The Lyrics

Tom Steyer is a self-funded environmentalist billionaire candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination. He’s a long shot, but at least he’s got a better chance than Tulsi does. And at the most recent debate, he distinguished himself by wearing an unusual tartan tie.
A liberal billionaire
Lean, green guy
Today’s Tom Steyer
Lean, clean tie

Thinks the White House is for rent
So is he smart or arrogant?
He promotes the Earth’s defense
From the climate change events
Sea level

What you say about the man’s campaign
Is what you say about what’s in your brain
Throw some cash, buy some ads
Pump the Facebook page, start a fad

This man is, this man is
A Scottish tartan fan
That is why he wore
That tie

Today’s Tom Steyer
Wants to win it all
And he’d like to plant trees
And not build a wall

The White House is not for rent
So he will need the folks’ consent
Yes he’s hopeful they’ll be content
And vote him to lead government
But will they?

What you say about his candidacy
Is what you say about society
Tom is strong in early states
Nationwide, he’s not so great

His campaign, his campaign
Still is marching on
Trying to turn the tide

Would-be White House buyer, today’s Tom Steyer
He gets high on you
When you give to his campaign
It’s not like he really needs it anyway

Nailed it, Hu! I didn't see the "tartan tie" but he's already said enough to demonstrate his true colors. Keep 'em coming, my friend! Now which of the remaining Dem candidates to spoof or parody next?

I actually relieved to know that I am not the only one who is posting these Dem candidate parody songs. I think the total right now is 5-6 candidates. I am working on a parody about Gabbard vs. Clinton. It is a 13 min song so be patient.

Just think what you could do with "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly or "DOA" by Bloodrock! Each of those took up nearly an entire side of an LP album back in the day.

Tom Sawyer? LOL, more like Tom Steyer! Just kidding, I enjoyed it though.
