Written by Bill Mishler

lyrics

He could hasten the end
Does this man have one friend?
How many millions could die?
With The Button close by?

Now take a very sad man
Who's got a very mad plan
He'll slash taxes for the wealthy
But says the minimum wage isn't healthy

He rode a tide of fake news
Steve Bannon hates blacks and Jews
Four-hundred million bucks in buildings and land
His rich daddy passed into his greedy hands

A vain, preening divider
Accidentally elected as we lost our way
A dog-whistle blower and con man
Honest Abe and Ike turn over in their graves

A gang of ignorant hacks
With alternative facts
He says he's very good at business
Mr. BankTRUMPcy, that is nonsense

He'll send our kids into hell
Just another big sell
He sees nothing but chaos and crisis
Even though Obama's bombed the hell out of ISIS

A vain, preening divider
Accidentally elected as we lost our way
A dog-whistle blower and con man
Honest Abe and Ike turn over in their graves

This sabre rattler has some nerve
During 'Nam he never served
His deferments numbered five
As 58,000 of our guys lost their lives

Folks ripped off at Trump U
Steaks as tender as a shoe
Our fearless leader, Moe Howard
A stooge, a hypocrite and a coward

A vain, preening divider
Accidentally elected as we lost our way
A dog-whistle blower and con man
Honest Abe and Ike turn over in their graves

For power, he's got the itch
Putin's made him his bitch
Ruskie hackers got Hillary’s goat
She’s up 3 million in the popular vote

Born in the lap of luxury
He's not like you and me
A lifetime waited on hand and foot
He wants to give 11 million people the boot

A vain, preening divider
Accidentally elected as we lost our way
A dog-whistle blower and con man
Honest Abe and Ike turn over in their graves

Bin Laden's no longer  free
Stocks and jobs are on a spree
Our deficit has radically shrunk
But the orange man says it's all bunk

This prep school boy is a chicken-hawk
From the school of soft knocks
His shock 'n' awe could be frightening
As long as somebody else does the fighting


A vain, preening divider
Accidentally elected as we lost our way
A dog-whistle blower and con man
Honest Abe and Ike turn over in their graves
