The Lyrics

Surprised this didn't appear yesterday as it's the obvious parody now. Remember what my acronym means, Enjoy Without Prejudice. If you disagree, then still enjoy it for what it is
He’s paranoid we all know it,
We don't talk too much about it
Travel plans, travel bans, but green cards,
Hopefully get around it

Listen, although it don't affect me
Oh can’t we believe what we want to believe
You see, you don't have to pick on the refugees
Don't have to pick on the refugees

There’s so little evidence of threats
Anyway they’re kicked
You know they don’t want to stay there
No violent intentions

Oh yeah, it’s just really bad policy
Aren’t we supposed to be the land of the free
You see, you don't have to pick on the immigrants
No no Trump, you don't have to pick on the immigrants

No more huddled masses
I'm sure a lot are now kicked on their asses
Justice department not told
It’s just an executive order that’s too bold

Too mean, too wrong, not needed and then
Put in anyway
Will he maybe have the wall start,
Without congress having a say

Although, it won't have an effect to me
Here in, America needn’t fight to be free
You see, you don't have to pick on the refugee
No, you don't have to pick on the immigrant
No Trump, you don't have to pick on the refugee

So despite my disclaimer at the top, a few of you still gave this 1's anyway. Don't know what to say except that doing that is petty and childish. Trump has his faults like everyone, you should realize this. With being in power, some of his decisions are and will be controversial for a reason. You should be able to handle well deserved criticism against him and appreciate points of view different from your own. To all who voted higher I appreciate it and I'm glad that you could enjoy this parody
