TRUMPIAN PARODY TUNES – Lyrical Agitprop Updates for Cabaret & The Producers

Tinkle Tinkle

 

Tinkle, tinkle little tzar

Putin put you where you are

Up above the law so high

In your penthouse tweeting lies

Tinkle, tinkle little tzar

Putin put you where you are

 

Last night, at a meeting of concerned citizens eager to get politically engaged to stand up for our values, our concerns and the America we believe in, sheets of agitprop parody lyrics were passed around to close the meeting with a lighthearted yet pointed singalong.  Provided by Jessica Agullo and John Collins, who run the website NastyWomanStuff, these lyrics (in addition to the nursery rhyme above) very cleverly repurpose songs from the musicals “Cabaret” and “The Producers” that in their original form already made rather pointed comments about the politics of 1930’s Germany, an era whose echoes are reverberating rather too loudly again.

I’ll include recordings of the original as hum-along references for the parody lyrics:

The Power Belongs to Me

to the tune of “Tomorrow Belongs to Me” from “Cabaret”

 

The blonde in the pageant, deflower’d in her youth

The wolf in the white house runs free

We gather together to TRUMP the truth

The power belongs to me!

 

Our great constitution is weak and it’s flawed

It need to be trashed as you’ll see

It’s time that it’s handled just like a broad

Whose pussy belongs to me!

 

I spend my days tweeting alternative facts

I run off with Putin to pee

But no way am I gonna release my tax

The truth now belongs to me!

 
 

Springtime for Donald

to the tune of “Springtime for Hitler” from “The Producers”

 

USA had lost its luster

Losers, carnage, mayhem

Needed a new golden leader

Make it great again

producers

 

Oh who could that man be?

We asked on bended knee

We looked up high into the sky

And found the man we need

And now its…

 

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Bannon’s gin blossoms in bloom

Spice proclaims alternate facts

Watch out here come the Kleptocrats!

 

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Winter for all of Islam

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Trumpanzees come and play with his bomb

 

Our new leader, he’s tremendous

You know him from The Apprentice

 

Help us make our country greater

Join the Donald, be a hater

 

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Racists are safest again

Stay tuned for the next episode

Now that he’s got the nuclear code

 

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Crusades and drone raids once more

 

Springtime for Donald in Washington

Means that he might be starting…

He’s probably starting…

You know he’ll be starting a war!
