Black and Blues

Here's a new song, "Cathie Black", sung to the tune of "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones.

I'm your new "chancellor" and they call me Cathie Black.
I'm not an educator, just a corporate hack.
I'm here to lay you off and take your rights away,
U rated? ATRs? You'd better start to pray!

I see a high school and I want to see it shuttered,
The PEP will side with me, they know where their bread's buttered.
I'll shut down schools while doing crosswords on my phone,
Or check out sex positions while you bitch and moan!

Class overcrowding seems to me a real no-brainer.
Just put a condom on your paramour's John Boehner.
I'll steal your perks, your rights, your pensions, and the like,
Then belt some champagne down with my friend Mayor Mike!

If you want changes then I think that you should know,
I'm little more than a blond Joel Klein 2.0.
You say you want to take your old school system back?
You have no "Sophie's Choice"; you're stuck with Cathie Black!

(Fade to chorus, with band singing "Booooo" while Cathie sings "Ohhhhh!)
