And James Trumm:

HERE'S TO THE STATE OF DONALD TRUMP
(Phil Ochs, altered by James Trumm)

Oh, here's to the state of Donald Trump
Where underneath his crazy hair the devil’s doing fine,
In the basements of his towers nameless bodies you will find,
And his tiny little fingers have committed many crimes,
And the calendar is lyin' when it reads the present time.

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,
Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!

And here's to the schools of Donald Trump
Where they're teachin' all the children that they don't have to care,
All the hatred of the immigrant is present everywhere,
They’ve whitewashed all the textbooks, no black people in there,
They’ve privatized the classroom -- such a foreign word as "fair."

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,
Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!

And here's to the laws of Donald Trump
Where waterboarding’s legal and they torture every day,
He’ll punish those reporters when he don’t like what they say,
He’ll build a wall with income tax that he didn’t have to pay,
Oh, corruption can be classic in the Donald Trumpish way.

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of.,
Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!

And here's to the churches of Donald Trump (and Franklin Graham).
Where the gospel of prosperity into their face is thrust,
And the Sunday mornin' sermons pander to their lust,
While the fallen face of Jesus is chokin' in the dust,
And Heaven only knows in which God they can trust.

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,
Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!

And here's to the government of Donald Trump
In the swamp of unreality they're always boggin' down,
And criminals are posing as advisors to the crown,
While the face of Lady Liberty is bent into a frown,
And the speeches of the candidate are the ravings of a clown.

Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,
Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!
