Taken for a Ride or The Ambulance Song

Shandro, Kenney, What are we going to do?

You’re not listening to anyone else but you!

It’s rare to see our Mayors

United as team players

We must confess

This dispatch mess

Is not looking good on you.

Shandro, Kenney, Listen to what we say

Else with their lives, people are going to pay!

When 911’s together,

The outcomes are much better

The data shows, the facts we know,

So stop your bullying ways.

Shandro, Kenney, no need to use your phone

The am-bu-lance is fine in its current home (the dashes reflect the rhythm to fit this in perfectly)

Our dispatch is not broken

The savings are just token

So you’ll look sweet the day you tweet

You’re just leaving it alone!

Shandro, Kenney, give us your answer do

We’re still waiting for logic to come from you

This plan’s a bit of a bummer

Kind of like Dumb and Dumber

So Grans suggest, end this distress 

By ditching this plan, and soon!
