This was written, or at least co-written, by my good acquaintance Sebastian Durfee.
    To the Tune of “Hey there Delilah,” by the Plain White T’s, apparently. I don’t know, for certain, I’m not up on Rock music.
    Enjoy,
Kristoffer

Hey there, Melania

Hey there, Melania, what’s it like in New York City,
I’ve been living here in Washington and Damn, this house is shitty,
Yes, it’s true,
Trump tower has a better view,
It’s huger too.

Hey there Melania, I know times are getting hard,
‘Cuz first with Bowling Green, now Sweden,
We’re not safe in our own yard,
We’ll build a wall,
We’ll make it 50 stories tall,
No fun at all,

Oh, It’s lonely in D.C. (five times)

Hey there Melania, all my ratings are tremendous,
But I think I liked it better when I starred on “the Apprentice”
I’m alone,
Why don’t the Children ever phone,
I’m on my own.

Hey there Melania, I’ve got so much stuff to do,
Why did I make so many promises, I’ll never follow through,
It’s just the worst,
Pence keeps reminding me to work,
He’s such a jerk.

Oh, It’s lonely in D.C. (four times)

I said I’d make things great again, now here I am in Washington,
I really only did it for the fame
I didn’t read the overview, there’s actually a job to do,
I miss when this was only just a game,
Melania I admit to you, I clearly didn’t think this through,
I really thought my life would stay the same,
But now it’s lame.

Hey there Melania, you be good and don’t you miss me,
Four more years and I’ll be home again, and back to winning bigly,
Wait and see,
Just four more years and I’ll be free,
I won’t be stuck here in D.C.

Hey there Melania, here’s to me,
It’s only me.
Oh, It’s lonely in D.C. (five times)
    Repeat refrain on a “Woa” syllable.

Pharaoh

by Richard Thompson

Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel
The dogs of money all at his heel
Magicians cry "Oh truth! Oh real!"
We're all working for the Pharaoh

A thousand eyes, a thousand ears
He feeds us all, he feeds our fears
Don't stir in your sleep tonight, my dears
We're all working for the Pharaoh

It's Egypt land, Egypt land
We're all living in Egypt land
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
We're all working for the Pharaoh

Hidden from the eye of chance
The men of shadow dance a dance
We're all struck into a trance
We're all working for the Pharaoh

The idols rise into the sky
Pyramids soar, Sphinxes lie
Head of dog, Osiris eye
We're all working for the Pharaoh

And it's Egypt land, Egypt land
We're all living in Egypt land
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
We're all working for the Pharaoh

I dig a ditch, I shape a stone
Another battlement for his throne
Another day on earth is flown
We're all working for the Pharaoh

Call it England, you call it Spain
Egypt rules with a whip and chain
Moses free my people again
We're all working for the Pharaoh

And it's Egypt land, Egypt land
We're all living in Egypt land
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
We're all working for the Pharaoh

Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel
Around his feet the princes kneel
Far beneath we shoulder the wheel
We're all working for the Pharaoh

The song I mentioned in my previous post, "Lady of the Harbor", might be found more easily as performed by the recently defunct group, Brother Sun, of which Joe Jencks was a member. There's also an entirely different song by that name written by Si Kahn. I believe that Joe and Si will be doing a series of gigs together soon.

Canadian Ian Robb's brilliant They're Taking It Away covers lots of the points that need making. He's just fine with having it Americanized or modified for specific protests. I've highlighted the changes I made:

Chorus
Oh, they're taking it away, Yes they're taking it away
They are taking all the good things You can hear the people say
And they'll take it all tomorrow If they don't take it today
From the poor and sick and helpless, They are taking it away.


Oh our government's elected in the democratic way
A-whining at the cost of all the things they have to pay
And the bully-boys on Wall Street, you can hear the bastards say,
"To hell with paying taxes, pull the safety-net away!"

If you're down upon your luck and need to keep the wolf at bay
Just don't rely on welfare or the dole to pay your way
For the rich, they have decided not another cent to pay
You can whistle for your supper for they've taken it away

If you're native, black, or Asian, if you're feminist or gay
If you're just a little different from the most of us today
If you want to make your point or if you want to have your say
You can spit into the wind for they have taken it away

If you're battered by your husband and you need a place to stay
You'd best get down upon your knees and quickly learn to pray
For the women's center's phone was disconnected yesterday
And there's no-one left to talk to, now they've taken it away

If it's ever your misfortune in a hospital to stay
You'd best not be impatient for a bed on which to lay
For your health ain't worth the taxes that the healthy have to pay
And the beds were too expensive, so they've taken them away

