lyrics

A TRUE DEMOCRACY
================

Now, 2016 was a crappy year
I think that we are in agreement here
And though many bit the dust
At least it wasn't us
And we're still putting music in your ear!

I've been elected the new mayor of Spintunes
The votes are counted and there's only one
But it's a vote for me
So I'm probably home-free
And I'll work to make this contest great again!

Hail, hail to Spintunes
All hail to thee
Hail, hail to Spintunes
A true Democracy!

When I take office I will make my mark
But you won't find the changes very stark
'cept you won't have to pander
If you're a Michigander
Like you have to with Spintown as your monarch

I'd like to keep our standards very high
That's why I will appoint Miss Cherry Pi
To ride herd on Orion Sound
And help him hold the cursing down
And keep him "occupied" if he should try

Hail, hail to Spintunes
All hail to thee
Hail, hail to Spintunes
A true Democracy!

This verse is here to flatter those who judge
I know their reputations have no smudge
But Zarni, Nick, and Joe,
And Teddy oughtta know
The check is in the mail if they should budge.

Hail, hail to Spintunes
All hail to thee
Hail, hail to Spintunes
A true Democracy!
