lyrics

The Valley lies there dormant waiting for one man to lead
And in I ride upon my mighty proverbial steed
That gleam upon my teeth means satisfaction guaranteed
It's my rally
It's easy to be Mayor - give the people what they want
Health inspections waived for all your local restaurants
Yes, you can ask for anything, I'm this town's confidant

In Hill Valley
I pride myself in keeping these streets clean
Mayor Goldie
The Sherriff Bart of this municipality
Of Hill Valley
Integrity, Honesty, Decency
Mayor Goldie
All hail Mayor Goldie Wilson

My brothas have been kept down all throughout the 70's
So now I take the power from the Hill Valley Police
The homeless and graffiti could be a conversation piece
In a dark alley
Lou exclaimed "A colored Mayor! That'll be the day!"
Well, the results are coming in, it's Goldie all the way
How hard could it be to keep this town from disarray

In Hill Valley
I grew up here, I'm keeping my streets clean
Mayor Goldie
The Sherriff Bart of this municipality
Of Hill Valley
Integrity, Honesty, Decency
Mayor Goldie
All hail Mayor Goldie Wilson

My dear mom worked 40 years and got nowhere
The time has come to show the world that I'm somebody
And to think I'd still be a server
If it wasn't for that kid in the life preserver
Don't need your prayers
Cos I'm your mayor

Of Hill Valley
It won't be long 'fore we're out of money
Mayor Goldie
That clock tower is ancient history
In Hill Valley
Let's build a mall right by that ol' pine tree
Mayor Goldie
Today's a day that will live in infamy
Mayor Goldie
The very first day of my legacy
Mayor Goldie
All hail Mayor Goldie Wilson!
