Subject: Lyr Req: Trump songs
From: GUEST,Phil
Date: 13 Dec 15 - 07:58 PM

there was a somewhat off topic discussion of Donald Trump's current campaign on a facebook page celebrating Phil Ochs --- so now I'm looking for songs based on any of Trump's exploits

existent or newly penned lyrics welcome (take this as a song challenge if you wish)

BEHIND BLUE EYES
No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the mad man
Behind trump eyes
And no one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated to telling only lies
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my golf course seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free
No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my hotels seem to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free
No one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
An no…

There is a song out there called something like Donald Trump Murdered John Prine. Someone sang it at the virtual fox valley folklore society song circle a couple months back. And I think someone said they found a link to it on youtube.

These songs will seem less relevant in a week. I usually leave out two verses when I sing it, since it is a bit long.

Before Mexico pays for the wall

I don't claim to be an astronomer,
But I'm sure that the stars will fall,
And I will win a Nobel prize,
Before Mexico pays for the wall

It's clear that the climate is changing,
Winters now seem more like fall,
But I know that Hell will freeze over,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    CHORUS
We all have wished for something we want,
Money , good looks, or good health,
But if trump is as rich as he says he is,
He can pay for the wall himself.

I've never been very athletic,
I can't run much faster than a crawl,
But I'll win an Olympic Gold medal,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

I know I'm not much of a singer,
My voice might make your skin crawl,
But I'm sure that I'll win a Grammy,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    Chorus

Shakespeare said all the world is a stage,
And that we are players all,
And I'll have an armful of Oscars,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

I'm not an ornithologist,
I can't ID bird calls,
But I will fly like an Eagle,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    Chorus

We should not be governed by hubris,
Pride goeth before a fall,
But driven by vanity, goaded by Hannity,
TRump wants us to pay for his wall.

TRump claimed he would balance the budget,
He hasn't and he never will,
China will finance his spending,
And our grandkids will inherit the bill.

We all have wished for something we want,
Money , good looks, AND good health,
But if TRump is so rich, that son of a bitch,
Can pay for the wall himself.

You can hear it (poorly sung) on my YouTube channel

Rake, Rake, Rake

Intro: A little more than two years ago, Northern California was under a heavy pall of smoke, but that was nothing compared to the suffering of our friends and relatives and neighbors who lost everything in one of the big wildfires. A little while later, our dear leader came to Butte County to show just how much empathy he's capable of, and to share his vast knowledge of how to prevent more wildfires. I thought his wisdom should be set to music--using that term very loosely.

CHORUS
    (So) Rake, Rake, Rake the forest clean,
    Make it the cleanest forest floor you've ever seen,
    Rake it to bare earth, to keep the forests green,
    Rake, Rake, Rake the forest clean.

California is on fire, I need someone to blame,
If the earth should shake and quake, my response would be the same,
Paradise or Pleasure, who cares about the name,
Everything is politics, that's my only game,

BRIDGE
    I'm a forest fire expert, just ask me,
    Though I don't know which end's which on a Pulaski,
    I just blurt what's in my head, then I don't know what I
    said,
    And, I've never seen the forest for the trees.

I cut from Forest management, to spend more on defense,
Not defense of people's homes, that would make way too much sense,
I don't believe in climate change, and I am proud to be so dense,
That's why the right-wing kooks have so much confidence.

    [Chorus]

California lets some river water run out to the sea,
It seems like such a waste to let it follow gravity,
It ends up getting salty, and full of salmon pee,
It would be a better use to dump it all on golf club greens.

    [Chorus]

Hearable on YouTube

How many of you have ever sung about salmon pee??? A Pulaski???

This is not just about trump, but you might notice a reference to one of his most infamous statements. There is a verse admonishing the ladies to do the right thing, but I can't find it at the moment.

Keep It In Your Pants

It's not pleasant to discuss this, but I really think I must,
You know there are some famous men, we thought that we could trust,
Men of wealth and stature that seemed to have good sense,
But we know now, they don't know how, to keep it in their pants.

CHORUS
    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    But we know now, they don't know how, to keep it in their pants.

When you're the boss of someone, and you think you'll have your way,
The power is not balanced , there are no shades of gray,
You think she's so impressed with you, she'll welcome your advance,
But when in doubt, don't whip it out, just keep it in your pants

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    When in doubt, don't whip it out, just keep it in your pants

Don't grab 'em by the pussy, don't pat 'em on the butt,
Just think how you would feel if someone grabbed you by the nuts,
Keep your privates private, don't act like a dunce
Take a tip, keep it zipped, just keep it in your pants

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    Take a tip, keep it zipped, just keep it in your pants

When You meet a lovely lady, and you hope you can connect,
You've got a better chance, if you treat her with respect,
If the lady you are wooing doesn't welcome your advance,
If uninvited, not requited, just keep it in your pants.

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    If uninvited, not requited, just keep it in your pants.

And there's a special situation, that's got a Scottish lilt,
Would all you Highland laddies, please keep it in your kilt,
Keep it in your kilt, lads, keep it in your kilt,
Would all you Highland laddies, please keep it in your kilt.
