The Lyrics

twenty-sixteen was an upset year
when a con man got to be the *resident
now after two years of dysfunction
he got the country hostage for his wall, folks
he got the country hostage for his wall
*
we got people who are cruel
in the White House right now
we got people who are cruel
in the White House right now
we got some one who is cruel
in the White House right now
he could be a Russian tool
in the White House right now
*
golly be damn! he shut down the government
with a horrid little tantrum in his nursery
here sign my little check
I’m your manly *resident
and you aren’t man enough to worry me
*
but the new speaker plays it cool
she got moxie and how
the lady Speaker played it cool
she got moxie and how
that little lady’s pretty cool
she got moxie and how
she’s spent some time behind the mule
lady knows how to plow
*
rat-a-tat-tat lots of verbal warfare
she say the government can’t work for free
hey there little Speaker it’s my shutdown
and no one plays the bully like me girl
and no one plays the bully like me
*
that lady Speaker kept her cool
rollin’ her eyes ‘bout now
your border wall’s a useless tool
waggin’ her finger now
she knows she’s dealin’ with a fool
we are two-party now
he never been behind a mule
she’ll show him how to plow
*
*resident stood six foot two
up there in his room and he cried
he couldn’t make Speaker sign
couldn’t make a deal
now his base is a’watchin’ him cry
*
they can’t believe their cryin’ fool
he looks a loser right now
they can’t believe that this is true
never happened ‘ere now
their * resident just blew his cool
in the White House right now
*
democracy is hard to get for him
he really don’t care what he’s doin’
his acting cabinet all hoping for an Oscar
don’t stay long enough to earn it
and his base don’t know they got a screw in’
*
we got to get beyond the fool
we can start it right now
he don’t abide the golden rule
never learnt’ how to plow
so pull in the reins on the fool
put the brakes on him now
we got to get beyond the fool
vote bi-partisan now
*
said the ladies in the country
they’ve had enough of him
thirty-six new ladies in the House
some young and older and some hip hop
is how the real revolution begins
*
we got a new Speaker jewel
she is the Speaker now
we got us a re-do jewel
she is House Speaker now
we got us a re-do jewel
she’s the new Speaker now
she’s spent her time behind the mule
lady knows how to plow
*
the *resident begged, Senate leader went ghost
Speaker said no, said no is all she did
and he threw in his hand, yes he caved
dysfunction is all about him, folks
dysfunction is all about him
*
we got to get beyond the fool
in the White House right now
we got to rid us of the fool
do not do this wrong now
indictment is the best tool
legal proof is the how
if he resigns that’ll work too
then indict him and how
*
he’s indictable now!
*
he’s indictable now!
