there was a somewhat off topic discussion of Donald Trump's current campaign on a facebook page celebrating Phil Ochs --- so now I'm looking for songs based on any of Trump's exploits

existent or newly penned lyrics welcome (take this as a song challenge if you wish)

BEHIND BLUE EYES
No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the mad man
Behind trump eyes
And no one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated to telling only lies
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my golf course seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free
No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you
No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through
But my dreams they aren't as empty
As my hotels seem to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free
No one knows what its like
To be mistreated, to be defeated
Behind blue eyes
An no…

These songs will seem less relevant in a week. I usually leave out two verses when I sing it, since it is a bit long.

Before Mexico pays for the wall

I don't claim to be an astronomer,
But I'm sure that the stars will fall,
And I will win a Nobel prize,
Before Mexico pays for the wall

It's clear that the climate is changing,
Winters now seem more like fall,
But I know that Hell will freeze over,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    CHORUS
We all have wished for something we want,
Money , good looks, or good health,
But if trump is as rich as he says he is,
He can pay for the wall himself.

I've never been very athletic,
I can't run much faster than a crawl,
But I'll win an Olympic Gold medal,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

I know I'm not much of a singer,
My voice might make your skin crawl,
But I'm sure that I'll win a Grammy,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    Chorus

Shakespeare said all the world is a stage,
And that we are players all,
And I'll have an armful of Oscars,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

I'm not an ornithologist,
I can't ID bird calls,
But I will fly like an Eagle,
Before Mexico pays for the wall.

    Chorus

We should not be governed by hubris,
Pride goeth before a fall,
But driven by vanity, goaded by Hannity,
TRump wants us to pay for his wall.

TRump claimed he would balance the budget,
He hasn't and he never will,
China will finance his spending,
And our grandkids will inherit the bill.

We all have wished for something we want,
Money , good looks, AND good health,
But if TRump is so rich, that son of a bitch,
Can pay for the wall himself.

You can hear it (poorly sung) on my YouTube channel

Rake, Rake, Rake

Intro: A little more than two years ago, Northern California was under a heavy pall of smoke, but that was nothing compared to the suffering of our friends and relatives and neighbors who lost everything in one of the big wildfires. A little while later, our dear leader came to Butte County to show just how much empathy he's capable of, and to share his vast knowledge of how to prevent more wildfires. I thought his wisdom should be set to music--using that term very loosely.

CHORUS
    (So) Rake, Rake, Rake the forest clean,
    Make it the cleanest forest floor you've ever seen,
    Rake it to bare earth, to keep the forests green,
    Rake, Rake, Rake the forest clean.

California is on fire, I need someone to blame,
If the earth should shake and quake, my response would be the same,
Paradise or Pleasure, who cares about the name,
Everything is politics, that's my only game,

BRIDGE
    I'm a forest fire expert, just ask me,
    Though I don't know which end's which on a Pulaski,
    I just blurt what's in my head, then I don't know what I
    said,
    And, I've never seen the forest for the trees.

I cut from Forest management, to spend more on defense,
Not defense of people's homes, that would make way too much sense,
I don't believe in climate change, and I am proud to be so dense,
That's why the right-wing kooks have so much confidence.

    [Chorus]

California lets some river water run out to the sea,
It seems like such a waste to let it follow gravity,
It ends up getting salty, and full of salmon pee,
It would be a better use to dump it all on golf club greens.

    [Chorus]

Hearable on YouTube

How many of you have ever sung about salmon pee??? A Pulaski???

This is not just about trump, but you might notice a reference to one of his most infamous statements. There is a verse admonishing the ladies to do the right thing, but I can't find it at the moment.

Keep It In Your Pants

It's not pleasant to discuss this, but I really think I must,
You know there are some famous men, we thought that we could trust,
Men of wealth and stature that seemed to have good sense,
But we know now, they don't know how, to keep it in their pants.

