                      Mr. Blue                

Florence Reese - Which Side Are You On?

Joe Hill -         The Preacher and the Slave

I see someone else has revived a thread about the song "Pass it On"

Freedom doesn't come like a bird on the wing,
Doesn't come down like the falling rain,
You've got to work for it, fight for it,
Night and day for it,
And every generation has to win it again.

----
how about Joshua Fit the Battle of Jerico (and the walls come a-tumbling down)
some of "Guest"'s recommended songs directly related to the Vietnam war don't seem so timely to me though (not yet?)

That's OK Felipa-

1. Just give it a little time

or

2. Substitute "Iraq" or "Afghanistan" or "Syria" or the predominantly Muslim country of your choice.

Vietnam may have lasted 20 years, but we've been in Afghanistan 14 years plus & are catching up fast.

Well, here's one I wrote myself, on the day I woke up to find that he had been elected. I posted it then on another thread, and was told it was unfair to orang-utans!
I'll leave you to guess which tune it is set to: certainly those who grew up with "Children's Favourites" on Saturday am radio in the UK will know!

TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP                        

From New York
A travelling businessman came,
But not an intelligent elephant,
No, a bloke with a funny name,
Mop of hair,
And face with a very fake tan,
O what a farce, he might well pass
For an outsize orang-utan.

Donald, th'orang-utan packed his cart
And trundled off to the golf course,
Off he went with a trumpety-trump,
Trump, Trump, Trump.
Doesn't want wind farms to blight his view
But happy to knock down some houses,
Said he was doing it for everyone's good,
Trump, Trump, Trump.
But soon bigger things were calling, far, far away,
He put himself up as a candidate
In the US election fray.
BUT, that was in April, and no-one believed
That Donald would ever pursue it:
Now you must agree how wrong you can be,
Trump, Trump, Trump.

Night by night,
He'd rant and point and rave,
When Donald was up on the podium
He looked so proud and brave,
Dirty tricks
Yon Donald did perform
But yet he just deluded them
And took the crowd by storm.

What a palaver for months on end,
Touring all over the country,
Hillary missed out Wisconsin, oh dear, but not
Trump, Trump, Trump.
Lawyers and FBI all muscled in
To ride on this huge roller-coaster,
Vote for the "lesser of evils" they said, not
Trump, Trump, Trump?

The Mexican border was calling, far, far away,
He'll send all those immigrants building his wall,
And leave them the other side of it,
While others are fleeing to Canada,
The moon or Mars or Australia,
What kind of country will America be, with
Trump, Trump, Trump?

On he went,
Trampling others down,
He only had one goal in life,
To take the President's crown.
Just how many people did he offend?
Which makes it such a mystery
Why they voted for him in the end.

All other candidates whittled away,
He had to face up to Ms Clinton,
TV debates, all fuelled with hate,
Trump, Trump, Trump.
Misogynist, racist and bigoted perv,
And don't mention emails from Hillary,
Lies and distortion, all out of proportion,
Trump, Trump, Trump.
Washington DC is calling, not so far away,
He'll be in The White House by January,
What horror, is all I can say.
BUT silver-tongued words will not change my mind,
Nor red baseball caps even tempt me,
Just keep your hands well off pussies and buttons, Trump, Trump, Trump!

Another by Tom Lehrer : National Brotherhood Week


Oh, the white folks hate the black folks,
And the black folks hate the white folks.
To hate all but the right folks
Is an old established rule.

But during National Brotherhood Week, National Brotherhood Week,
Lena Horne and Sheriff Clarke are dancing cheek to cheek.
It's fun to eulogise
The people you despise,
As long as you don't let 'em in your school.

Oh, the poor folks hate the rich folks,
And the rich folks hate the poor folks.
All of my folks hate all of your folks,
It's American as apple pie.

But during National Brotherhood Week, National Brotherhood Week,
New Yorkers love the Puerto Ricans 'cause it's very chic.
Step up and shake the hand
Of someone you can't stand.
You can tolerate him if you try.

Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
And everybody hates the Jews.

But during National Brotherhood Week, National Brotherhood Week,
It's national everyone-smile-at-one-another-hood week.
Be nice to people who
Are inferior to you.
It's only for a week, so have no fear.
Be grateful that it doesn't last all year!

Caribbeans been doing dechoukaj for centuries. Welcoming y'all to Third World politics with:

Harper Valley P.T.A. a song about self-righteous hypocrisy and Greig's Hall of the Mountain King

As if the fear, hate, arrogance, entitlement &c reflected here somehow magically materialized one recent November night? Puh-leeeze! Y'all just facing in the other direction. Nada mas.

Meryl Streep, meaning 'high brow' Creative Artist Agency and major Obama contributor Hollywood agent Bryan Lourd, is on about Trump and mixed martial arts (MMA) which is represented by 'low brow' William Morris Endeavor and Ari Emanuel. FYI they also did Trump's Miss Universe pageantry, still do for all I know.

