LYRICS to THAT’S AMORAL

When you play fear-hardball
just ‘cause you want a wall
that’s amoral
When you shut off the funds
on which our country runs
that’s amoral
When you want to be the king and the nation is your plaything
we can tell you.

You must play to your final day safely put away
where we decide to cell you.

When your lying began
and you coddled the Klan 

that’s amoral
When your fake charity
goes to your family
that amoral
When you cry out “fake news”, but FOX is your muse
then we’ll quarrel
Excuse me, but you see, here in our country

that’s amoral

When you think it’s ok
to grab someone’s v-jay

that’s amoral
When you see the abuse
and make up an excuse

that’s amoral
When your immigration scheme crushes a dreamer’s dream
that’s amoral
Excuse me, but you see, here in our country

that’s amoral

that’s amoral

that’s amoral

ABOUT THE SOURCE MATERIAL

“That’s Amore”
Songwriter Jack Brooks, Harry Warren

“That’s Amore” is a 1953 song that became a major hit and signature song for Dean Martin in 1953.

The song first appeared in the soundtrack of the Martin and Lewis comedy film The Caddy, released by Paramount Pictures on August 10, 1953. Lewis commissioned Warren and Brooks to write songs for Martin to sing in the movie. According to Lewis, he personally paid them $30,000 secretly in the hope that one would be a hit for Martin.

In the film the song is performed mainly by Martin, with Lewis joining in and then followed by the other characters in the scene. It received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Song of that year, but it lost to “Secret Love” from Calamity Jane starring Doris Day.

The song remains closely identified with Dean Martin. That’s Amore was used as the title for a 2001 video retrospective of Martin’s career; and his son, Ricci Martin, titled his 2002 biography That’s Amore: A Son Remembers Dean Martin] As an iconic song, “That’s Amore” remains a secondary signature song. The song was also the opening titles song in the film Moonstruck.

    You’re really smokin’ this month, Don! Love the lyrics to “That’s Amoral”. Goes just right with Trumpelthinskin ‘s latest boondoggle, “I’ll loan you back something I stole from you if you give me permanently what I want”. Oh yes, let’s all believe the Liar-in-Chief.