CHORUS
    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    But we know now, they don't know how, to keep it in their pants.

When you're the boss of someone, and you think you'll have your way,
The power is not balanced , there are no shades of gray,
You think she's so impressed with you, she'll welcome your advance,
But when in doubt, don't whip it out, just keep it in your pants

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    When in doubt, don't whip it out, just keep it in your pants

Don't grab 'em by the pussy, don't pat 'em on the butt,
Just think how you would feel if someone grabbed you by the nuts,
Keep your privates private, don't act like a dunce
Take a tip, keep it zipped, just keep it in your pants

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    Take a tip, keep it zipped, just keep it in your pants

When You meet a lovely lady, and you hope you can connect,
You've got a better chance, if you treat her with respect,
If the lady you are wooing doesn't welcome your advance,
If uninvited, not requited, just keep it in your pants.

    So, keep it in your pants, guys, keep it in your pants,
    Whether you're at work, on the bus, or at a dance,
    Keep it in your pants, please, keep it in your pants,
    If uninvited, not requited, just keep it in your pants.

And there's a special situation, that's got a Scottish lilt,
Would all you Highland laddies, please keep it in your kilt,
Keep it in your kilt, lads, keep it in your kilt,
Would all you Highland laddies, please keep it in your kilt.

Sally Rogers and Charlie King were singing their own version of this song, to the tune of "Sixteen Tons. I'm asked them for their verses.

This is as far as I got last weekend:

By Charlie Ipcar, 5/1/2024
Tune: “sixteen Tons”

Thirty-Four Felonies

Thirty-four felonies and what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt;
St. Peter, don’t you call me ‘cos’ I can’t wait,
I’ve sold my soul to be Chief of State!

It was early one morning, cloudy and cool,
Trump pulled up to the court house, addressed the press pool;
“I’m an innocent man and this trial is a joke,
And you’ll soon see who’s been blowing thick smoke.”

The jury filed in, their verdict in hand,
Trump rose up and straight did stand;
“Thirty four felonies,” the court clerk tolled,”
The judge scratched his head said, “Well, bless my soul!”

Notes:

For years tRump supporters have rejected the charge that "he had no convictions." Since last Thursday afternoon, around 4:30pm, they must feel vindicated as he racked up 34 convictions, all of them felonies.

Next stop will be sentencing, July 11th.

Has a rep for bein' honest
Well, there was a prez named Nixon
But y'all are just biased

And then we had a man
Name o' Donald Trump
Made a fortune in casinos

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia;

"Old Man Trump" is a song with lyrics written by American folk singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie in 1954. The song describes the racist housing practices and discriminatory rental policies of his landlord, Fred Trump (the father of the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump). Although the lyrics were written in 1954, it was never recorded by Guthrie. In January 2016, Will Kaufman, a Guthrie scholar and professor of American literature and culture at the University of Central Lancashire, unearthed the handwritten lyrics while conducting research at the Woody Guthrie Archives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In December 1950, Woody Guthrie signed a lease at the Beach Haven apartment complex owned and operated by Fred Trump in Gravesend, Brooklyn. There are several handwritten drafts of the lyrics with titles such as "Beach Haven Race Hate" and "Beach Haven Ain't My Home". In its lyrics, Guthrie expresses his dissatisfaction with Trump and the "color line" he had drawn in his Brooklyn neighborhood:

I suppose
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
Racial Hate
He stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his Beach Haven family project

Similarly, an unreleased variant of Guthrie's "Ain't Got No Home" protests Trump's segregation at Beach Haven.

Beach Haven is Trump's Tower
Where no Black folks come to roam
No, no, Old Man Trump!
Old Beach Haven ain't my home!

According to scholar Will Kaufman, Guthrie "thought that Fred Trump was one who stirs up racial hate, and implicitly profits from it." In Guthrie's notebooks he wrote about wanting to put an end to the segregation with "a face of every bright color laffing and joshing in these old darkly weeperish empty shadowed windows."

