The Lyrics

First we get on your TV
Fiddle with reality
Thinking that you won't suspect
We'll misdirect, misdirect, misdirect!

What we say at our press meetin'
Ain't what Donald has been tweetin'
Everybody say a dys-
Topian dictatorship
Usin' alternative facts.

There on camera, you'll see Kelly-Anne
With distortions, Machiavellian
What they say has one impediment:
Contradicted by the president
What could be more imprecise, a
Briefing from press sec. Sean Spicer?
Two, four, six, eight,
Bamboozle and obfuscate

So when you watch your TV
We've tweaked your reality
So people won't recollect
We misdirect, misdirect, misdirect!

So much is misrepresented
Totally unpresidented
I'm not a liar
Look, your pants on fire
Not an affirmative
Usin' alternative facts!
