Things That Go Trump In the Night

Lyrics by: Sally-Alice Thompson with added verse & chorus by Marcy Matasick
Gaggle: New Mexico
Tune: My Favorite Things

Ghosts from the past, when just white men had voicesLies, broken promises and vulgar choices,
Walls that impede frightened refugees’ flight
These are some things that go Trump in the night

Robbing from health care and from education
Neglecting the sick and the poor of our nation
Firing reporters who get the news right
These are some things that go TRUMP in the night!

Taking pay from other countries
Threat of nuclear strike!
a war against science and our Mother Earth:
The things that go TRUMP at night

Fostering bigotry throughout our nation,
bragging ’bout pow’r trips and sexual predation
Praise for the nazis while good folks are bashed.
All of our deepest held values are trashed!

Know-nothing pettiness is the new normal
sleaziness, crassness is now the new formal
Tantrums and hissy fits and picking fights –
these are some things that go TRUMP in the night!

Taking pay from other countries
Threat of nuclear strike
a war against science and our Mother Earth:
The things that go TRUMP at night!
