about

These are scary times. but I do believe the tide of history is moving in the right direction. Younger voters are far more likely to be open to gay marriage, reproductive freedom, and compassionate policies toward immigrants and refugees. Fear and intolerance is slowly giving way to love and understanding. PLEASE SHARE THIS SONG with anyone you think would appreciate it. Better yet, give it as a GIFT!

lyrics

HAIL THE COIFFÜHRER

It rhymes with chump
it rhymes with county dump
each word he speaks....leaks
from a sump pump

a bloviating mogul loading xenophobic hate
onto the plate of people hungry for somebody they can blame
PT Barnum would be proud about the one-a-minute crowd and how
he works 'em to a lather with inflammatory blather...

And then there's the 'do, the trademark 'do
combover king, combover king
but here's the thing, here's the thing
that's a misnomer,
it's not a combover,

It's a mad creation
a mad creation
a Dada MOMA installation
a magic puffy forelock
with a crack team working round the clock
as it's teased
and it's sprayed
and it's moussed
and it's blown
and it's blown and blown and blown and blown
and blown and blown and blown and blown
and blown and blown and blown and blown
until it takes on a life of it's own

Attention! All citizens are ordered to remain indoors until law enforcement can contain the large hirsuite life-form now approaching Des Moines

Iowa is gone
as the thing slithers on
Next is New Hampshire and you can be damn sure
it swallows Carolina as it leaves behind a
trail of steaming gel and mousse
The election is coming and the things's still lose.

And the crowd gets loud
as victory seems surer
and crowd shout out,
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!

It rhymes with lump
it rhymes with Forrest Gump
And even if you're simple you should recognize a pimple
on America's rump

A self-made man, a self made man
who once was a lad, a struggling lad
a struggling lad who had it so bad
starting out with nothing but the 40 mil from dad

A political phenomenon
not at all uncommon in the 30's
when in Germany and Italy they rose
modern day Caligulas stoking the Amygdalas
of all angry masses
of the shrinking middle classes

How far can people stick their heads up their asses?

Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
Hail the Coifführer! Hail the Coifführer!
