It was just a matter of time for the sludge to fly in Bridgeport’s mayoral campaign, or in this case an ode to former felonious Mayor Joe Ganim who’s seeking a comeback against incumbent Bill Finch. Just Say No To Joe is making the rounds in political camps, titillating some, testing the sense of humor of others.

The anonymous source of the song credits Charlie The Bum as the creative mind behind it. Charlie was a musician, as the story goes, who took to the streets of Bridgeport more than 50 years ago suffering a broken heart.

If it’s all about that bass (or in political terms base) the singer of the ditty goes down-right low in cutting off Ganim’s cashews, lyrically speaking.

Well, he’s barely five foot three
He ain’t the biggest guy in town
But man, he’s got some onions
The biggest ones around

 

 

JUST SAY NO TO JOE

Are you people nuts?
Have you lost your mind?
Not long ago
This bum robbed you blind

So now he’s back
And he wants your vote
Wake up my friends
And just say no to Joe

Say no to Joe, adios my friend
See ya later, sayonara, goodbye again
Just take a hike, go on, hit the road
See you soon, so long, bye bye
Say no to Joe

I know, I know
He paid his debt
But there’s some things
You just cannot forget

So, shame on him
He fooled you once
Shame on you if you bring him back
And he fools you twice

Say no to Joe, adios my friend
See ya later, sayonara, goodbye again
Just take a hike, go on, hit the road
See you soon, so long, bye bye
Say no to Joe

Well, he’s barely five foot three
He ain’t the biggest guy in town
But man, he’s got some onions
The biggest ones around

Say no to Joe, adios my friend
See ya later, sayonara, goodbye again
Just take a hike, go on, hit the road
See you soon, so long, bye bye
Say no to Joe
See you soon, so long, bye bye
Say no to Joe
Wake up my friends
and just say no to Joe
