LYRICS
by John Emory

There’s a courtroom most defendants fear
And it tries dozens of crimes a year
Lonely lawyers, make it oh so clear
They’d rather not be there

There’s a man, who grew up in this town
likes to tear everybody down
They say Donald, you are such a clown
But that just suits him fine

His lawyers say: Donald,
Judge will fine you
If you don’t keep your mouth shut
If you plan to say something nasty, better not

Donald, wears a tie so long
He looks like he just tied it wrong
And he thinks about all the pretty girls
That he knew sexually

His fixer came on a cloudy day,
bringing hush money from New Jersey
He made it clear they could never say
What Don had done with them

His lawyers say: Donald,
Judge will fine you
If you don’t keep your mouth shut
If you plan to say something nasty, better not

Yeah, Donald used to fall asleep
as the jurors told their stories
You could see his eyes closed now and then
He seemed to have no worries
But he has never told the truth,
he’s one dishonest man
Which Donald’s base just cannot understand

Late night, sulking in Trump Tower
Donald fumes and frets past the midnight hour
And dreams of retribution power
But still he hears them say

He hears them say, “Donald,
judge will fine you
If you don’t keep your mouth shut
If you plan to say something nasty, better not”

Donald, judge will fine you
In criminal contempt
But perhaps, that is precisely your intent

ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SONG

“Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” is a 1972 song by American pop rock band Looking Glass from their debut album, Looking Glass. It was written by Looking Glass lead guitarist and co-vocalist Elliot Lurie.

The single reached No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and Cash Box Top 100 charts, remaining in the top position for one week. It reached No. 2 on the former chart for four weeks, behind Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Alone Again (Naturally)”, before reaching No. 1, only to be dethroned by “Alone Again (Naturally)” the week after. Billboard ranked it as the No. 12 song for 1972.

The lyrics tell of Brandy, a barmaid in a busy seaport harbor town which serves “a hundred ships a day.” Though lonely sailors flirt with her, she pines for one who has long since left her because he claimed his life, his love, and his lady, was “the sea.”

The urban myth that Brandy was based on Mary Ellis (1750–1828), a spinster in New Brunswick, New Jersey, has been refuted by Lurie himself.

Lurie was thrilled with the deeper meaning given to the song when its lyrics were used as a metaphor by a father explaining his life’s choices to his son in the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which came out in 2017.

In February 1972, Robert Mandel was the Epic Records Promotion Manager in Washington, D.C. He received a test pressing of an album by Looking Glass, then a new group. He took the test pressing around to every radio station in the Washington/Baltimore region. At the time, WPGC AM/FM was one of the leading Top 40 stations in the country and was the number one radio station in DC. Harv Moore was the Program Director. He put the song into a one-hour rotation for two days and as Moore related at the time, “the switchboard lit up like a Christmas tree.” He said that he had never received a response like that on a record in his 15 years in radio.

Based on the airplay at WPGC and all the other Top 40 stations that followed, Epic rush-released the single of “Brandy”. Based on requests alone, two weeks later, when the single finally hit the stores, “Brandy” was the number one record in DC without a single copy yet sold. Other stations around the country started playing it, and it ended up being a number one million seller. A year later when Moore celebrated his 10th Anniversary at WPGC, Looking Glass returned the favor and played at the bash the station held in his honor.

Upon the release of the single, Record World called it “a tuneful, soulful effort deserving of heavy action.”
