The Lyrics

The Democrat who barely won Iowa's caucuses and lost big in New Hampshire's primary popular vote may need a rousing song. I chose this college football march because one of her favorite campaign mantras is "I will fight for you!" (I swapped the 5th & 6th lines of stanzas 1 & 2 to fit my lyrics better.)
Senator Clinton: fight, fight, fight,
Democrat whose temper's shrill.
Pal Bernie raised Progressive height,
Stunned the Press she'd had with Bill.
Some fawn, clap, fight to halt bard Bernie's drive.
Won't she be speechy Number Forty-Five? Oh, would she!
Girls to steroid clown won't yield;
They'll fight Trump's might.

[piano riff]

State Secretary: fight, fight, fight;
Impress Dems and your cowed Press, too.
Oh, females, do not let Ms. Clinton down;
She's of stout heartland true.
How she will celebrate her victory!
She shall revive the bold schemes whuppin' TEA (now stalling),
Let fly plots to injure them;
It's might makes right - That's not enough, though.
Fight white flight - And screw Right fiercely;
Fight, Hillary, fight!

Shouldn't fight be replaced with lie for accuracy?

@Marvin: Thanks for the suggestion; you may replace "fight" in the top, 9th and bottom lines if you sing this.

Bernie is more of a man than you'll ever be Mitchel. Your Hillary is a proven liar and the worst Secretary of State ever. Unsecured cell phone, private server, Benghazi. Lying to the families of the dead. She is an abomination and deserves to be locked up in prison. She barely won in Iowa and got her ass kicked in New Hampshire!!! Now, she's pandering to Blacks on Obama's record. Remind me again WHO ran against Obama and WHO ran negative ads against him? Hillary Clinton! Shocker! Bernie Sanders is honest and compelling across the political spectrum. He even takes away women's votes from what could be first female President! Feel the BERN of Bernie Sanders. He's up double digits again! Yay, Bernie!!! Who would have ever thought that twenty-seven dollar campaign contributions could rival Hillary's Super PAC millions and her outrageous speaking fees by special interests? She's owned by Wall St. No respectable and morality-driven Democrat should vote for such a conniving, cold and calculating snake like Hillary. God bless Bernie Sanders.

@The Revolution: What, you think I'm pro-Hillary? I wrote this with the same satirical attitude that Tom Lehrer had about football at Harvard University in 1953. I'd suggest that you read my intro and lyrics again from that perspective. I too feel the BERN, but both are Socialists and I shudder at the examples of Venezuela, Cuba, etc.

To clarify, I'd change line 2 to "Democrat, YOUR temper's shrill." and end line 1 with a period. Then I'd change "speechy" to "screechy" in line 6. The final six lines were to warn readers, not to cheer for her policies and tactics.
