Subject: Lyr Add: Pardons for Sale or Rent (after King of

In the next day or so Trump will be issuing pardons to the highest bidders, which reminds me of Roger Miller's old song "King of the Road." Feel free to contribute a verse or two. Here's a start:

Pardons for sale or rent,
Rooms to let fifty cents;
No wifi, no pool, no pets;
No subpoenas is what you gets!

Cheerily,
Charlie Ipcar

Funny, Charlie!

All I can think of is:

Four years of pushing lies
......
Now I'm a man of means by no means
King of the hype


Any ideas for the second line?

Okay...how's this?


King of the Hype
Tune = King of the Road

New York City, borough of Queens, upwardly successful by all means,
European women & bankruptcies…income tax deficiencies.
Rode “The Apprentice” when he could, all the way just like folks knew he would,
A busy man with game plan…King of the Hype.

Little buddy Kim Jong Un, North Korean honeymoon,
Used to call him Rocket Man…until he cut and ran,
Tried Ukrainian “Quid pro Quo,” impeachment followed apropos,
A wily con, he hung on…King of the Hype.

With Corona Virus, he would fail big,
Tried to deny it, tried to renege,
Election breached, twice impeached he never concedes, he gives

Pardons to those who pay, get ‘em quick before he goes away,
Five years of pushing lies…still briefed by Putin’s spies.
He likes insurrections & Qanon, golden showers kinda turn him on,
A lousy friend with no friends…King of the Hype.

Now it's over, now he'll go
Tryin' out Mar-a-lago
[Help]
But it's smellin' pretty ripe
Voter fraud? King of the Hype...

But I wouldn't have thought of the that without the inspiration from Charlie.

I've been wondering whether some of the lyrics from King of the Road might be relevant when he loses his financial status and has to slum it with the vagrant or homeless people:

Ah, but two hours of pushing broom Buys an eight by 12 four-bit room

and

Old worn out suit and shoes

and

I know ..Every handout in every town, Every lock that ain't locked when no one's around

Not being either male or young, the word "puerile" does not apply to me.

Sometimes when the dark days are getting lighter, and the world - or part thereof - may be heading towards better days, it's therapeutic to laugh about what is now behind us to ease some of the tension.

We're not laughing at a fascist for his fascistic behaviour. I can honestly say that I am laughing in the knowledge that someone will get his comeuppance, bigtime, starting very soon.

As soon as we read the first line we all KNEW it was a "King of the Road" parody. Or am I assuming too much?

There is also "I went to a Pardon Party"

It's on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG0_t7qYr2c by Rocky Mountain Mike
I copied about half the words:

I went to a pardon party to get off with my crook friends
A chance to make Trump's legacy, and make it stink again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
Trump he recognized me, cause we're both insane
Because he's Alt-right now, he didn't learn his lesson well
You see, he can't spring everybody, so he wants to spring himself

People came from miles around, [they] all paid to be there,
Bannon brought his fat ass, there was MAGA's in the air
over in the corner, much to my surprise,
Mr Rudy, trying to get in good, he brought a phoney Nobel prize

because he's Alt-right now ...
He can't spring everyone So he wants to spring himself
...

there are also suggested lines and verses in the comments on youtube

---------------------
but the U.S. has a new administration and I think it is probably time for songsters to move on as well
