The Lyrics

In a world gone increasingly mad, where the law is treated as a joke, where The Almighty Dollar is threatened by unbridled nationalism, a legend will return from obscurity and bring forth a new era or silly, and by opposing, end the slings and arrows of outrageous insanity.

Trailer aside, I suppose you're wondering where I've been these past couple of years. Truth is, I had abandoned parody writing in favor of writing fiction. It's been fun, but it's grown increasingly less fun because of various limitations (e.g., time, money, etc...) Also, I simply have too many ideas for stories and not enough time to write them all. Parodies, I find, take less time to write. Besides, considering recent events, I just had to come back. You know me, I don't do political parodies, but this concept was too good to pass up. Anyways, enjoy the parody, and my triumphant comeback!
The voting halls are empty now,
(The ballots shine no more)
And so we’ve hit an all-time low.
(Turning, turning, turning)
A song that’s stuck inside my mind,
(The echoes of the nighttime)
Of everything that has just died
In my blue world.

I turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

Turn to stone,
Will the rain be gone?
I can’t go on.

The dying embers of my hope,
(It’s always dark before the dawn)
Can only be fanned by the Pope.
(Turning, turning, turning)
I’m tired of this lunacy,
(From here to everywhere it shows)
I’ll soon become a detainee
In my blue world.

I turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

Turn to stone,
Will the rain be gone?
I can’t go on.

Turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

Yes, I’m turning to stone ‘cause Trump just took the throne.
Why did he take the throne and not some complete unknown?
All the complete unknowns, they could do us no wrong.
Yet I’m turning…
I’m turning…
I’M TURNING TO STONE!

The dancing people in the street
(Because of Hillary’s defeat)
And all the sergeant’s peppers are all gone.
(Turning, turning, turning)
Though I just tried to have my say,
(I turn to stone, I turn to stone)
Hope never dies or fades away
From my blue world.

I turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

Turn to stone,
Will the rain be gone?
I can’t go on.

Turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

I turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

Turn to stone,
Will the rain be gone?
I can’t go on.

Turn to stone,
Trump took the throne,
I turn to stone.

I am furious that Trump won. Everyone else is glad that they do not have a woman president. :(((((((

2LD4U, there were no women in the whole of the DNC you could have run who was not a crook? Give us a candidate we can vote for and we MIGHT, Give us one we must vote against and we WILL. just sayin'

Nobody, not even the majority of women voters, wanted to elect such a pathological liar and fraud as Hillary Rodham Clinton who maintained a sixty percent unfavorable rating throughout the election. Others simply didn't want so obvious an establishment candidate who pandered to Wall Street. Even one with an Obama agenda. How could Hillary ever relate to ordinary women living in this century? When the Clintons need cash, they give a speech and take in hundreds of thousands of dollars. The average stay at home mom with at least two kids and one working man has to make do on thirty-three thousand dollars or less per year. Other women live in poverty. The optics of the Clintons back in the D.C. social network with its elites having fun and taking long vacations at the taxpayer expense was too much. As for having a vagina... doesn't mean she was the best person for the job. I sincerely wish President Trump all my best.

hey 2DL4U, gimme a break! Hillary's being a woman had nothing to do with her losing the election. or, at the very least, nothing to do with why I didn't vote for her. no, it probably had more to do with the fact that she's as shady as the spot underneath a pecan tree in July! anyway, Welcome Back Dylan! I still remember your cannibalistic mother eating Santa Claus 4 years ago! I will NEVER forget! LOL! as for the election, yes, I'm happy as a clam that Trump beat that witch Hillary. but now here's the kicker, I enjoyed your parody too! for you see, we Trump supporters are not all the intolerant bigots that some Hillary supporters like to paint us as! I, at least, can laugh at myself. if the writing's good, it's good! doesn't have to be in line with my beliefs. I got knocked for speaking positively of a Trump-Mocking parody just yesterday, by someone who clearly expected me to hate it just because I didn't agree with it. well to quote Mr. Trump, "WRONG!" 5s
