The Lyrics

A wistful rewrite of the American classic, written for the era of Trump.
I hoped for sunshine, a little sunshine
To last for maybe four more years
I wish you cared, Don, how disappointed
I was when you, roused all my fears

The last election, when I went voting
That Hilary gave me a scare
I can only, but imagine
Today if she won fair and square

You are my main man you are presitrump
I love that you are so thickheaded
You don’t need science or intellect
Just rule by whim and bully instead

You promised me, Don, a revolution
A brand new day in old D C
Your border wall, Don, if you don’t build it
A total loser you will be

You are my main man now as presitrump
You make me crazy with all your tweets
I wish you knew, Don, how much I need you
To stop the shootings in all my streets

You told me once, Don, you’d help me out some
With my taxes and retirement
As of today now, all you’ve done, Don
Is flub Trumpcare and kill my environment

You’ve been my main man for some time now
Your son’s colluded with Russians people say
I don’t yet know, Don, ‘bout that inspector
He may rain on your party someday

I still would miss you if you resigned
So, if you please, Don, stay the course
If you’re impeached, Don, then C N N
Would have to find another horse

Are you my main man or an impostor
You have so many indiscretions
With all your issues and misdemeanors
It may be soon that, you were the president

That, you were the president

When those inspectors question your electors
It won’t be long till, you were the president.

It is a bit of a stretch to claim that Trump has killed the environment, but this is good stuff, aRot. And even though "indiscretion" seems to be his middle name, I don't think he has done anything impeachable.
