That’s Trump

He came down from heaven on a golden escalator
He's the voice of the people, he's a job creator
Got a secret plan for Isis that he'll -- tell you later
That's Trump

Well he came from New York City where his daddy got him goin'
With some nice apartment buildings and a million dollar loan
Now he treats the Oval Office like another thing to own
That's Trump

Got a chief strategist quoted praising Satan
And a basket of deplorables who spend their lives hatin'
You wanna see his tax returns, you're gonna do some waitin'
That's Trump

Well he's a little fuzzy on the Constitution
Got a taste for some early morning Twitter retribution
Has the alt-right itchin' for the final solution
That's Trump

Well he's got a reputation for stiffing his contractors
He likes to insult women, the press, and his detractors
And he don't take no lip from hammy Broadway actors
That's Trump

People of America
Democracy depends on you
If we all resist this madness
Together we might turn the tide

Well his financial entanglements are a little hairy
His efforts at diplomacy have all been pretty scary
Got a cabinet reminds me of Doctor Caligari
That's Trump

He's got buddies in the NRA whose one issue is shootin'
And climate change deniers who aim to keep pollutin'
But he's got a special fondness for his BFF named Putin
That's Trump

Well, he'd probably like to strangle him some folk singers
Who poke his fragile ego with their clever zingers
But I don't think he could do it with those tiny little fingers
That's Trump
