Jenny James' Rob Ford Song: Not All Musicians Hate RoFo, Apparently (VIDEO)

There have been so many anti-Rob Ford songs released since his crack video scandal erupted that we've made a full video slideshow of them (see below). But at long last, and just in time for tonight's 13th annual Ford Fest BBQ where it will be performed, a singer has come out in favour of Toronto's embattled "cost cowboy and rollback viceroy."

Jenny James, a Filipino-Canadian singer from Toronto who began singing at the age of five, has lit up social media with her 80s rock anthem praising RoFo -- "he's big and grand / On wasting people's money he takes a stand" -- despite the video including a photoshopped image of Ford in a crown with a crack-pipe in hand. (D'oh!)

As far as we can tell, James is dead serious no matter how satirical the hair metal song may seem. (Hell, we'll even assume the throwback sound is intended to mirror his rollback tax policies).

Songs Inspired By Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Mayor Ford (The World Will Remember)

(c) 2013 Jenny James, Brian Mann, Paul Chalmers, Sonia Watkins

Verse 1

Mayor Ford the tax payer's Lord

Toronto's own, our votes he won

He's big and grand

On wasting people's money he takes a stand

Verse 2

He's the money crusader

The excess cost eliminator

A big heart that always cares

A man who's fair and keeps things square

Chorus

Mayor Ford, cost cowboy and rollback viceroy

Toronto's defender, economic mender

Blatant attacks won't make him collapse

Cause Mayor Ford will bounce right back

Mayor Ford, the world will remember

Verse 3

We've seen tax and spend heroes before

Their fancy speeches, oh what a bore

They had their thrills and now we're forced to pay their bills

That's why we're sore

Verse 4

All the crazy accusations

Won't break apart the Ford Nation

He's the man who perseveres

His political mandate will adhere

Chorus

Mayor Ford, cost cowboy and rollback viceroy

Toronto's defender, economic mender

Blatant attacks won't make him collapse

Cause Mayor Ford will bounce right back

Mayor Ford, the world will remember

Guitar Solo...

Ending Chorus

Mayor Ford, cost cowboy and rollback viceroy

Toronto's defender, economic mender

Blatant attacks won't make him collapse

Cause Mayor Ford will bounce right back

Mayor Ford, the world will remember
