The Lyrics

Lies, I get so lost, sometimes
Days pass and this emptiness fills my head
Social distance? I don't get too far
Wanna play golf today
But I gotta play the star

In the pressroom
See the fake news goons
Then all my instincts, they return
And the grand facade, see it burn
With lots of noise, and excessive pride
I disinfect from the inside

In your lies
The light the heat
Your lies
They are complete
Your lies
I see thousands dead
In your lies
The fruitless Fed
Your lies
I see the light and the heat
In your lies
Oh, I wanna swill that bleach
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your lies

Folks, I am insane
So much wasted hype
And another term to gain
So I air my gripes
And tell my lies
Working against your survival
Oh, I have the blues
All that fake news

In your lies
I see thousands dead
In your lies
The fruitless Fed
Your lies
The light and the heat
In your lies
Oh, I want to swill that bleach
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your lies

This is an excellent parody of a great PG classic that scored the charts in the 80s in 2 different forms TWO TIMES. Great job putting down stupid TV 'news' and the Spankee Boy McDonald Treason Incest Iscariot too. However, I would NOT play this parody song with THESE lyrics on a boombox to serenade Diane Court / Ione Skye.

Wow, Trump-haters are so delusional now that they don't realize this song's about THEM.