Oh there's those that have and those that don't and those that are okay
And there's those who understand that fairness is the only way
But there's those that are so comfortable they look the other way
And they vote for all the villains who would take it all away

So if you've health and wealth and wisdom stop and spare a thought today
For those who don't and those who can't, there is no other way
If we don't get out and vote to save the USA
There won't be a Constitution when they take it all away

Trumpet Hornpipe, See my post about Tea-Rump-A-Turd from a year ago. I learned the tune from a Boston player forty years ago, and had never heard of Captain Pugwash til I tried playing the tune here in a Northern California session last year and was stopped from playing the tune by a local Irish expat who grew up with "Pugwash". For a history of the tune go to TheSession.org: https://thesession.org/tunes/1408, and decide for yourself if it is Irish. At least its not wasting a beloved melody on a pile of shit.

Hey guys, Woody's "Old Man Trump" (itself spun from "Aint got no Home in this World") has given birth to numerous spin offs including this one, called "You Aint my President" soon to be issued on my next album. The demo is already on Youtube if you can't wait. Number 6 in my arsenal of Trump songs. Use it freely. Folksongs ARE dangerous.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJ_MLnOEydg

You Ain’t My President                        Jack Warshaw 2017

I can see and I suppose that goddam Trump he shows
Just how much hate he sows in the world of human kind
When you took that oath of office, right there I knew for sure
That this land was not my land any more.

Chorus
        Oh, Mister Trump, you ain’t my President
        My country’s on the rocks and my soul is badly bent
        You don’t fool me at all, your pride will see you fall
        No, no, Mr Trump, you ain’t my President

You cheated, lied and stole, to fix those voting polls
The promises you made were paid by human souls
Now you have the power, you take instead of give
You’re using up the country, how can the country live?

        Chorus

You deny the Earth’s in danger, you sponsor greed and waste
You want to ban all immigrants of any different faith
You think women are just playthings, you crush poor people’s health
You think that a person’s dignity is only based on wealth

        Chorus

Fake news is the tool you use to hide the deeds you do
But you can’t hide the truth that the biggest fake is you
Now everybody knows it, and you will soon be gone
Damn you, Mr Trump and the horse you rode in on.

        Chorus

If we believe the polls the man has been elected by the majority of those voting and until the CIA arrange his unfortunate demise he can continue to annoy.

The money megadons love him because he is furthering the cause of their desire to rule the world.

Especially:

Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
Empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters

Woody Guthrie - Mean Talkin' Blues
"... I go around a-causin' a lot of accidents,
And I push folks down, and I cause train wrecks.
I'm a big disaster....
I laugh my loudest when other people cry.
Can't help it....
And I'm readin' all the books I can
To learn how to hurt....
Well, if I can get the fat to hatin' the lean
That'd tickle me more than anything I've seen,
Then get the colors to fightin' one another,
And friend against friend, and brother, and sister against brother,
That'll be just it."

Pink Floyd - The Fletcher Memorial Home
"Take all your overgrown infants away somewhere
And build them a home, a little place of their own.
The Fletcher Memorial Home For Incurable Tyrants And Kings.
And they can appear to themselves every day
On closed circuit T.V.
To make sure they're still real.
It's the only connection they feel...."

Country singer Toby Keith sang this song at Trump's inaugural concert.
The concert was reviewed by the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and the Guardian, and not one of them commented on this song.


Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day, son 
A man had to answer for the wicked that he done 
Take all the rope in Texas find a tall oak tree, 
Round up all them bad boys hang them high in the street 
For all the people to see... 

You got to saddle up your boys, you got to draw a hard line 
When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune 
And we'll all meet back at the local saloon 

Donald Trump watches Toby Keith sing "Beer for My Horses" at Trump's inaugural concert, Friday January 19th. 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc3rPC8HijM  
"Beer" starts at 7:50. "Round up all those bad boys, hang 'em high in a tree" is at 8:25.

Here's one I made up ( under the pseudonym Pussygate Galore) and sang at the Women's March in Fort Bragg.


Floozies
                        
I did not kiss her on the plane
I did not kiss her on the train
I did not kiss her on the lips
I did not grab her by the hips.

I did not grope her in a pub
I did not grope her at my club
I did not push her towards the bed
Or any other thing she said.

        I'll sue them all for telling lies
        And I will not apologize
        If stupid floozies cannot see
        No one respects them more than me.
        
I was not crass, I did not flirt
I did not reach beneath her skirt
That is a vicious Clinton smear
I am the only victim here.

She is ugly, she is ill
Bet she cheats on Cheatin' Bill
I will lock her in a cell
With that loudmouth (bleep) Michelle.

