-> "Post-Election Coming Down"
Original Song Title:
"Sunday Morning Coming Down" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
"Post-Election Coming Down"
Well, I woke up Wednesday mornin'
With my FaceBook page consumed with disbelief.
And I went through all the stages. Felt depressed.
Then angry. Stupid. Back to grief.
Then I ate three pints of Ben and Jerry's--
Yeah, I know, but damn, that stuff is sweet!
And I kicked my dog, and shaved my cat, and
Called up all my Muslim friends all day.
The fact that Hillary won more votes, somehow
It doesn't make defeat less bitter.
And I'm tryin' to fight the cynical idea that our
Republic's down the shitter.
And I notice that our President-elect
Has been let off his leash on Twitter!?
So I shut down all my social media accounts
And joined the crowds out in the streets.
On the post-election talk shows
Pundits' minds severely blown!
KKK is celebratin',
Clinton smashed his saxophone!
And through fears and tears and sighin',
Still I'm lifted by this sound:
On the streets a million marchers:
Post-election comin' down.
In the park I saw a lady
With tamales and burritos she was sellin'.
And I passed a local farm that had to plow
Up all their strawberries and melons.
Then I headed back for home and I was just
In time to catch J. Law on "Ellen"!
And it made me proud to see two women
Standin' up for lesbians and gays.
All the late night comic monologues
Reachin', stretchin' for a joke--
Got to feel bad for Obama
'Cause his legacy's been smoked!
Still there's one small consolation,
If the planet's still around:
2020's not that far off--
Donald Trump is goin' down.
