August 22, Ron DeSantis (parody to “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”)

August 22, Ron DeSantis  (1)


De Santis dictates what teachers say.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

Commanding the teachers, “Don’t say, gay.”

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

And CRT is out of reach;    (Critical Race Theory)

It’s inappropriate to teach

And they can’t say, “gay” in Florida’s schools today.


The library shelves are cleared of books.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

It’s almost as bare as Texas looks.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

If anyone’s offended by

A book, then bid that book, “Goodbye,”

They are banning books in Florida’s schools today.


Abortion just for the well-to-do,

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

Fly up to New York to NYU.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

We’ll have a purely Christian state;

(Rich Jews, we’ll have to tolerate.)

Ron DeSantis rules here in Florida today.


DeSantis campaigns against the “woke.”

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

A right-winger fire he loves to stoke,

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

Yes, caring for your fellow man

Is what DeSantis wants to ban.

You cannot be “woke” here in Florida today.


DeSantis wants to be president,

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

But Trumpists still think Trump’s heaven sent.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

To wrest the crown from Donald’s head,

Requires Trump be in jail or dead.

That’s the Red State creed, all through Florida today.


DeSantis thinks he’ll replace the Don.

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

The bigots will see a brand new dawn,

Hurrah!  Hurrah!

Can Ron beat Biden?  We don’t know.

But first, the Donald has to go.

That’s Trump’s GOP in America today.


  • May be sung to, “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” by bandleader, Patrick Gilmore (1863.) The words were original but the melody supposedly came from a tune he heard someone whistling on the street.
