The Lyrics

A riff on the absurdity of Donald Trump in the White House.
he’s a native of New York from the borough of Queens
now he’s known around the world as a man of many means
he grew up headstrong always knowing where to go
and his mother didn’t dare to ever ever tell him no
he never learned to get along very well
but he could swing a deal or so to hear him tell

no no Donnie no
no no Donnie no
no no no Donnie no
Donnie be good

he grew up on the right side of the railroad track
Donnie always moved forward without looking back
he is strong he’s successful in deal after deal
and he’s got some political sex appeal
he starred on his Apprentice reality show
now on to bigger things he’s a man on the go

go go Donnie go
go go go Donnie go
go Donnie go
oh Donnie be good

he’s on his way to be the leader of the free world
he don’t let his disrupters get his hair unfurled
his speeches imply he doesn’t mind a bar fight
so that’s what we get from his fans on the right
with his name on lots of buildings and more than one spouse
by January’s end he’ll own the Trump White House

go go Donnie go
go go go Donnie go
it’s your show Donnie go
Donnie be good up there

For starters, this is pretty good. You had just one pacing error in your song, but it was major and it came early in the song (second line, first stanza) You've got 14 syllables for a line that has only 12 syllables in the OS. If you had written , "He's known worldwide as a man of many means", you would have nailed it.
