We’re gonna need to build a border wall

In the second month of Trump’s Mess

into corporate hands
sell off public lands

In the fourth month of Trump’s Mess
he threatened with aplomb
use a nuclear bomb
sell off public lands
enforce a muslim ban
and he still wants to build a border wall

time to take break
five days of golf

sell off public lands
enforce a muslim ban
and he still wants to build a border wall

In the 12th month of Trump’s Mess
in case you hadn’t heard
Christmas is a word
the wealthy get a break
abolish the press
you’re not allowed to kneel
erase the EPA

five days of golf
use a nuclear bomb
sell off public lands
enforce a muslim ban
and he still wants to build a border wall

HISTORY OF THE SOURCE MATERIAL
(12 Days of Christmas)
“The Twelve Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas carol that was published in England in 1780. The original version was done without music and was performed as a chant.

The standard tune now associated with The 12 Days of Christmas is derived from a 1909 arrangement of a traditional folk melody by English composer Frederic Austin. He was the one who came up with the catchy little break in the middle of the verses that we recognize as “five gold rings.”

There are various historic versions of the lyrics from different countries. For example, from Scotland we have this:

The king sent his lady on the thirteenth Yule day,
Three stalks o’ merry corn,
Three maids a-merry dancing,
Three hinds a-merry hunting,
An Arabian baboon,
Three swans a-merry swimming,
Three ducks a-merry laying,
A bull that was brown,
Three goldspinks,
Three starlings,
A goose that was grey,
Three plovers,
Three partridges,
A pippin go aye;
Wha learns my carol and carries it away?

“Pippin go aye” (also spelled “papingo-aye” in later editions) is a Scots word for peacock or parrot.

    Dear Don Caron,

    First I thought all of you were brothers, as your faces were alike, and afterwards I realized — all four of you are actually the same gentleman.
    You are a genius!

    As an Indonesian who discovered your site on Youtube quite by accident a few days ago, and was absolutely delighted, I would like to offer you the highest praise for your excellent lyrics and brilliant songs.

    I have immediately shared them with fellow Indonesians and my Dutch and American friends, who also very much enjoyed your songs.

    Last year when Donald Trump was elected, a great many of us who love the USA were absolutely dismayed, and I imagined the Statue of Liberty weeping with distress and grief.
    But every cloud has its silver lining.
    If Trump hadn’t been elected, you probably wouldn’t have been inspired to write so many songs that absolutely hit home, and cause those interested in politics to really use their God-given brains!

    Please keep up your outstanding work, which the world truly needs at this moment.

    God bless you!!!

    Warm greetings
    from

      Thank you Tami for stopping by and taking the time to let me know of your support. It’s greatly appreciated. Don

    Cuts to the chase, not vindictive but soulful, smiling despite the honest sad commentary, thank you! And musically lovely. Are you all the faces and voices?

    • admin

      Thanks Gail for your thoughtful comments. And yes, I’m the faces and voices. A lot of people don’t notice that they’re all the same person.

    The Parody Project is spot on.
    I watched the Simon & Garfunkel parody also.
    Your wit brightens my day.
    Thank you for adding humor to my otherwise depressed view of politics today.
    Happy New Year and please continue on!
    “We the People” need you.

    You lifted the spirits of our family for the first time in 12 months, thanks!
