"Trumpin' with Gumption"

Parody Written by:

Lionel Mertens

The Lyrics

TRUMPIN’ with GUMPTION is TRUMPTION
You gotta do somethin’
If you’re gonna beat the streets
IMPULSE and ACTION makes IMPACTIONS
You gotta have passion
If you wanna see the suite

I’m not tryin’ to be “The Donald”
‘Cause that Mogul is too smart for me, hmmm….
I’m not tryin’ to take his title
‘Cause “The Lionel” is too dumb you see, yeah

Mining the miners makes money
And he's no dummy
Believe you me
Won’t you salute to “The Donald”
He’s a General at his university, yeah
Yes, he is

[Instrumental Interlude]

TRUMPIN’ with GUMPTION is TRUMPTION
You gotta do somethin’
If you’re gonna beat the streets
TRAINING in ACTION makes TRACTION
You gotta have passion
If you wanna see the suite


You gotta do somethin’
If you’re gonna beat the streets
You gotta do somethin’ boy
If you wanna see the suite