Those Gallant Red Hats (G).                Tune = After the Ball was Over
author = Bill Ogden

After the votes were counted, after the deed had been done,
Many a heart had been broken, vic-try had still not been won.
“Hold on,” our bold leader urged us, “just bully those weak bureaucrats,
Never give in for an instance, keep wearing those gallant red hats.

Pennsylvania, Nevada, Wisconsin, all can be turned if we press,
Law suits, and recounts, and lying, cheating, subversion and stress.
Keep up the pressure on Georgia, push on ‘til others fall flat,
All of the nation will know you, in your gallant red hat.”

After the mob has all gone home, after the smoke fin-ly clears,
Gone is the strength of our people, gone are the brave volunteers.
Gone is the voice of our leader, purged from its old habitat,
All I have left of this glory, is my gallant red hat.

Richard Thompson's 'Fergus Laing' does not mention Trump by name, but is clearly based on him:


Fergus Laing is a beast of a man
He stitches up and fleeces
He wants to manicure the world
And sell it off in pieces
He likes to build his towers high
He blocks the sun out of the sky
In the penthouse the champagne’s dry
And slightly gassy

Fergus Laing he works so hard
A'busy as a bee is
Fergus Laing has 17 friends
All as dull as he is
A'17 friends, a'17 wives
All the perfect shape and size
They wag their tails and bat their eyes
Just like Lassie

Fergus Laing he builds and builds
Yet small is his erection
Fergus Laing has a fine head of hair
When the wind’s in the right direction
The wind's in the right direction

Fergus Laing and his 17 friends
They live inside a bubble
There they withdraw and shut the door
At any sign of trouble
Should the peasants wail and vent
And ask him where the money went
He’ll simply say, it’s all been spent
On being classy.

Fergus Laing he builds and builds
Yet small is his erection
Fergus Laing has a fine head of hair
When the wind’s in the right direction
The wind's in the right direction.

Fergus’ buildings reach the sky
Until you cannot see ‘em
He thinks the old stuff he pulls down
Belongs in a museum.
His fits are famous on the scene
The shortest fuse, so cruel, so mean
But don't call him a drama queen
Like Shirley Bassey

I wrote this a few months back when Trump was first indicted. The tune is In the Jailhouse Now.

BTW, when I do this song I do it like Leon Redbone with hat, dark glasses and false facial hair. Seems to fit!

In The Shithouse Now
(New lyrics by Jay Pearlman)

There once was a guy named Donald J. Trump,
Long arm of the law thumped Trump on his rump,
He thought he was the smartest guy around;
Well, it was a Witch Hunt or worse day,
Indictment came down on a Thursday,
He’s headed for the hoosegow way downtown!
   
He’s in the shithouse now!
He’s in the shithouse now!
Grand Jury said it ain’t funny
To pay a porn star hush-hush money,
He’s in the shithouse now!

[Bad Yodeling]

Angry fist he was pumpin’,
American flag he was humpin’,
The Golden Arches was his favorite shrine;
He’ll get throw’d in jail,
Melania won’t go his bail,
The judge done said “Sedition’s next in line!” (That's fine!)

He’s in the shithouse now!
He’s in the shithouse now!
His face looked meaner and meaner
When the judge said, “Grab ‘im by the subpoena!”
He’s in the shithouse now!

[More Bad Yodeling]

Stormy went “Hubba-Hubba!
Maybe Trump’ll get a cellmate named Bubba!”
And Alvin Bragg’s the toughest guy in town;
The D.A. said it was rash
To have your lawyer slippin’ her cash,
Looks like Chester Cheeto’s goin’ down! (That clown!)

He’s in the shithouse now!
He’s in the shithouse now!
Left your MAGA pals in the lurch,
Now it’s fingerprints and a cavity search, (Ow!)
He’s in the shithouse now!

[Still More Bad Yodeling]
