#votenotothehair

Friends, Neighbors, Fellow Countrymen;

I have been watching the trail of woe, a.k.a. the presidential campaign.  At first I thought it was kind of a joke and I snickered.  Then, as things progressed and votes began to be counted, my eyebrows raised in concern.  More speeches have been  given, more debates held, and I have realized that I have been holding in a sort of silent scream that goes something like this:

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS DECENT AND GOOD, WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE DO SOMETHING TO STOP THAT VULGAR MAN FROM TAKING OVER THE PRESIDENCY OF MY BELOVED COUNTRY!!

I realized something needs to be done.  Time for little old me to do my part.  Because I like to write songs and I knew this one must be “the hilarious, witty, intelligent, patriotic and true anti-you-know-who song that would save America from making a terrible mistake,” I texted Maren for help.

(of course, I did, right?  because she’s totally awesome and rocking and has the answer to ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.)

After a frenzy of texts, emails, and general hilarity, we came up with a nice little ditty for y’all. (that’s right, we went country).

Maren wasn’t with me to join in singing for the video (WHY OH WHY DON’T WE LIVE NEXT DOOR TO EACH OTHER), but I know she sang along with me in her heart and I hope you will, too. ♥

Lyrics for your sing along:

#VOTENOTOTHEHAIR

Verse 1

It’s 2016, the year of the vote,

and we’re all a part of the game

we’re wearing the shirts and watching the news,

the candidates are all pretty lame

One guy stands out and

I’m sure you’ll agree

we can’t look away from the scene-

the money, the hair, and the circus around

the guy who grew up in Queens

Chorus

So wake up America

and just vote no

to the guy with the terrible hair

vote no to short fingers,

to riches and lies,

Wake up and vote no to the hair!

Verse 2

He has no excuse,

No style, no views

but we don’t let that slow us down

we like a good show and this guy is a pip

He’s a rich and colorful clown

We must stand up and I’m sure you’ll agree

We can laugh all we want at the clown,

but he does not represent our American land,

this guy who is bringing us down.

Chorus

Verse 3

He’s rightist, he’s leftist, he’s building a wall,

He’s hoping we’re all dumb as bricks,

He hates us, he loves us, he’s suing us all

He’s up to his usual tricks

For 12 long years, he says the IRS

checked on him because he’s a Christian man

it makes me shake my head

and it makes me wonder if

he’s a few beans short of a can

Chorus

Verse 4

We’ve all stood for freedom with our hand on our hearts

Our memories full of the pride

that comes from being part

of the brightest and the best

We won’t trade it or set it aside

We must stand up and I’m sure you’ll agree

We can laugh all we want at the clown,

but he does not represent our American land,

this guy who is bringing us down.

Chorus

So wake up America

and just vote no

to the guy with the terrible hair

vote no to short fingers,

to riches and lies,

Wake up and vote no to the hair!
