The Lyrics

While the original 1968 "Joke" lyrics generally are well suited to the 2016 Republican National Convention, the Trumpence lyrics below are specific notes on the outcome of the Convention
I barged into their game, the game they call politics
But I did not foresee that they all would hate me, oh no

I entered their race, and found that their base really loves me
But while that base is enthralled, the rest still act appalled

I chose Mike Pence, though I really wanted John Kasich
But as it would be, John did not really like me

I united their delegates, in their mass hatred of Hillary
But many otherwise won’t agree with their orange nominee

Exploiting fear and rage, from my place on this stage
Melania was punked, the media coverage stunk, Cruz showed his rump

I’m in this race, and I have never been a loser
But if that should change, Mike Pence will be blamed

We’ll have law and order, and more jobs for our miners
In a nation like Gotham, Donald is your Batman and Ivanka can be Robin

I’m in this race, and I have never been a loser
But if that should change, Mike Pence will be blamed, for sure
