Write a new verse about Trump to an old Phil Ochs song.
Quote | Reply
Last weekend I went to the Huntington Folk Festival and I can tell you that protest songs are alive and well but they're mostly kind of wimpy. These young people have a lot to learn.

So I thought I would go to the master; Phil Ochs and revive one of his songs; ''Here's to the State of Richard Nixon''. He originally wrote it as ''Here's to the State of Mississippi'' during the civil rights movement and revised it during the Nixon days.

So I went to YouTube and found that I wasn't the first to think of this;

I'll bet that Phil Ochs would be thrilled to see what's been done with his song. I especially like the one that gives a verse to the different members of the Trump administration.


So far I've come up with two verses (thank you to the person who posted the tweet about Scaramucci);


And here's to the week of Scaramucci
Your wife left you because you did it all wrong
Your buddy Donny fired, it didn't take too long
All you need is your dog to die and you'll be a perfect country song!

Oh, here's to the land you tore out the hear of
Donald Trump go find another country to be part of


This morning, while running I got;

And here's to the laws of Donald Trump
......................................................................
......................................................................
................................t...........here aren't any!

Oh, here's to the land you tore out the heart of
Donald Trump go find another country to be part of



So help me out here. What can you come up with?

Anyone who rhymes Sweeney with Weinee will get kick out. I haven't heard that one since third grade!

Thank you Phil Ochs!

And here's to the Klan of Donald Trump

David Duke rallies to ''fulfill the promise of Trump''

Same as Donny's father, on the KKK stump (google it)

When will they all realize, you're treating them as chumps?

Oh, here's to the land you're tearing out the heart of

Donald Trump, go find yourself another country to be part of!
