Bard of Hoboken recasts Hoboken Pie

American Pie a classic musical anthem has been recast by the Bard of Hoboken. The above youtube generated some new lyrics brought to you by Kurt Gardiner of the Hoboken Journal.

Apparently, these new lyrics were inspired by the sawdust master of punditry, the poster plywood.

You gotta love this town.

Here are the new lyrics brought to you by the Bard of Hoboken:

Bye Bye Ms. Develop or Die!:
A long long time ago
I can still remember
How that high rises used to make her smile
And I knew if she had her chance
That she could make those developers dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while
But D variances made me shiver
With every favor she’d deliver
Bad news to the taxpayer
She couldn’t take not being Mayor
I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about yet another bribe
But something touched her deep inside
The day that development died.

So bye bye “Ms. Develop or Die!”:
Ran her campaign with the Russos but the levee was dry
And them developers were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing this’ll be the day that we’ll die
This’ll be the day that we’ll die

The Hoboken Journal has added a second verse courtesy of another reader here:
