Donald Trump – Just a “Cheek Squeak in the Wind”

In light of yesterdays testimony by my fellow Yonkers native James Comey, I feel compelled to say goodbye to Donald Trump. Sure, he’s still the president and very well may be for the next four years (doubtful) but I feel compelled to sing him a swan song – figuratively anyway. Oh, and I’ll add this, if Richard Nixon were alive he’d probably be making huge “WTF” signs, knowing full well he’d still be in office despite Watergate. Anyway, enough. Let’s get with my attempt at being funny. Here’s my version of “Candle in the Wind” – an ode to “The Donald.” Hey, Elton John’s rewritten the lyrics I might as well.

Goodbye Donald Trump…

Though we never knew you at all You had no grace to contain yourself And Clinton voters around you bawled Your voters crawled out of the woodwork And the Russians whispered into your brain They set you on the campaign trail And you said you’d build a wall

And it seems to me you lived your life Like a cheek squeak in the wind Shifting the blame of where the smell came from When the stench set in And I would have liked to have like you But you’re a lying, woman-bashing, Muslim-hating, egotistical, orange kid Your candle burned out shortly after Hardly anyone saw you sworn in

Quitting The Apprentice was tough The toughest move you ever made We thought you’d try to defeat ISIS But weekend golf was the price we paid Even when you lied Oh the press still hounded you All the papers (and everyone) had to say Was there was no wiretapping, stop Tweeting, and Donald was not telling the truth

[CHORUS]

Goodbye Donald Trump Though we never knew you at all You had no grace to control yourself And Clinton voters around bawled

Goodbye Donald Trump From Big Bird, that immigrant held at JFK, and the trans kid in the wrong bathroom stall Who sees you as something as less of a president And more of a paranoid reality TV show host

And it seems to me you lived your life…

Like a cheek squeak in the wind

Shifting the blame of where the smell came from

When the stench set in

And I would’ve liked to like you

But you’re a lying, woman-bashing, Muslim hating, egotistical, orange kid (If this were Elton singing, he’d say it like this keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed)

Your candle burned out shortly after

Hardly anyone saw you sworn in
