Fake News Blues

American Delirium

He says that the papers are full of fake news
Dishonest reporters distort points of view
He lies about lying, that much is true
I got the blues
This guy is bad news

He just can’t stop lying, that much we all know
I think he gets off when his Pinocchio grows
He’s got to get even with those who oppose
That’s how it goes
On the fake news show

He’s got an agenda and he’s spreading the word
He’s on a vendetta and he won’t be deterred
The world as he sees it is truly absurd
Every time he opens his mouth he’s flipping us the bird

He can’t tell the difference between fiction and fact
His gigantic whoppers are totally whacked
You know that he’s fakin’ it
It’s all a big act
Between me and you
He’s making fake news


Repeat Bridge

So try to remember it’s all a big lie
There’s no rhyme and no reason, there’s no telling why
Don’t fall for the gaslight
Don’t just lay down and die
When you get the blues
From the real fake news

Don’t fall for the bullshit
Don’t fall for the lies
When you get the blues
From the real fake news

Let’s make America great again
Let’s vote for Donald J. Trump
Get rid of the Muslims and Mexicans
He’ll get us over the hump

Let’s pick a guy who’s a winner
Even though he’s just a beginner
He’s a brilliant hustler and spinner
And nobody’s lackey or chump

Let’s make a deal with the Donald
To once again make our country great
So what if he’s not the best that we got
We can harness the power of hate

Let’s build a wall bigger than China
And make the Mexicans pay
Levy big duties, give ‘em all cooties
The bastards that take jobs away

He can do business with Putin
He’ll stop the leeches from lootin’
He’s not afraid to start shootin’
When losers get in his way

Let’s cancel health care for poor folks
And tear up the deal with Iran
Build a Trump Tower in Cuba
And give atom bombs to Japan

It’s time to bomb North Korea
We’ve had enough of their crap
He’ll ship refugee shias to camps in Crimea
And blow ISIS clear off the map

There’s no time to be empathetic
When so much is just so pathetic
The treatment requires an emetic
So an asshole must be the right choice

Let’s make America great again
Let’s put America first
Tell our allies we’re outta here guys
Unless we get reimbursed

Yes Donald’s the man for America
He’s rich and he’s selfish and bold
That son of a gun, I know he’s the one
‘Cause he knows how to go for the gold

Donald won’t mend any fences
Or worry about his offenses
Ignore the truth of your senses
And swallow the lies that he’s told

The GOP is in trouble
If this is the best they can do
Picking Donald will show how little they know
And prove that they can’t buy a clue

So let’s make America great again
Let’s not vote for Donald J. Trump
If we give the power to the man of the hour
We’ll kick ourselves in the rump
