With apologies to W. C. Handy:

Mr. Bloomberg Don’t Like It

Mistah Bloomberg don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
Mistah Bloomberg don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
Mistah Bloomberg don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
No fat poor people, Lord, waddlin’ ‘round here
Mistah Bloomberg don't like it, ain't gonna have it here

I saw the West Side yuppies jump up and shout
I saw the West Side yuppies jump up and shout
I saw the West Side yuppies jump’ up and shout
Brother, I'm so glad those Big Gulps are out
Mistah Bloomberg don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
Stefan: Thank you for this memory. I surprised myself by singing the words right on tune with Satchmo. "and I say to myself, what a wonderful world"..
I like these lightsome breaks from the bleakness of today's Noise which blasts out of many stores I go into. No rest for the weary...Thanks again...
Great. Louis will send his sympathy from heaven, where all kinds of pleasures are encouraged.
