In Honour Of Rob Ford and #Fordict, A Song

Major hat tips to @zuzuhaha for starting the gears grinding (and no thanks for making me listen to the original to verify timing as best as possible) and crucial lines, as well as @sirilyan for another amazing couplet of lines…

People of Toronto, allow me to present a song in honour of tomorrow’s appeal ruling for (hopefully soon-to-be-ex-) Mayor Rob Ford.

Fordict (to the tune of Rebecca Black’s “Friday”)
*Wanna sing along? Instrumental of original at bottom!*

Seven a.m., waking up Friday morning
Gotta be fresh, gotta go to court
Gotta have my phone, gotta have my Tweetdeck
Hopin’ that it’s real: Rob’s time is ending
Tickin’ on and on, everybody’s Tweeting
Gotta go catch the TTC
Gotta catch my bus, I see my friends (My friends)

Kickin’ with the audit
Sittin’ with the conflict
Gotta place my bet on
Which trial ends his term!

It’s Fordict, Fordict!
Judges handin’ down the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to vacancy, empty seat!
Fordict, Fordict!
Rulin’ on the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Partyin’ partyin’ (Yeah!)
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah!)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin’ forward to the new mayor!

10:25, we’re chattin’ and refreshing
This hour’s too slow, I want time to fly
Ford, Ford, think about Ford
No longer in charge

I know this, you know this
Hackland got it right, hey!
I know this, you know this
Court, don’t blow it!

Clickin’ with the mouse
Cards make up Ford’s house
Gotta have justice
This trial ends his term!

It’s Fordict, Fordict!
Judges handin’ down the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to vacancy, empty seat!
Fordict, Fordict!
Rulin’ on the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Partyin’ partyin’ (Yeah!)
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah!)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin’ forward to the new mayor!

Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
Today i-is Friday, Friday (Partyin’)
We-we-we so excited
We so excited
We better have good news today

Tomorrow is Saturday
A new mayor comes after … wards
I don’t want this weekend to end

Ford’s Rap Cameo:
R-F, Robert Ford

Chillin’ in my SUV (In the front seat)
Drive while I read (In the front seat)
I’m drivin’, cruisin’ (Yeah, yeah)
Flip off drivin’ moms!
Wit’ a bike up on my side (Ew, Pinko!)
Passin’ by is a streetcar in front of me
Makes tick tock, tick tock, wanna scream
Lose my job, I don’t care, it’s a weekend
Gonna coach football, c’mon, c’mon, y’all

It’s Fordict, Fordict!
Judges handin’ down the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to vacancy, empty seat!
Fordict, Fordict!
Rulin’ on the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Partyin’ partyin’ (Yeah!)
Partyin’, partyin’ (Yeah!)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Lookin’ forward to the new mayor!

It’s Fordict, Fordict!
Page’s loading up the Fordict!
Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the ruling, ruling!
Fordict, Fordict!
Rulin’ on the Fordict!
Everybody’s hopeful that Toronto’s free now!

Biting nails, biting nails (Yeah!)
We drinkin’ regardless (Yeah!)
Fun, fun, fun, fun
Hoping Monday brings a new mayor!
