The Lyrics

(instrumental opening)

The Eastern States... they aren't buyin'
all the things about... which he's lyin'.
He's old enough to know... but isn't knowin'.
We shouldn't have let him in, and now he should be goin'.
In November we'll be votin', not Donald, we're Joe-in'
and I... tell you, over and over and over again, my friend
we now need relief, and we're on the Eve of De-Trump-tion!

Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say?
Trump gave us the fears that we're feelin' today.
All our buttons he's pushed, let's throw him away.
It's our country we must save, or we'll land in the grave.
Take a look around you, boy: He treats us like a toy
and I... tell you, over and over and over again, my friend
yeah, he gives us grief, but we're on the Eve of De-Trump-tion!

(harmonica solo)

Yeah, he's gone so mad, he needs congratulation.
I'm sittin' here, watchin' him gesticulatin'.
He can't tell the truth, he hates all regulation.
A handful of Senators saved his Administration.
So let's march to the polls, deny him re-election.
For human respect, we must give him rejection.
This whole crazy world wants to remove this infection.
And I... tell you, over and over and over again, my friend
he's a traitor thief, but we're on the Eve of De-Trump-tion!

(harmonica solo)

Think of all the trade he's messed up with China.
Think of the Sharpie he used on Alabama.
Inside his head, there's way too much space.
Coronavirus deaths all over the place.
The pounding of his fist, his pride, a disgrace.
We can bury his plans, and not leave a trace.
And then next year, neighbor, we'll restore our country's grace
and I... tell you, over and over and over and over again, my friend
we can bring relief, we're on the Eve of De-Trump-tion!

Yes, let's bring relief, we're on the Eve of De-Trump-tion!

(harmonica close)
I was tempted to use "This whole crazy world would have an erection," but I wanted to post this on platforms where people I know with sensitive sensibilities would see it.

So many weeks of parodies to catch up on. Haven't seen Facebook in over a month. Eve of Destruction is one of my favorite songs. Somehow it always remains timely. I just don't see anyone getting excited about Joe Biden. His selection of a running mate is going to be one of the most critical political stories of the year. Consensus on the right is that Biden will abdicate and turn over the WH to his chosen successor. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama or ?

Two years later, gasoline is triple, we're at war with Russia, and nobody can afford to eat. Three-fer as vice president. I don't know if you look back, but Trump is starting to look mighty good to me.

Oh, you would prefer a totalitarian regime, Patty? Move to Russia.
