The Lyrics

Several Republican Electors who meet today (12/19/2016) may refuse to vote for Donald J. Trump, fearing he may carry out some of the extreme policies of his presidential campaign. I used the original lyrics of this querying love ballad that he might sing to them.
If more tons of carbon foul the skies;
If the sea should stubbornly arise;
If I govern, freely govern,
Let it happen. I won't care.

If a Dreamer's family must part,
I can still deport them, 'cause I'm smart.
If I govern, freely govern,
Bet it happens, far-flung, I will swear.

Should I catch a terrorist,
I can sting him scared, inquist,
If attorneys say that's fair.
I can make jihadists crawl;
I'll hold Saudi kings in thrall,
As long as crude's our share.

When at last my second term is through,
I will chair Trump Properties anew.
If I've governed, freely governed,
Let shit happen. Earthlings, I won't care.

I submitted this at 0730 EST, too late to precede the voting. Trump went over 270; his total is TBA January 6.

Latest report shows 2 Republican and 4 Democrat defectors, so Trump may win by 304 to 228, a 4 to 3 ratio.

In line 6, " 'cause I'm smart" could be " cross my heart" (and hope to die, an archaic expression of commitment.

It was 304 to 228. Trump won again! Yay Trump! Love the news coverage of the woman who cried "you sold our country out!" In Texas. I think she was also sobbing! But it was the Democrats that sabotaged Bernie and Hillary that lost. No message, lower turnout. Stop blaming the FBI, the Russians, and now the electors!

555 for the parody, but I have a question as well. Why do write your parodies and then in the thread suggest ways you could have substituted lines? As far as I am concerned, your parodies are fine the way they are!

@PR: HRC actually got 227 (1 abstention).
@RA: I'm a neurotic perfectionist who rushed this in before breakfast yesterday. Thanks for the kind comment.
