The Lyrics

After Donald Trump announced his Presidential candidacy with a few harsh words against Mexican immigrants, actress America Ferrera, late of Ugly Betty, fired back with her Huffington Post open letter to The Donald: "[Racist remarks] will only serve to rally more Latino voters to the polls. Your negativity and your poorly thought out speech ignited a fire in our community. Thank you, Mr. Trump!" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/america-ferrera/thank-you-donald-trump_b_7709126.html The quotes in the parody below are not necessarily direct quotes from Mr. Trump, Ms. Ferrera, or anyone else.
Oo, oo, oo, oo,
Oo-oo-oo-oops!
Oo, oo, oo, oo,
Oo-oo-oo-oops!

“Let me be President.
I’ll stop illegal imm’gration.
Mexican people are ruining this land!”
So he thought we bought his rhetoric.
He said a few choice words
And angered the actress America.

“Donald,” she wrote—
Ms. Ferrera, who played Ugly Betty—
“‘President Trump’ is a dread to me now.
Thank you for helping to spur the Latino vote!”
She signed, “Sincerely, America.”

Laughing at the Don,
Would-be savior to racists:
He said the Mexes were
Rapists and druggies and thieves.
Then Univision and NBC
Said, “Trump, you’re cancelled.”

“Turn on the TV set
For the Miss USA Pageant.”
“NBC cancelled that just weeks ago.”
The Apprentice has disappeared.
Can’t watch Miss Universe.
Now will Trump’s star rise over Fox-TV?

“Donald, you’ve lost,” we’ll say.
“What the hell were you thinking?
You’re empty and racist and—oh, yes—you’re fired!”
Counting on votes from Latinos and leftists,
We’ll all vote to side with America!
All vote with our own America!
All vote for our own America!

Nice match of melody and rhymes. The "You're fired" line is singularly appropriate. A good political parody.
