Legend Elton John Writes Tribute Song to Former GOP Councilmen

In light of the recent events surrounding the decision on part of the Middletown Republican Town Committee not to endorse two incumbent Councilmen for reelection, legendary singer song writer Elton John stopped by the Insider and wrote a special tribute to the councilmen. The Grammy winner stated this was a new original piece, but it feels like we have heard this melody somewhere before.

Goodbye Phil and Joe

Goodbye Phil and Joe
Though yous should have left long ago
Yous retired as cops, then gave it another shot
Always playing  nice guys who got the top slots
But in your eyes, the GOP tried to bring you down
So yous started on the bipartisan path
And they made you change your dream

And it seems to us, yous lived your lives
Playing ‘yesmen’ in the end
Never knowing who to listen to
When the facts came in
And we would have liked to have understood your logic
But we never will know
Why your party loyalty burned out long before
Your council term ever did

Goodbye Phil and Joe
The GOP created a super slate, but teamwork was the price you paid
When you sold out for pats on the head
Oh but how the Dem’s still betrayed you
And the committee  had to say
Was that Joe and Phil were gone for good
At the end of the day

And it seems to us yous lived your lives
Playing ‘yesmen’ in the end
Never knowing who to listen to
When the facts came in
And we would have liked to have seen your logic
But we never will know
Because your sense of teamwork took a dive right before
Your cooperation ultimately did

Goodbye Phil and Joe
The China trip was all a a freakin’ sham
You praised the boy mayor
And said no problem!  five grand for dim sam
"It's a good way spend taxpayer public monies"
“It’s for the lil’ children excuses” have echoed on long before
The recovery of your lost conservative values ever will

Goodbye Phil and Joe
Baggin your fellow officials to the press is a no no
Claiming only yous twos cares about people is far from true
Bipartisanship is about compromise not giving in
Praising poor judgement, Dannyboy Drew’s lying ways
Having  secret chitty chats with Tommy, always being a no show
Makes people who put yous in office ‘touchy’ at the end of the day

And it seems to us yous lived your lives
Playing ‘yesmen’ in the end
Never knowing it’s your own people are who to listen to
When the facts come in
And we would have liked to have heard that voice in them heads of yours
But we never will know
How your concern for wasteful spending went down the pipes before
Your tenure as minority Grand Poobahas kinda did

Goodbye Phil and Joe
You let the "girls" write a decent budget
Then bagged the proposal on the floor
You endorsed Matty Lesser 'n' hiked up taxes
Joining departments creates more waste 'n' doesn’t add up
Them "girls" always had more balls then yous before
The GOP got it together taking the axes like they did

Goodbye Phil and Joe
From the local GOP
Stop listening to your faulty consciences, 
Maybe the D’s will pick yous up
And let yous play with them
Course that’s hard to say how far you’ll go
To please Zippy and Ol’ Godfather Joe

And it seems to us, yous lived your lives
Playing ‘yesmen’ in the end
Always listening to your misguided consciences
Even when the facts came in

And we would have liked to have understood your logic
But we never will
Your apprehension to grasp reality came out to stay long before
Your realization that the end is here ever will
