Subject: RE: Songs For The Age Of Trump
We've been working up "God Bless the Grass" written by Malvina Reynolds in 1964.

Also, there's this one which we wrote and posted on another thread but it seems more appropriate here:

I WAS BORN ABOUT TEN THOUSAND YEARS AGO (Trump)

      
1. I was born about ten thousand years ago
    And there's nothing in this world that I don't know
    I can handle any crisis, I can even wipe out Isis
    And I'll lick the guy that says it isn't so

2. I am Satan and immigrants I deplore
    I want Mexicans and Muslims out the door
    And from my tower tweetin', the lies I am repeatin'
    And I swear that I believe 'em to the core

3. I saw Hillary out on the campaign trail
    And thought I'd never live to tell the tale
    But I got diabolic and became quite hyperbolic
    And said I thought she ought to be in jail

4. I heard Samson had very tiny hands
    I told Columbus that I would own this land
    And for Ivana's little kiddies, I bought half of New York City
    And to Atlantic City took my brand

5. I taught Solomon his little A-B-C's
    I bragged about my own depravities
    I sometimes went astray shortly past my wedding day
    And I never even made apologies

6. Then Marla, she fell in love with me
    We were married owing to her pregnancy
    But I fooled around and shook her, found Melania like a hooker
    Then I started up a university

7. I was born about ten thousand years ago
    And there's nothing in this world that I don't know
    I'm a climate change denier and a frequent falsifier
    And I'll lick the guy that say it isn't so
