I found it excruciating to listen to the SOTU Address…excruciating. If only the story he weaved were true. I’m not picking on him because he’s republican. I would love for him to succeed. But he’s a compulsive liar, taking credit for things he didn’t accomplish and laying blame on others for his own faults, knowing he has a base that wlll believe absolutely anything that comes out of his mouth. Even vomit. If only there really were new jobs, higher wages, less unemployment, a thriving middle class etc. But he simply makes things up, so it was necessary to take a small handful of his claims and point out the actual facts, of which this speech had very, very few. Thus, the UM DID HE LIE Parody.
Thanks to Elizabeth Alvarez for the great line “Um did he lie?” And thanks to Bernie Sanders for the breakdown and the inspiration.

THE SOURCE MATERIAL – “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” by the Sherman Brothers
The Sherman Brothers were an American songwriting duo that specialized in musical films, made up of Robert B. Sherman (December 19, 1925 – March 6, 2012) and Richard M. Sherman (born June 12, 1928).
The Sherman Brothers wrote more motion-picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history Film scores of the Sherman Brothers include Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Charlotte’s Web and The Aristocats. Their most well known work, however, remains the theme park song “It’s a Small World (After All)”. According to Time.com, this song is the most performed song of all time. The fact that it was played nonstop in the Disney Land ride by the same name might have contributed to that distinction.
“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” is a song from the 1964 Disney musical film Mary Poppins. The song was written by the Sherman Brothers, and sung by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. It also appears in the stage show version. Because Mary Poppins was a period piece set in 1910, songs that sounded similar to songs of the period were wanted.
The song’s writers said the word originated from their memories of creating double-talk as children. “We remembered this wonderful word from our childhood,” said Richard M. Sherman, who cowrote the song with his brother Robert, speaking in an episode of the Disney Family Album that told the story of the brothers’ careers. In a 2007 interview, Sherman said that the word’s final version emerged over two weeks while they wrote the song.
UM DID HE LIE Lyrics by Don Caron / loosely based on music by the Sherman Brothers.
New jobs are fantastic yes, on that we can agree.
Is 2.4 million a lot? Let’s take a look and see.
We went through and checked it and then checked it once again.
Those are the worst job numbers since the year 2010!
If wages have been rising that would be some dandy news.
But when you know the numbers you’ll most likely get the blues (again).
last year’s hourly wage increased by 4 cents, which is bleak,
and quarter last, the average wage went down eight bucks a week.
Finally there’s some good news as the market hits new highs.
But wait, that only counts if you’re one of the wealthy guys.
Half of us Americans don’t buy and sell in stocks.
We’re lucky if we can afford a brand new pair of socks.
Tax breaks are much needed when you struggle to make rent,
but 83 percent of the tax breaks help the one percent.
At decade’s end, on down the road, when reality arrives,
with a tax hike for 90 million families trying to survive.
Only 2 percent received a bonus or a raise.
While other tens of thousands were surprised in other ways.
When Harley, Pfizer, Wal-Mart, Comcast, Carrier and GE
joined AT&T and several others on a layoff spree.
Since inauguration day a quite long year ago,
the auto manufacture here has been much worse than slow.
5,000 people last year lost their auto sector work.
He claims it was otherwise, though, with a smarmy smirk.
He seems to be concerned about the rising cost of drugs.
You might recall an Alex Azar, Eli Lilly thug,
who raised the price of insulin by three hundred percent.
He’s now the head of HHS, if you’re wondering where he went.
We now have a Whitehouse where there’s no respect for science,
and there are many other ways they show their noncompliance.
We know they also hate the press and don’t know how to spell;
so many words to proofread, so they just say, “What the hell!”

No Trump IS the corruption in our government.
I love this!
Patricia– Can you came one specific example of Hillary’s treasonous behavior? Not a whole list of things, but just ONE. Get busy.
Bravo!! Your parodies are very entertaining and this might be the best one yet. Keep up the good work!
So, so sad….Poor ignorant deplorable, Patricia….You drank the Kool-Aid!
Do you accept Parody lyrics? I write them, but don’t perform them. I would love to see it come to life.
This is the best one yet because it includes Trump in his own words….lies! Love it
Wonderful, this was not only entertaining but informative. Thank you so much for all you do.
I am looking forward to Hillary going to jail for treason. Trump is doing our best to clean up the corruption in our government.
I think Trump is our best hope to restore our democracy. I am looking forward to Helley going to jail for treason.
This is your best song yet. Thanks for your factual accuracy.
