Subject: RE: Songs for the Age of Trump
From: Neil D

TRUMPSONG

To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
I ain't about to bite my tongue, I've got too much to say.

Your president's a criminal, as if you weren't aware,
My president will sell us out to please the Russian bear,
Our president is treasonous, the Senate doesn't care,
There's plenty in the sloppin' trough for they can get their share.

America is for the rich, as if you couldn't tell,
Our government works for the rich, the rest can go to Hell,
Good healthcare is for the rich and I ain't feelin' well,
There's corruption in the capital, a stench that you can smell.

If your mama was a Mexican then Trump won't have you here,
If your father practiced Islam then Trump won't have you here,
If you're L or G or B or T then Trump won't have you near,
It's homogenized conformity that keeps you in the clear.

To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
I ain't about to shut my mouth, I've got too much to say.

Compassion truth and fair play have come under attack,
I think that it's about time we took our country back,
So never vote for anyone who's got a superpac,
And if the tax cut's only for the rich, give them bums the sack.

If a program helps the suffering, it's going to get the sack,
There is viciousness in politics that goes right to the top,
If they don't like a question, they give the questioner a pop,
But you and I know what do, to make this madness stop.

If your machine is out of whack, you give it one big thump,
If you're going to drain the DC swamp, you'll need a mighty pump,
If you want to make this county great again, first get rid of Trump,
And take those others of his ilk and send them to the dump.

To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
You ain't about to hold me back, I've got too much to say.

Do you suppose the one per cent react with glee and mirth,
While they're making obscene fortunes from the rape of mother earth,
They,ve been greedy piglets from the moment of their birth,
Nothing matters to them but their personal net worth.

And they're making filthy lucre off the backs of the working poor,
They think that's what us commoners were put on this Earth for,
No matter how much wealth accrued, they think that they need more,
Why if there's a dollar to be made, they'll even stat a war.

Koch brothers and Walton's and Haliburton too,
They think they own the government, and I suppose they do,
But we need to take it back from them and tell them they are through,
Cause Woody taught me that this land was made for me and you.

To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
To go along to get along has never been my way,
I ain't about to bite my tongue, or shut my mouth or be held back,
I've got to... much to... say.

Tim Radford

GOD AND THE ORANGE CLOWN
(Ian Robb)

When your forests turn to ash,
When your fields all turn to dust,
When your islands are awash,
How will you choose; who will you trust?
When the mudslides hurtle down,
Who will you turn to for recourse?
When your greens all fade to brown,
Who will you blame; who will you curse?

And still you go to church to pray,
Leaving your children to atone.
This world youíve left in disarray
Is not Godís work; it is your own.

When tornados wreck your town,
When the tempest scours your coast,
Will you still heed the Orange Clown,
Will you still cheer his every boast?
When itís time to make your choice,
Whose truth, whose lies will you believe?
Will you ignore the braying voice?
Will you refuse to be deceived?

Or will you go to church to pray,
Leaving your children to atone?
This world youíve left in disarray
Is not Godís work; it is your own.

When at last the seas run dry
And when rocks melt in the sun
And when you can no more deny,
Then youíll see what you have done.

Yet still you go to church to pray,
Leaving your children to atone,
This world youíve left in disarray
Is not Godís work; it is your own.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE DAY DEMOCRACY DIED
From: Joe Offer
Date: 15 Feb 20 - 04:34 PM

"The Day Democracy Died" Sung by The Founding Fathers:
Very clever photo editing.

An excerpt:

A long long time ago
A Tuesday in November
When that sinking feeling laid us low
And we knew if he had his way
That weíd all live to curse the day
When decency received a fatal blow

His bankruptcies got no attention
Pussy-grabbing ó barely mentioned
Promising a great wall
He swore to make tax rates fall

I still remember how I tried
To have sympathy for his third bride
But something rumbled deep inside
The day democracy died
but...

No, donít let democracy die
Heís a famous ignoramus ó canít tell truth from a lie
And if he wins weíll kiss our country goodbye
Singiní vote for anyone but this guy
Vote for anyone but this guy



And I have to say that I still have sympathy for the third bride - Free Melania!

Subject: Lyr Add: DANCING REVOLUTION
From: GUEST,crowlibrarian
Date: 11 Feb 20 - 07:26 PM

May as well add one of those I've penned -
Dancing Revolution
Dancing revolution (1-30-2020) key of G
      G                                                   C                                 G
Itís troubled times we live in, thereís troubled times weíve known
G                                              A7                        D
Troubled times in Washington, troubled times at home
                  G                                                    C                               G
This might help us not to lose hope, when we see more wrong than right
                      C                         G                              D                           G
Cause thereís plenty of troubles all around, (thereís) plenty of ways to fight

chorus:
C                                  G
We can dance, create a dancing revolution
             D                              G               G7
We can sing, singing out for joy and for change
             C                                                       G
Thereís much that I am sad/mad about, sometimes I want to drink and pout
       D                                             D7                         G
But Iíll be damned if those assholes (bullies) have their way

Thereís danger in the White House, a bully and a liar
Heíll grab you, hurt you, smear your name, heíll set this world on fire
Itís up to us to stand strong, resist all that we can
Help those in need, take to the streets, and hereís some more to plan

We can danceÖ.

