Hoboken Jingle Bells!

12/12/2008:

A Hoboken411 reader sends another painfully pleasant song parody about the malfeasance in Hoboken (artwork by yours truly!)

“Jingle Bells Roberts Smells…”

Hoboken Jingle Bells NotesVerse 1:
Roberts spewing snow,
In a one-paper town slanted his way,
O’er the threshold we go,
Spending happily and gay,
Taxes up and it’s discouraging,
Making Hoboken feel much blight,
Now Judy Tripodi has come in
And will hopefully make it alright.

Chorus:
Oh Jingle bells, Roberts smells,
Is our Mayor Gay?,
Oh! what joy it is to tax and spend
With patronage gone astray.
Jingle bells, Roberts smells,
Davey likes pay to play;
Oh! what joy it is to tax and spend
And give it all away.

Verse 2:
This last summer ago,
Davey went to Mantoloking to take a ride,
And soon that Captain “Stick”
Was driving by his side,
The limo was long and stank;
Overspending seemed his lot,
He ran out of money in the bank,
And then he got up sot.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Some Civil servants don’t show for work,
The story I must tell,
They take advantage of a feckless jerk,
And dry up the tax payer well;
The spending and waste oh my oh my,
The cover-ups for years lead to this doomsday,
His administration is one big lie,
Vote the bum out and drive him the f*ck away.

[quote comment=”122828″]No offence whatsoever. was just making snide comments about lumping the mayor in with any group. The cheese should stand alone. :)[/quote]
And he does stand alone. You might find this funny to hear but I do not dislike him personally. I find him to be a tragic figure who is in over his head and just can’t manage the City. His $1600 ads full of spin enrage me however and I thought it was just me I might let it go. Many are outraged at the Audacity of his Hype. I try to seperate the man from the politics but it is hard sometimes.

I know my poems are sharp in their sting at times but I remember an interview with Peter Cammarano who was on Roberts 2005 ticket against Marsh where he was discussing the dirty campaign tricks they used to assasinate her character. This is a paraphrase but he basically said that is a part of the process. Chickens are comming home to roost now Peter Cam. and Davey Boy!
