Bill de Blasio celebrated his landslide victory in Park Slope Tuesday evening to the tune of Lorde's "Royals," a song choice that further proves the mayor-elect is the hippest dad and politician in town.
The song pairs well with de Blasio's "Tale of Two Cities" narrative, and could be interpreted as a small dig at our current billionaire mayor. Bloomberg and de Blasio aren't necessarily the biggest fans of each other, to say the least.
I've never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I'm not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy
But every song's like:
Tripping in the bathroom
Trashing the hotel room
And we'll never be royals (royals)
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler)
You can call me queen bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule
Let me live that fantasy
