Not Our President

This song was written in protest of the current US President.


-----( verse )------------------------------------
On the eighth of November
we elected a sex offender

Our sheriff has a tarnished badge
and dark visions of crime and carnage

Please return this man to sender
back to the Russian lender

Those of us who can smell a rat
see this president as illegitimate

-----( verse )------------------------------------
It's a country of immigrants
where else would we have learned to dance

Now good people who’ve come to this land
are being whisked away in a van

Tossing aside our democracy
with unabashed hypocrisy

Say a prayer for the befriender
and count me in as a defender

-----( verse )--------------------------------------
Forget about those in need
this is an election of corporate greed

Dreaming up another Muslim travel ban
while hitting golf balls into sand

Now is not the time to be content
none of us are exempt

We stand together in opposition
and are poised for a revolution

-----( verse )--------------------------------------
There's a national resentment
to the kind of world you represent

There will be no retreat
with millions of people marching in the street

You'll recall until the day you’re done
the other candidate actually won

Let’s get on with the impeachment
because you are not our president
