Rob Ford, the opera

Chris from the CBC sez, "CBC Radio's Day 6 enlisted Topher Mokrzewski of the Canadian Opera Company to write and arrange an operatic aria sung from the perspective of Mayor Rob Ford, adapted from Bizet's Carmen. Comes with a video gallery of great Ford photos."

Yes it's me, I'm still the Ford you knew, still just the same old chap who'd not smoke crack with you.
Hail from Etobicoke, not in that video.
I still yearn to coach the kids at Don Bosco.

Pillar of that quiet society, the vast majority who'd see on bended knee,
Those lazy, soft elites, who rule on Bay Street, they who all believe the media conspiracy!

Wait! You've heard Chief Bill Blair, it's absurd, it's just that paper's way to make a fool of me.
They detest the stand I take for you.
I'm the man you chose to see things through.
Ah no, they can't, they won't remove me from here.

Listen: The Rob Ford Opera (Thanks, Chris!)
