Tune: Daisy, Daisy
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!
