The Lyrics

OS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iaR3WO71j4 Op-ed: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opinion/trump-white-house-anonymous-resistance.html
There’s a man who’s penned a secret writing.
Although he hates his job, he stays in-fighting.
Because he dropped a dime
To failing New York Times,
Odds are, he won’t have his job tomorrow.

Secret Op-Ed Man!
Secret Op-Ed Man!
They’re giving him a platform,
But hiding away his name.

His fealty to his boss is rather hazy.
He calls him Mr. Prez, but thinks he’s crazy!
Oh, he’ll steal an unsigned bill
So to thwart the Prez’s will,
Hoping he won’t lose his job tomorrow.

Secret Op-Ed Man!
Secret Op-Ed Man!
He’s doing quite a number
Besmirching The Leader’s name.

(instrumental break)

Secret Op-Ed Man!
Secret Op-Ed Man!
Or it could be a woman
Who’s hiding away her name.

Colbert says it’s writ’ in Pence’s language,
But to Trump, they may as well be speaking Spanglish.
Oh, Don, why won’t you ask yourself
Why they’ve put you on the shelf,
And why they hope you’ll quit your job tomorrow?

Secret Op-Ed Man!
Secret Op-Ed Man!
The 25th Amendment
Could be tak’n’ away your bane…!

Secret Op-Ed Man!

I used to think it was either John Kelly or Ivanka, but now I think it's a group effort by a majority of the staff.

This is a good song to spoof: catchy melody, easy to sub lyrics. I did one called "Johnny Rivers Tributes Carlos Danger"
