Capt. Telemark Lyr Req: Trump songs (14) RE: Lyr Req: Trump songs 13 Jan 21


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]

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