A reader who attended tonight’s holiday party for City Hall staffers at Gracie Mansion sent over the first verse of the song performed by “Mike Bloomsteen and the Bullpen Band,” sung to the tune of Born to Run (which these commenters didn’t guess).
Here it goes, and notice the not-so-suggestive hints at 2008.
I was born a long long time ago
And became an Eagle Scout.
And then John Hopkins accepted him
Which they’re still happy about.
Harvard grad-then Wall Street pro.
Got fired, opened a company, made big dough.
Two term mayor, so serene
Then I read New York magazine.
I say ‘Next stop-Washington!’
cause folks like us,
Baby we were born to run.
More information, and (hopefully) pictures to come later.