Ari is brother to Rahm who was Obama's senior advisor and is now the Mayor of Chicago (aka Chi-raq) Fouler mouths than Trump could ever manage and their father Benjamin makes The Donald look like Gandhi in a fuzzy pink bunny suit.

And the Yanks (Carter, Obama, Trump same-same) have been 'banning Muslims' and other sundry Barbary Coasters since before they were united or states or their Marines had a Hymn to sing.

YT: Trump will never be president!

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

I keep thinking of Elvis Costello's Tramp The Dirt Down . It was originally written about Margaret Thatcher and includes this verse:

Well I hope I don't die too soon
I pray the lord my soul to save
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live
Long enough to savor
That's when they finally put you in the ground
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down

Ha, you can't keep a good tune down, especially when the lyrics mention Trump, Trump, Trump! Enjoyed the other song posted by Anonymous!
For those in the UK who can get BBCiPlayer, do try to catch Karine Polwart's opening number at the first concert of this year's Celtic Connections: powerful and emotional stuff. (She also wrote an earlier version for when Trump came and destroyed part of the Aberdeenshire coast in pursuit of building his new golf course - as also mentioned in the first verse of my song.)

Here is what Craig wrote: Mister Trump Don't Like It


Mr. Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here (x3)
No nasty women, nobody trans or queer
Mr. Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
I'm told the Scientists all jumped up and began to shout (x3)
"Brother, time to cool the heat is just a-runnin' out!"
Mr .Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
I'm told the Doctors and Nurses all jumped up and had a fit (x3)
"We ain't got all the poor folks on insurance yet!"
Mr. Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
I'm told the Billionaires turned 'round and began to grin (x3)
"Lord, I believe we'll never have to pay no tax again!"
Mr. Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
I'm told the Preachers looked around, said,
"Sister, why don't you hush your voice?' (x3)
"I'd rather see you die than let you make a choice!"
Mr. Trump don't like it, ain't gonna have it here
I'm told the fragile white boys began to whine and pout (3x)
"Lock the Black folks up, kick the Brown folks out!"
Mr. Trump don't like 'em, ain't gonna have 'em here!
You don't like my peaches, don't shake my tree (x3)
You don't like my fruit, let my orchard be
Mr. Trump, we don't like it, ain't gonna have it here

Here are a few that seem timely to me:

A Piece of the Wall (by Charlie King) - About the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and all the walls that still remain to be torn down.

Stand Up (by Mike Stern, recorded by Charlie King and Karen Brandow) (based on the words of Pastor Neimeier who said "First they came for the Communists, but I wasn't a communist so I didn't stand up...)

Imagine (You Have Healthcare) - parody version of Imagine w/new lyrics by Charlie King.

Government on Horseback (by Si Kahn) - Written for the Reagan era, but still sadly relevant.

And, as someone else above mentioned, just about anything by Anne Feeney!

And just about anything by Roy Zimmerman.

And, a traditional song - "Rigs of the Time" (Honesty's all out of fashion, these are the rigs of the time). This one's been haunting me lately.

This is a link to a BBC Radio 3 recording of the opening concert of Celtic Connections 2017.

I hope you may be able to access this. Karine Polwart's introduction and song are the first item.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b088jm22 18 days left to listen!

Variation on the Beale Street Shieks' great 1920s recording of the Memphis classic from the Boss Crump era, "Mr. Crump Don't Like It" (it's on YouTube)— I see I'm not the first to have this idea, either —

Mr. Trump Don't Like It

Refrain
Well, Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it in here (2)
   Mr. Trump don't like it, we're gonna have it in here,
   Ain't nobody standin' 'round tremblin' with fear,
Uh, Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

1.
I saw the brother jumped up, turn around and began to shout (2)
   Brother jumped up, an' began to shout,
   Says, I'm so glad they gonna throw Trump out,
Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

2.
Sister turned around, Brother, why'n the hell don't you hush? (2)
   Sister turned around, Brother, why don't you hush,
   You were the one said Trump was better than Bush,
Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

3.
Well, I jumped up, turned around and begun to grin (2)
   I jumped up, turn 'round, begin to grin,
   Now ain't you sad you vote to bring Trump in,
Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

4.
Now they all talkin' Mr. Trump done his coo dee tat, (2)   (coup d'etat)
   They all talkin' 'bout his coo dee tat,
   They linin' up people with a baseball bat,
Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

5.
You can't have my peches, Mr. Trump, don't you shake my tree (2)
   You can't have my peaches, don't you shake my tree,
   You can't have my freedom, let my freedom be,
Mr. Trump don't like it, but we gonna have it here.

Ap a deep bap boodat ... (scatting ad lib)

Larry the Radio Guy: there's only one video of me singing my song: in a very noisy Edinburgh pub - not my finest hour, so I'll try and do it somewhere quieter and let you know when it's done!