This planetís needs to cool down and thereís babies thrown in jail
Drones and bombs kill families, thereís poisons in our wells
Millions work in poverty, the well-to-do donít care
Thereís lots to do, but party too, so itís not just a nightmare

When you can danceÖ

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BALLAD OF ONE-TERM DONALD
From: GUEST,the og
Date: 10 Feb 20 - 11:13 AM

The Ballad of One-Term Donald orÖLetís Go No Trump
Bill Ogden (2020)        Tune = ďSon of a GambolierĒ (perhaps best recognized as ďRambliní Wreck from Georgia TechĒ or ďCome On and Join the Air ForceĒ)

Donald Trump took to the stump and stole the U.S.A.
Heíd rave and vent as President ítil kindness went away.
In time his Cabínet hosted only shill and níer-do-well,
Trump behaved as Putin craved; the country went to hell.

Donaldís wall, as I recall, became his shining star,
Olí Mike Pence sat on his fence assenting from afar.
Take back your huddled masses, our doors are tightly shut,
No peace in sight unless youíre white; thatís the scuttlebutt.

Milania, her ma and pa, all called Slovenia home,
As immigrants they got their chance beneath the golden dome.
And now that they are settled, forget about the rest,
Just buy those frocks with cash from stocks and struggle to be best.

Donald ran Republican and took the party down,
McConnellíd back up Donald as he shut the Senate down.
Their only legislation, a tax break for the few,
Don and Mitch, hey, lifeís a bitch; too bad for me and you.

Trump tried and tried, some say he lied, to get dirt on his foes,
Though quite in vain Ukrainian pressure points were chose.
Alas, the more he meddled, the worse it would become,
There you go, itís quid pro quo, time to depose the bum.

Tragically magical, the process came unwound,
By house impeached, by Senate breached, consensus was not found.
A trial without witnesses seems to me uncouth,
Party line was, by design, more powerful than truth.

Now you and I can mount a try to make our country whole,
All it takes for all our sakes is eyes upon the goal.
Donít leave the job to others, keep liberty afloat,
Avoid those ruts get off your butts letís all get out and vote.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' BACK
From: Mossback
Date: 21 Jun 19 - 11:12 AM

"I wrote these lyrics within half an hour of seeing Donald Trump's inaugural speech last Friday evening and played it in Salisbury that night. With apologies to Bob Dylan."


Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that the waters around you have grown
And accept it that soon youíll be drenched to the bone
For the climate is obviously changing
But the man in the White House says no ones to blame
For the times they are a changin back

Come Mexicans, Muslims, LGBT and Jews
Keep your eyes wide for whatís on the news
For President Trump is expressing his views
And I feel that the mob heís inciting
Will soon break your windown
And burn down your schools
For the times they are a changin back

Come mothers and daughters throughout the land
A bunch of old men have come up with a plan
Never mind your ambitions they have better ideas
How you should be behaving
So get back in the kitchen and button your lip
For the times they are a-changing back

In the land of the free and the home of the brave
Martin Luther King is spinning in his grave
To see a bigoted bully taking the stage
And he calls upon us to be faithful
To the ideas he died for in another age
For the times they are a-changing back

The line it is drawn and the curse it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the prison now will later be past
Letís hold on to that idea for a moment
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they need a changin.

Subject: Lyr Add: HEY THERE MELANIA (Sebastian Durfee)
From: GUEST,Kristoffer Ross
Date: 09 Mar 18 - 05:05 PM

This was written, or at least co-written, by my good acquaintance Sebastian Durfee.
    To the Tune of ďHey there Delilah,Ē by the Plain White Tís, apparently. I donít know, for certain, Iím not up on Rock music.
    Enjoy,
Kristoffer

Hey there, Melania

Hey there, Melania, whatís it like in New York City,
Iíve been living here in Washington and Damn, this house is shitty,
Yes, itís true,
Trump tower has a better view,
Itís huger too.

Hey there Melania, I know times are getting hard,
ĎCuz first with Bowling Green, now Sweden,
Weíre not safe in our own yard,
Weíll build a wall,
Weíll make it 50 stories tall,
No fun at all,

Oh, Itís 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 ďthe ApprenticeĒ
Iím alone,
Why donít the Children ever phone,
Iím on my own.

Hey there Melania, Iíve got so much stuff to do,
Why did I make so many promises, Iíll never follow through,
Itís just the worst,
Pence keeps reminding me to work,
Heís such a jerk.

Oh, Itís lonely in D.C. (four times)

I said Iíd make things great again, now here I am in Washington,
I really only did it for the fame
I didnít read the overview, thereís actually a job to do,
I miss when this was only just a game,
Melania, I admit to you, I clearly didnít think this through,
I really thought my life would stay the same,
But now itís lame.

Hey there Melania, you be good and donít you miss me,
Four more years and Iíll be home again, and back to winning bigly,
Wait and see,
Just four more years and Iíll be free,
I wonít be stuck here in D.C.

Hey there Melania, hereís to me,
Itís only me.
Oh, Itís lonely in D.C. (five times)
    Repeat refrain on a ďWoaĒ 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

Give me your hungry, your tired your poor I'll piss on 'em
That's what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let's club 'em to death
And get it over with and just dump 'em on the boulevard

Get 'em out, on the dirty boulevard
Going out, to the dirty boulevard
They're going down, on the dirty boulevard
Going out

    -Lou Reed- Dirty Boulevard.

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.
