Londonderry Air(all-purpose ruin-a-song game)

This thread is for effing up a song in ways other than the one-word rhyme prescribed by the other thread. Rules basically the same as the make-something-vegan game: anything goes, as long as it sounds recognizably like the original. (And simple rhymes should be kept on the original thread.)

So, to start with something biblical, for Kings fans...

You're Halving My Baby

    I knew about the ribald mishearing long before I knew that the real words were something else.

    But it wasn't until yesterday, researching the song for this thread, that I found out it was the same song as Danny Boy.

    Aside from any anti-colonialist agenda, I can understand why the "Irish" version of the song has become the standard.

    To the tune of "Windy"

    What's pulling yuppies out of the city
    Out to the suburbs, whiter than air?
    Nixing a bus route, canceling group-homes?
    Everyone knows it's...NIMBY!

    'Cuz NIMBY keeps property
    As high as the rates can be.
    And NIMBY keeps poverty
    Away from me
    Away from me
    Away from meeee!

    We once stayed in a hotel where a local group entertained us with the song ‘No vermin no cry’.
