The Lyrics

Hard to know about the days to come—
“F**king disaster!” “Great!” each side will say.
And we wonder where we’ll be four years from now—
better or worse off than we are today.

Inauguration, inauguration
will make all things “great”—
just how, though, is hazy.

One side will decry what they say is a weasly crew,
citing examples of perfidy.
The other side says things will turn out right,
though their proof’s less than slight, bordering on fantasy.

Inauguration, inauguration
will make US “great”
again—how, though’s, hazy.

In time, results will be easy to measure;
for now, prophesying’s a partisan play.
But right now, each side is sticking to its vows.
What will happen past inauguration day,
to us in USA?
Oh, for the good old days!
How are things gonna play?
We’re gonna know some day.
And pretty soon, I’d say.
