Lyrics


The feds investigated improprieties
somehow the mayor waltzed while all others took the heat
Then he was primaried by his protégé
With his head down he meekly shuffled away
and if you wondered how he spent all his free time
You can bet it wasn’t in a Conga line
Hand dancing
Some people his age are into macrame
But we know that hand dancing
does it for Vincent Gray

Rising from the dead he made a comeback bid
Fox-trotting throughout every inch of Ward 7
While Jeffrey Thompson bides his time inside the slammer
Vincent on weekends makes like MC Hammer
If Mr Hammer had 2 artificial hips
To help him with all his legal pirouettes
Hand Dancing
It’s not a euphemism on starting a slush fund
Though without Hand Dancing
Mayor Fenty might have won

The legal pirouettes and euphemism lines are really clever. I'm also assuming this is the re-done one - sounds great.

This is just the right kind of smart plus dumb, and I cannot stop laughing. You must have already re-done and posted the new version, cause this sounds great to me.
