songs for Trump

Quote, rewrite, paraphrase songs about the Idiot In Chief

You never turned around to see the frowns
On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people [commit your crimes] for you

Ahh princess on a steeple and all the pretty people
They're all drinking, thinking that they've got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you better take your diamond ring, you better pawn it babe

How does it feel? To be going down.

Yes, I received your [transcript] yesterday, about the time the doorknob broke
When you asked me how I was doing [as President] , was that some kind of joke
All these people that [I hired], yes, I know them, they're quite [criminal]
I had to rearrange their faces and give them all another name

Trump sings No Tears Left To Cry.
"Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position."
"Yes, but that isn't just saying 'No, it isn't!'"
"Yes, it is!"
"No, it isn't!"

Richard Thompson - "Fergus Laing"

It's so obviously about Trump...
"We can all sink or we all float
'Cuz we're all in the same big boat"

Feelin’ better soon you'll be through
Feelin’ better we'll be done with you
I learned my lesson, it left a scar
My vote showed me how you really are
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Donald you're no good

I'm gonna say it again
You're no good
You're no good
You're no good
Donald you're no good

I broke the norms, democracy too
Well my vote abused rule of law’s residue
I'll hope for forgiveness on bended knee
I wouldn't blame you if you said to me

“You’re no good
Your vote could
Wreck this hood
Voting Trump's no good.”

Night after night,
Fiendin' to tweet,
The ass with a smarmy mug is keeping perfectly discrete.

Nobody wants to i-view him.
They can see that he's just a tool.
Cause he never gives an answer.

Cause the fool on the hill.
Having fun, gaining pounds.
Helping Vlad run the show.
While Stephen Miller makes the rounds.

Well on the way,
Half way through a hamberder,
The oaf with a thousand fake tans spewing perfectly berseker. (right - sue me if some of this shit doesn't scan all peachy)

But none of his base seems to notice,
They can see he's not a fool,
And he never shows his taxes...

Cause the dotard on the hill,
Sees the Proles going down,
And the McDee's that he maowed
In his gut, spinning round.

Wonder this time when he's gone
Wonder if he's gone to stay
So much sunshine when he's gone
The white house just ain't his home
When is he goin' away ?

I am sure that Lou Reed's Dirt is about him. It goes like this:
It's been a long time since I've been spoken to you
Was it the right time?
Your current troubles and you know they'll get much worse
I hope you know how much I enjoyed them
You're a pig of a person, there's a justice in this world
Hey, how about that?
Your lack of conscience and your lack of morality
Well, more and more people know all about it
We sat around the other night, me and the guys,
Trying to find the right word
That would best fit and describe you and people like you
That no principle has touched no principles baptized
How about that?
Who'd eat shit and say it tasted good
If there was some money in it for him
You're just dirt
You're just dirt, The only word for you is dirt
That's all you're worth - cheap, cheap dirt
You know they call it -
Cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap, uptown dirt
you're just - cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap, uptown dirt

And that is just the start
How happy many people could be if they only cared about other people's business as little as they care about their own! - Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

He's not really worth the effort so I'll just imagine rewriting ALLEY OOP with a name change.

Largest orange on record, well over 19 stone.
What a whole lotta idjit, a whole lotta idjit,
A whole lotta POTUS, a whole lotta POTUS,
A whole lotta PO PO PO PO PO PO POTUS NO!

When I come home, baby
And I've been lyin' all night long
I put my daughter on my knee
And she says, "Donny what's wrong?"
She whispers in my ear so sweet
You know what she says?

She says, "Ooh, Donny, you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
And it makes me wonder why
Donny, you're a fool"

I don't have to bend this one at all ("Witch Hunt", by Rush):

They say there are strangers who threaten us
Our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness to danger us
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
That those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand

Don, you fat fuck
Dude, you absolutely suck
Gonna shut down the government
Just because.

Ya got cheese in your veins
Affecting your brain
Might as well end it and save us the pain.



Pretend-ride a truck
Wow, what a sorry fuck
You know ya look like a toddler that's
Always stuck.

Vlad's pinky is you
Helsinki taboo
Nato can suck it and the USA too.


V.O.V.O.D.* X2

Watchin Fox News
For your presidential views
Because you can't form a thought
Without turning blue.

Ya got blood on your hands
Your future plans:
A lien on Mar-a-Lago once they give you the can.


V.O.V.O.D. X2

*Aw wick-ked.......almost Voivod.
