LYRICS to IMPEACHMENT

Congress, you’ve got to let us know;
Should he stay or should he go?
If you say his time has come
it sets a needed rule of thumb.
It’s up to you, the yes or no.
Should he stay or should he go?

Perhaps you fear you might displease.
But hey there ain’t no guarantees.
One day it’s dark and next it’s black,
so we just want him off our back,
‘cause we’ve sunk to a new low:
Turned it into a shit show.

The tumor’s only gonna grow, now.
So will he stay or will he go, now?
If he goes, there will be trouble
And if he stays it will be double
So come on and let us know

This indecision’s bugging me.
Which way is it gonna be?
It all depends on your decree.
You took a solemn oath for your degree
So come on and let us know.
Can you kill his tv show?

Should he stay or should he go now?
Voting yea or voting no, now?
If he goes there will be trouble.
And if he stays it will be double.
Which direction will we go?
Will it be giddyup or whoa?

Should he stay or should he go now?
Don’t you know he’s in a bubble?
If it pops there will be trouble.
Tell us now, we wanna know;
Will he stay or will he go?

HISTORY OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL

“Should I Stay or Should I Go” is a song by the English punk rock band the Clash, from their album Combat Rock. It was written in 1981 and featured Mick Jones on lead vocals. It became the band’s only number-one single on the UK Singles Chart, a decade after it was originally released. In November 2004, it was ranked at 228 on “Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” list.

Many rumours have arisen about the song’s content, such as Jones’ impending dismissal from the Clash or the tempestuous personal relationship between Jones and American singer Ellen Foley.”Should I Stay Or Should I Go” was thought to be written by Jones about Foley, who sang the backing vocals on Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell LP.

However, Jones himself said:

“It wasn’t about anybody specific and it wasn’t pre-empting my leaving The Clash. It was just a good rockin’ song, our attempt at writing a classic … When we were just playing, that was the kind of thing we used to like to play.”

The Spanish backing vocals were sung by Joe Strummer and Joe Ely:

On the spur of the moment I said ‘I’m going to do the backing vocals in Spanish’ … We needed a translator so Eddie Garcia, the tape operator, called his mother in Brooklyn Heights and read her the lyrics over the phone and she translated them. But Eddie and his mum are Ecuadorian, so it’s Ecuadorian Spanish that me and Joe Ely are singing on the backing vocals. – Joe Strummer, 1991

    Yes. I think Trump committed (at the very least) obstruction of justice & should be impeached.

    *But* the public isn’t on board with that. Those who watch only conservative news have no clue there was anything negative about Trump in the Mueller report. His base all believe his lies, and even Republicans & conservative Christians who
    acknowledge his faults still support him.

    Why? Bcause he delivered on his major campaign promises–appointing a conservative Supreme Court justice, recognizing Jerusalem as the seat of Israel, getting out of the Iranian Nuclear Deal, building the “wall,” tax cuts (although it is uniformly agreed the tax law doesn’t benefit anyone other than the top 1%; see https://publicintegrity.org/business/taxes/trumps-tax-cuts/trump-tax-law-has-big-problems/), etc.

    These are all horrible ideas considered separately; together they do not present anything like a unified policy. I don’t believe Trump understands what he is doing or why. He just promised anyone who said they would vote for him whatever they wanted to hear. But I digress . . .

    Congress will have a hard time with voters if they try to impeach Trump without convincing more people of his wrongdoing. One thing preventing this
    (besides his lies) is he’s fighting all investigations tooth and nail so they can’t prove anything: ‘It’s Easier to Fool People Than to Convince Them That They Have Been Fooled’ — Mark Twain.

    I want the Democrats win in 2020. If that means not impeaching Trump until after the election so be it.

    impeach now. he is not above the law. The fact that the senate will not convict is assuming what the house makes very very public will not force the senate to look like the criminals they are if they do not convict. So yes, the house should impeach AND they should make very sure that the points that are impeachable are very very clear and very dramatically stated, over and over in such a way that what ever he does to try and steal the limelight and distract everyone doesn’t work. They should give serious consequences for refusing to honor subpoena; I favor fines AND imprisonment. Say $15000 per day and that spent behind bars until taxes are produced and everyone subpoened appears.

    Love all of your parodies! DT definitely needs to go. It is going to takes years to undo all the harm he has caused!

  4. Penny Goodstein

    I love this! I don’t think impeachment is the way to go. If the House expends all that energy, only to have it fail miserably in the Senate, our Republican POTUS will look like the victim he loves to be, and will become a martyr. We need to vote him out; Democrats need to concentrate on becoming more cohesive.

    As always – a bright, bright spot in an ever bleaker world. Thank you for doing what you do – It’s affirming to know there are so many others who have not drunk the kool-aid – and some of them (that would be you) are very gifted.

  6. Katherine Lake

    Oh, Don, it’s so good to have all the guys singing in this one. It expresses exactly what I’m feeling right now: Sh** or get off the pot Nancy!

      Thanks Katherine, it’s great to have all the guys back together. 😉

    He is in my country (UK) at the moment telling lies, he says there were crowds there to support him – there were not.
    He then says that there were no protests and that is all fake news! There were approximately 75000 people there

  8. Nancy Andersen

    Yes, DT should go. He is NOT above the law, nor is he above the Constitution. He must be impeached, though the spineless Senate will not convict.
