What I’m Listening to: Glass Animals – Helium (and Taylor Swift – obvs)

What I’m Reading: Just finished The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller


Inspired by recent “Taylor’s Versions,” I thought “22” needed a #LocalGov version, especially as we kick off our own year of ‘22! Hum along and let me know what lyrics you’d add @RealMaggieJones.

It feels like a perfect Tuesday

To go to Council

And get that action item passed

Ah-ah, ah-ah

It feels like a perfect Tuesday

For breakfast on the run

So grab your coffee at the drive-thru

Ah-ah, ah-ah

Yeah, we’re happy, stressed, politically astute and hopeful at the same time

It’s unpredictable and messy but still fun, oh yeah

Tonight’s the night when we (finally) pass that action plan

It’s 7:00 PM, oh-oh

I don’t know about you

But I’m feeling 20-22

Everything will be alright if

Council doesn’t change their minds

You don’t know about me

But I’ve got anxiety

That item will pass if

You just hold your breath like it’s 20-22

It seems like one of those nights

Chambers sure is crowded

Too many people on NextDoor

(What’s a public servant anyway?) Ah-ah, ah-ah

It seems like one of those nights

We forgot the public hearing

And end up screamin’ instead of leavin’, yeah

Yeah, we’re happy, stressed, politically astute and hopeful at the same time

It’s unpredictable and messy but still fun, oh yeah

Tonight’s the night when we have lots of citizen comments

It’s time, oh-oh

I don’t know about you

But I’m feeling 20-22

Everything will be alright if

Council doesn’t change their minds

You don’t know about me

But I’ve got anxiety

That item will pass if

You just hold your breath like it’s 20-22 (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

It feels like one of those Tuesdays

We go for hours

It feels like one of those Tuesdays

We won’t be sleeping

It feels like one of those Tuesdays

You look a little bit frazzled

But it’s going to be OK

But it’s going to be OK

Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

I don’t know about you

But I’m feeling 20-22

Everything will be alright if (Ooh)

Council doesn’t change their minds

You don’t know about me

But I’ve got anxiety

Everything will be alright if

Council doesn’t change their minds

20-22 (Hopeful like)

20-22 (Yeah, yeah)

20-22 (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

It feels like a perfect Tuesday

To go to Council

It feels like a perfect Tuesday

And get that action item passed

It feels like a perfect Tuesday

We’re gonna make it

We did it yeah!

We did it yeah!
