, fake name, MacIntyre, broken leg
Waterfront TO, Ferris wheel’s a no-go,
Court case, letterhead, out of office, back again,
15 Windsor, Bassos, buying drugs from Sandro

Toronto is on fire
Three in ten believe him
So he keeps deceiving
Toronto is on fire
No we didn’t light it
But we’ve got to fight it

New car and five grand, phone’s back in his hands,
Kipling, Dixon, wasted at the Garrison
Shitstorm in the media, crack video mania,
Price and Sandro, lead pipe beating Basso

Cessna in the sky, driving while drunk and high
TPS looks away, what else do I have to say?

Toronto is on fire
Three in ten believe him
So he keeps deceiving
Toronto is on fire
No we didn’t light it
But we’ve got to fight it

LCBO, KFC, robocalls for Ainslie
Zig Zags, Ziploc, Gatorade, and vodka
Dugga, hezza, methadone, more than enough at home
Drinking Iceberg in the park, Russian Price after dark

Danforth stupor DUI? Mysterious alibi
Veiled threats, Porter jets, bobbleheads, subway debts
MIA in the ice storm, “SoE means martial law”
Every year with him’s a chore, I can’t take another four

Toronto is on fire
Three in ten believe him
So he keeps deceiving
Toronto is on fire
Until he is gone
It will still burn on and on and on and on….
