The Lyrics

I've included a link for the OS lyrics at the bottom, for anyone who may want to spoof this one.
[REFRAIN:]
DONALD
The Donald
Daring
Duty sworn

[SPOKEN:]
They say you're over rated
Do you care for what they've said?
Or will you eat them for your breakfast?
And cross the carpet red
They're betting you have faded
But you bet your life they're off
So keep riding towards Las Vegas
To build where you aloft

[REFRAIN:]

DONALD
"The Donald"

Can you still keep growing large?

[ BACKGROUND SOUNDS:]
Casino Sounds, Jackpots all around, ding, ding, ding...

Now the change gets crazy
And you can't help thinking
Of the things that you have in store

But you gotta gamble
On this new horizon
For the dream that proffers reward

[REFRAIN:]

DONALD
The Donald

Will you still be taking charge?

[SPOKEN:]
Will you still keep taking charge?

[BACKGROUND SOUNDS:]
Clamouring paparazi snapping pictures and camera flashes everywhere

[SPOKEN:]
With you're headlines in the presses
Fighting critics tooth and nail
You brought production westward
So is this your final tale?
You've made it in the Apple
Dug your empire in the rock
You beat a Billion bullies
But your flight keeps making talk

[REFRAIN:]

CHISUM
John Chisum

Can you still keep growing large?


[SPOKEN:]
Can you still keep growing large?

[INTERLUDE:]

Now the change gets crazy
And you cant help thinking
Of the baubles that moving will seed
There are those who panic
At this new adventure
But your gumption will somehow succeed

[REFRAIN:]

DONALD
The Donald

Will you still keep growing large?
Can you still keep taking charge?

I saw the movie today. Whats hilarious is if you swap the 'John Chisum' in the song for Jism the song takes on a whole new meaning...

Hey, I really want to find the lyrics to the original ballad of John Chisum, but the link is dead. Can you help me find them?
