Candy Wants an Encore!

One of the Bragg Jam shows Mom missed because she was busy showering off the sweat from the Arts & Kids and helping Shuga D unload coolers from the truck was the stellar and much-talked about kick-off performance of the “Rabbi and Friends” at the Hummingbird. Not only did Mayor Robert Reichert duet “Blowing in the Wind” with City Councilman and “the Rabbi” Larry Schlesinger, but Councilwoman Nancy White joined the stage for a rousing performance of “Everybody Must Get Stoned.” Here are the “modified” lyrics:


EVERYDAY SERVANTS #12 & 35


They'll stone you when you’re tryin’ to be so good.

They'll stone you just like you knew they would.

They’ll stone you when they’re idlin’ the cars.

They’ll stone you when massagin’ goes too far.

But we would not feel so all alone,

City Councils must get stoned.

They’ll stone you when there’s garbage in the street.

They’ll stone you when a park’s not nice & neat.

They’ll stone you when you’re tryin’ to walk the dog.

They’ll stone you when you’re not at City Hall.

But we would not feel so all alone,

City Councils must get stoned.

They'll stone you when you’re ‘round the Council table.

They'll stone you when they know you’re bright and able.

They'll stone you when you’re spendin’ city bucks.

They'll stone you and then they'll call Chris Krok,

But we would not feel so all alone,

City Councils must get stoned.

They’ll stone you when you try to annex land.

They’ll stone you when you lend a helpin' hand.

They’ll stone you when the homeless are around.

They’ll stone you when Bragg Jam takes over town.

But we would not feel so all alone,

City Councils must get stoned.

They’ll stone you and they’ll say that it’s your end.

They’ll stone you but they'll seek your vote again.

They'll stone you and then say that you are brave.

They'll stone you when you’re diggin' your own grave.

But we would not feel so all alone,

City Councils must get stoned.