        So that foreign-born Obama
        Has to do it with a llama
        I will make them all lament
        As soon as I am president.
        Yes, I will make them all repent
        As soon as I am president.

Try singing Tea-Rump-a-Turd to the Irish Trumpeter's hornpipe. It may not explain his politics, but on juvenile scatological level its a fun way to deal with his slimy shit!

There is a (very fine but rather hard to sing) song about Israel's wall by Leon Rosselson. Netanyahu just told us all that Trump's is the same deal.

Anyone know the tune for this?

See the happy moron
He doesn't give a damn
I wish I was a moron
My god perhaps I am

I'm A Stranger In My Own Land

Have You Had Enough?

Recently wrote the following don't have them recorded yet...

Discrimination's Fires
by Reggie Miles © 2017 All rights reserved

Say goodbye to net neutrality
Protesting is a felony
Abortion's illegal, immigration too
Freedom of speech is now taboo

Will this criminal nation ever learn
Discrimination's fires burn

Lower taxes for the wealthy few
Higher taxes for me and you
Healthcare lost to millions more
The rich get richer, the poor more poor

This criminal nation's greedy yearn
To see discrimination's fires burn

The new normal's not normal at all
Keep Mexicans out by building a wall
Muslims forced into a registry
To live in this land of the free

This criminal nation took a wrong turn
While discrimination's fires burn

Fake news is everywhere
Alternative facts are what we share
Normalization of violence and hate
Welcome to these un-united states

This criminal nation's hard to discern
As discrimination's fires burn

The president dodges his personal debt
Braggin bout grabbin what he can't get
He's a megalomaniac misogynist
Impeachment looms on everyone's lips

It's this criminal nation's end of days
Discrimination's fires are all ablaze

The republic's crashin to the ground
Because of a single orange faced clown
With tiny hands and skin too thin
A bad combover bully's narcissistic win

This criminal nation's point of no return
And discrimination's fires burn

My county tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing today
We've got to find a better way

This criminal nation has got to learn
Discrimination's fires burn

Millions marchin in the street
To an anti-fascist protest beat
They've had their fill of all this shit
And no they ain't gettin over it

This criminal nation better change its ways
Before discrimination's fires blaze

The Lesser Of Two Evils Is Evil Too
by Reggie Miles © 2016 All rights reserved

Every four years we're invited to say
How we'd like things to go our way
The hopefuls line up on display
Ready to kiss all the babies in the USA

Wrapped in the flag they stand on stage
Spouting platitudes to incite electorate rage
The two parties promise as they share their plan
How those others can't fix it but we sure can

That one's a hater, it's plain to see
I'm a different gender, so vote for me
That one's a liar, who wants only war
I'll make our country great once more

Each side is careful to make their case
How they're the least evil choice in the race
They repeat in every ad on TV
It's plain that they are far more evil than me

Choose to fear party one or to fear party two
That's the two party choice they offer to you
Choose the less evil is what they want us to do
But the lesser of two evils, is evil too

The lesser of two evils is not my choice
I've been listening to a different voice
A voice of hope and love in my ears
Driving away the hate and fears

`````````````````````````````````````````````````````

The Flimflam Man
by Reggie Miles © 2017 All rights reserved

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows that he's a sham
He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he's a sham
He'll deceive, mislead and betray you
Whenever he can

He's a hornswogglin guy
Tailor-made to lie and cheat
He's a hornswogglin guy
Tailor-made to lie and cheat
Ain't nobody nowhere
He won't mistreat

He comes to town
With his two-faced funk
Tryin' to shake you down
With his con and skunk

He'll play ya for a sucker
He's the rip-off king
He's a real fast-talker
Oh you know what I mean

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he's a sham
He'll bamboozle and defraud you
Every way that he can

You know that deception
Is his middle name
That low down swindle
Is his only game

He's here to dupe and fool ya
With his double-cross
His hustle is to screw ya
And stiff ya with a loss

He's the flimflam man
Everyone knows he loves to scam
He'll sting, fleece and bleed
Hose and ream you, like only he can

`````````````````````````````````````````````

Drumpft
by Reggie Miles © 2016 All rights reserved

Drumpft's a chump!
A narcissistic grump
An Oompa Loompa Hitler
We need to dump

He's a bigot
And doesn't get it
You voted for him?
You'll soon regret it!

His university failed
His airlines went down
His casinos closed
His vodka's not around

His TV show canceled
His mortgage company's broke
His marriages divorced
He's a bankrupt joke

He's not the choice
Of the electorate
He's a hate spewing
Bully Klandidate

He's a xenophobe
And a racist
He's a bad comb over
Misogynist

Do we like him? No!
Tell him he can go!
And hump his lyin' rump
Down loser road
