Win this thing

Nancy Hall and Lee Parvin of the Curios wrote this song about Measure L and how charismatic Miami high-rise developer R. Donahue Peebles has attempted to sell it to Pacifica.

He came waltzing into our town
With his honey and his milk
His tongue was made of silver and
His tie was made of silk

But he just feeds my revolution
We're never gonna be the same
I found my solution
We gotta win this thing
And then we gotta change the game
And then we gotta heal some pain
If we'll ever have peace again...

He tried to rock me like a baby
Like some naive little girl
He opened up his wallet and
He promised us the world

But he just feeds my revolution
We're never gonna be the same
I found my solution
We gotta win this thing
And then we gotta change the game
And then we gotta heal some pain
If we'll ever have peace again...

We're going to line up at the voting box
With our skepticism intact
And send Miami packing without ever looking back

But he just feeds my revolution
We're never gonna be the same
I found my solution
We gotta win this thing
And then we gotta change the game
And then we gotta heal some pain
If we'll ever have peace again...

I don't know how many local land-use battles inspire original songs. But Pacificans are passionate about our funky little city by the sea. Of course someone who's never lived here would find that hard to understand.
