The Lyrics

Some people in the news are trying to explain their actions.
I take a knee every week on TV, I'm protesting
I say it's to stop all those shootings by cops, who am I jesting?
I lift up my eyes and I look to the stands
There's a sudden departure of NFL fans
Those butts in the seats have all sounded retreat, they're divesting

I'm a fat, ugly slob with a Hollywood job, I'm suggesting
You are going to go far, I can make you a star, bedroom testing
You acted all willing, now you cry phony tears
Over what I've been doing these past thirty years
In a town full of lechers and harlots and queers, I'm "molesting"

Last November I cried as a life-long dream died, end of questing
Every foundation gift, if you catch my drift, was "investing"
I've Russians to blame, and Russians to thank
But at least I can cry all the way to the bank
The evidence is clear, and I'm living in fear of arresting

Very well rhymed, with accurate messages. It's all good, particularly the "thank/bank" couplet.
