The Lyrics

If you are innocent and have nothing to hide, why do you need attorneys for $1000 an hour??? The entire Trump staff is "lawyering up" so that when Bob Mueller brings the hammer down, they will not be caught without a way to lie their way out of it.
I can't believe the shit that's coming out
Republicans must just be bumming out
Between the White House leaks and all the late-night tweets
There are the smarter ones who feel the heat
and admit they lied by lawyering up

Trump sent Steve Bannon out to shake things up.
The news at six o'clock says "There you are, he screwed it up"
More facts from CNN;, more lies on Fox & Friends
Laugh at Sean Hannity while he defends
Jared Kushner's chance for lawyering up

Last night we heard more news from Washington, the den of lies
Jeff Sessions denied that he had any talks... with Russian spies
With all this gloom & doom.....standoffs with Kim Jong Un
And I heard that Trump and his cronies will all have soon
started making plans for lawyering up

I gave you a 5-5-5 out of pity. You're obviously playing to the wrong crowd here, but you know that already.

555 for squeezing in the topicality, although you gotta admit, all of the literal and metaphorical heavy original lyrics are still woefully relevant.

There's no "crowd" here, Charlie -- just one voter downvoting multiple times

If you are innocent and have nothing to hide, why do you need attorneys at, like, a gorillion per hour .. the man asks. I dont know ... why dont we ask the Duke lacrosse team or George Zimmerman, or all the cops in Baltimore who were maliciously prosecuted, or the operators of day care centers who were railroaded into prison on fantastic tales of child abuse back in the Seventies. They were completely innocent and had nothing to hide, so why did they lawyer up? ....... It's obvious, because they were GUILTY!! The very fact that they tried to defend themselves proves they were guilty; why else would they be defending themselves??

Great parody, everyone who gave you 1s is probably just an offended Republican.
