The Lyrics

When he looks out on the world and has seen
dictators in countries who’re thuggish and mean,
it makes him real happy, he wants to be their kind.
He’s off to a good start because he has a like mind.

He likes the bad autocrats,
though they’re completely no good.
He loves Putin’s ways, the crimes do not faze.
He’d be like that if he easily could.

Yeah he likes the bad autocrats;
living democracy ain’t where it’s at.
He digs Erdogan who is really quite malign.
And like dictators he’s shifty, it’s indeed a bad sign.

He doesn’t read books, but he is a tweeting fiend.
He hires stooges and doesn’t even have them screened.
He had a racist gnome that was a stooge and fool.
With his ho's he just loves ’em to pour, the “golden" rule.”

He’s got a new homeboy causing great alarm;
it’s that killing Kimmy boy with murder in his heart.
And there's Duterte who sends thugs to blow
away folks at will; due process, no

he likes the bad autocrats,
Though they’re completely no good.
He loves Putin’s ways, it ain't just a phase.
He’d be like that if he easily could

Yeah he likes the bad autocrats,
so he cozied up to a killing rat.
He digs dictators who are extremely malign.
Kisses asses of enemies, stiffs allies, a bad sign.
