REAPPORTIONMENT REARS UP AGAIN by Jane Rein'l (Dem Bones) Antiphonal Chorus
That map, that map, Gotta draw again That map, that map, Gotta draw again That map, that map, Gotta draw again Now hear the word of the law
Black folks connected to–black zones Chicanos connected to–Spanish zones Hopis disconnected from–Navazones Now hear the word of the law.
Democrats connected to–Dem zones Republicans connected to–Gop zones Incumbents connected to–own zones That ain't the word of the law
That map, that map, Gotta draw again That map, that map, Gotta draw again That map, that map, Gotta draw again Now hear the word of the law.
THE STREETS OF NORTH SCOTTSDALE by Beth Luey (to the tune of The Streets of Laredo)
As I wandered out on the streets of North Scottsdale As I wandered on in North Scottsdale one day, I spied an old yuppie all dressed in blue pinstripes, But his blue pinstripes had started to fray.
"I see by your outfit that you are a yuppie. I see by your suit and your power tie too. Come sit down beside me and tell your sad story. I've seen burnt-out cases but none quite like you."
"I was a PR man who pulled in big money From Lincoln and Keating and all of that crew. But all of a sudden, around 1990, All the bondholders decided to sue.
"Let bankruptcy lawyers come carry my coffin. Let six MBA's come and follow me down. Let all the accountants come balance my ledgers. And drive the stretch hearse through the best parts of town.
"So bang the drum slowly, and play the pipes lowly. Please scatter my ashes uptown at high noon. And take my suspenders to use for guitar strings. So you and your buddies can sing this sad tune."
Singalong: (repeat chorus)
