The Lyrics

Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
Oh Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
You sound so whack saying the things you thought you knew

As he was bloviating over some swill
I heard Tangerine take a swipe at Hill
“A Battle-axe a-rollin’ on the campaign road”
(But) Nothin’ will outrun this bright orange chode
The Battle-axe polling ‘bout Forty-five
Fist pumping while stumping, and calling out his jive

Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
Oh Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
You sound so whack saying the things you thought you knew

Peek in the mirror oh where is Old Hill?
She’s just a waitin’ to move in for the kill
Next thing he heard that Battle-axe shrill
Comin’ for the Tange Man and gaining fast was that old Hill
Muslim slur, a campaign wreck
Tange and that Battle-axe neck and neck

Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
Oh Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
You sound so whack saying the things you thought you knew

The Battle-axe polls out ahead with a roar
Tange Man got hot and won't debate no more
He then got pouty and he started to flame,
She’s tooting her horn, he was passing blame
Insane blabber spewin’ all over the 'hood
He thought that was doing the voter good

Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
Oh Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
You sound so whack saying the things you thought you knew

The voting was sound, defeat went down
And that’s when we saw that Tange Man frown
The Battle-axe had hit him like a ton of lead
A hundred and ten ‘lectoral votes ahead
The Battle-axe reigning like her husband Bill
‘Cuz she beat Tangerine he couldn’t stop old Hill

Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
Oh Tangerine, I can’t vote for you
You sound so whack saying the things you thought you knew

Another good one! It's good that we have a couple of candidates that are easy to parody . . .

Well done-555! Someone from the news called Trump an evil orange Muppet during the primary. Maybe you could use that?
