The Lyrics

I'm an Independent Voter and vote according to who's the better candidate overall. That said, I don't like either of them this time but despite Hillary's faults, I think she still was the much better option this time so I voted for her. Still can't believe the result
We thought that it was in the bag
We thought she was the one who would lead us
But now election’s come and gone
And we still can’t believe
‘Cause they were really voting
Reps. were really voting there en masse
We were also voting
But we didn’t listen to his hot air gas

It was them who voted for old Trumpy
Was the Reps, what went on in their heads
It was them, even some Independents
It was them, It was them who painted blue states red

Oh, why didn’t they pick her instead

Popular vote was Hillary’s
Even more so than Gore’s in 2000
But somehow it just slipped away
Goes by electorals
‘Cause he had them believing
He had them believing in his lies
But they couldn’t see it
‘Cause of that we’ll get a really rude surprise

Some voters instead voted 3rd party
Sometimes was more than the difference spread
Some voters, they just voted for the clown
It was them, It was them who made purple states red

Oh, they should’ve skipped this one instead

‘Cause they were only playing
They were only playing with fire
They were way too trusting, he acts like he couldn’t be any higher

It was them who forced the cloud of Trumpy

Onto the whole, country for 4 extremely long years
It was them who forced the tears and fears
Only them, the country’s torn in pieces
It was them, who made the blue and purple states red

Oh, too much trust is placed on them
Oh, why’d they nominate him
Oh, what’s going on in their heads
Oh, why didn’t they reject him

555 on the parody. I sympathize, but I was a core supporter. He won because he expanded his base and was the outsider. Hillary counted too much on women and minorities. A big part of the blame on the DEM side was lower turnout when it really counted. To be fair though, Comey's first letter was effective...

Thanks Rob. Hillary still definitely got the popular vote, just wasn't the majority in enough states
