"I'll Get to Stick it to You"

Parody Written by:

Barry J. Mitchel

The Lyrics

In these four stanzas, which were repeated in TOS from the musical Anything Goes by Cole Porter, I sketch four disparate aspects of the 44th U.S. president.
I get my kicks from campaigns;
Here, [1] protocol doesn't thrill me at all.
Don't tell me I shouldn't skeet shoot;
When I get that kick, shout and hoot!

Some get their kicks from slow trains; [2]
I'm sure that if I looked over one cliff,
That would bore me terrific'ly blue.
Set my bet on slick fast choo-choo. [3]

I get a kick every time I see poor
Standing where there's more free.
I get a kick 'cause it's clear to me,
They're obviously rooting for me.

I get to pick who is slain;
Flying so high with drone eye in the sky
Is my sly way of bidding adieu;
Bet I'll get to stick it to you. [4]

[1] Back in D.C.
[2] e.g., scenic Western routes
[3] e.g., the proposed central-California "train to nowhere"
[4] U.S. citizens too

In line 4, I'd change "that kick" to (rifle) "butt kick" but not "butt kicked".
Excerpt from my 2008 parody of most Presidential Primary candidates:

I get no kick from Hussein;
Barack will quack, "We'll get back in the black,
"Using jack-boots to sack just rich few."
But I fret he'll nick all of you.

Now I get so sick; it's come true.

BJM - Every time he speaks, he does give us the same old schtick. That's close enough. Well said as usual. ;D

OMR: Thanks; another tweak is to end line 11 with "see" instead of "me".

Thanks... my funny bone needed a little poli-tickling this morning!

Love it -- great work as usual, Barry. I'll just have to imagine the speech tonight, as I'll be too busy to watch. This is the night I have to clean the computer monitor screens. . .

Thanks, TJC & Dana. @Dana: You can live-stream SOTU speech on your monitors. Spray on the Windex, but delay wiping it off until afterward. ;^)

Every World Leader needs a parody-style kickin' every so often - it's character-building for them :^) Short but sweet satirical goodness - 555.
