The Lyrics

Voters, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
I get careless with security to avoid transparency
When I get caught I feel real bad
I'm just a soul who keeps getting deposed
Oh Lord, please don't let my emails be exposed

Voters, sometimes I mask concerns
But I have something to hide
I make up a reason, not to release my tax returns
Cause then you're bound to see my other side
I'm just a Trump who won’t share what I could
Can’t face more scrutiny of my livelihood

If we seem edgy, we’re afraid you know
We didn’t act impartially like you presume
Bernie has problems, that we wished to share
Because we want to sway who votes for whom
Oh DNC, Oh

Voters, oh voters - I had no other choice
After Bridgegate I was in a slump
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regretting
That I was first, publicly to come out for Trump
I'm just a soul who didn’t do what I should
Oh Lord, now my career may be gone for good

Yes, I’m just a soul who’s a politician
Oh Lord, I need help to avoid detection
Yes, I’m just a soul with intentions not good
Oh Lord, don’t let me be hacked by Russian hoods
Yes, I just a soul who’s a politician

You should check out the cover version of this song by my favorite musical artist of all time, Mr. Elvis Costello. His version appears on his 1986 album "The Costello Show: King Of America."

You've got some ability Lucy. Your first parody actually had a couple of pacing errors, but I didn't feel like being a pacing ogre and calling you out on it. This one is error free as near as I can tell .. and it's quite good.

nice one Lucy! it covers both sides which I like! personally I'm hoping Trump gets in the White House rather than Killery... I mean Hillary... but still if we can't laugh at ourselves once in a while ya know? 5's

I really like the even-handedness of treatment in the lyrics and the overall literary quality of it. Nice job!

I am new to this and really appreciate everyone’s comments and encouragement. It takes me WAY more time to edit the song for the pacing than to write the initial lyrics. So it’s helpful to know when I get it right (as well as when I don’t). I enjoyed listening to the Elvis Costello version, thanks for the tip. Finally, I was glad for the affirmation that my decision to showcase politicians from both parties worked for this song.

Well done, Lucy. Imagine if we could get Eric Burdon to sing it. Glad to have helped inspire a parody sensation.
