The Lyrics

WHY’S HE STANDING?

I could not believe just how bad
The state of the Nation is, the worst you’ve had,
Where there are two people running head-to-head,
It’s just a shame there aren’t two other men to stand instead.

I’m hoping that a man will never win,
But look at him, he’s a-coming back again.
He’s had a taste of power when he had his day
But I just want to know why he is standing; wish he’d go away.

Tell me now, why’s he standing after all he’s gone and said,
Not supporting NATO countries, is he really off his head?
Why’s he standing then, I just don’t know
Looking at the aspects of his life, he really ought to go.

Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah
Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah.

What will happen if he goes to win,
You’ll have the same problems all over again.
Your nation needs someone to calm things down
But as things stand it’s just a circus with its head a clown.

Tell me now, why’s he standing after all he’s gone and said,
Not supporting NATO countries, is he really off his head?
Why’s he standing then, I just don’t know
Looking at the aspects of his life, he really ought to go.

Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah
Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah.

Tell me now, why’s he standing after all he’s gone and said,
Not supporting NATO countries, is he really off his head?
Why’s he standing then, I just don’t know
Looking at the aspects of his life, he really ought to go.

Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah
Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah.

Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah
Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah.

Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah
Why’s he standing? Blah, blah, blah.

Dump is still standing because of an abundance of ignorant minds. there can be no other conclusion.

Ignorant minds? Like the ones that knew in early 2020 that Biden was not mentally up to the task of being a dogcatcher's assistant, let alone be leader of the free world? Was our "ignorance" brutally exposed in that recent Press Clownference or WHAT?. I especially liked the part where Biden yelled at a reporter who asked about his mental state .. Because nothing refutes the possibility of dementia than an OLD MAN YELLING!!

To tell the truth, I'm no Biden supporter either. What is frightening you have a potential world leader saying he would support the invasion of a NATO ally.

The answer to your question is simple: he's standing because if he doesn't, or doesn't win, he's going to end up behind bars before very long. His only possible way of staying free is to become president and cause yet another constitutional crisis by pardoning himself (without, of course, ever admitting that he did anything wrong.. which for anyone else would be a prerequisite for receiving a presidential pardon).

That's why he's doing everything in his power to delay all the cases against him until after the election. Well, one reason: another would be the number of independents who would refuse to vote for him if convicted. Strange, he's so obviously guilty of so many things, just from what we already have in the public domain.

..but a fun parody :)
