The City Mayor

(Tune: "Eleanor Rigby")

Ah, look at all the politicians
Ah, look at all the politicians

The city mayor talks to the press as if nothing were terribly wrong
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face that he wears for the voters outside
Thinks he can hide

All the politicians
Why must they always lie?
All the politicians
They make you want to cry

The city mayor writing the words of a speech that he thinks is enough
Playing his bluff
Look at him squirming, hoping the truth will not catch up and make him resign
Where is the sign?

All the politicians
Why must they always lie?
All the politicians
They make you want to cry
