about

Last year we included our cover of ABBA's "Dancing Queen" on "The Don of a New Error". However, those lyrics referred to a very different phase of the Trump residency, long before his botched COVID-19 response. So without further ado...

lyrics

You can lie, such a liar
Somebody’s pants are on fire
See the clown, watch him sing
Diggin’ the Lyin’ King

Lying’s always come naturally
Though you call it hyperbole
You invented a legend:

“Artist of the Deal”
Making it sound so real

Lying helped you to build your brand
Write the myth of the self-made man
Then you got The Apprentice
Everyone could see how you turned out to be
Ruthless and conscience-free

You are the Lyin’ King…
Old and gross such a nasty thing
Lyin’ King…
Tweety bird with a song to sing

You can lie, such a liar
Somebody’s pants are on fire
See the clown, watch him sing
Diggin’ the Lyin’ King

Now you’re facing a new disease
You’re not ready for times like these
Talking ‘bout the pandemic
See the people die
Trapped in another lie

All your money and all your fame
All the pressure and all the blame
Pin it all on Obama like you always do
Nobody’s fooled by you
Nothing you say is true

You are the Lyin’ King…
Old and gross such a nasty thing
Lyin’ King…
Tweety bird with a song to sing
