Donald at the Bat – Day 737, The Shutdown is Over (parody to “Plane Wreck at Los Gatos” aka ‘Deportee’)

Day 737, The Shutdown is Over!

(May be sung to “Plane Wreck at Los Gatos) (1)


The shutdown is over and Donald retreated;

He got not a penny for his border wall.

So now, besides Putin, Trump has been defeated

By Nancy Pelosi: how humbling the fall!


Trump promised his voters a giant erection

On our southern border.  He’d charge Mexico.

But now he conceded in total dejection,

As national polling told him where to go.



Say goodbye to Donald; goodbye Stephen Miller.

Adios to your steel wall forged by bigotry.

Your names that are now only cursed by the liberals,

Will be cursed by all when we write history.


The unkindest cut was a tweet by Ann Coulter,

Who called Trump a wimp and much worse than Bush One.

Defeated by Nancy, exposed as a folder,

Now Trump can’t remember the last time he won.


When Trump caused the shutdown, he hurt his employees,

All innocent people who suffered for naught.

What Donald Trump touches he often destroys,

No sympathy, empathy for what he wrought.


Chorus:  Say goodbye to Donald….



Is this the best way we can govern our nation,

To throw childish tantrums, make ransom demands?

Say suffering hostages are on vacation,

So Trump gets his wall against brown caravans?



Say goodbye to Donald, goodbye Stephen Miller.

Adios to your steel wall forged by bigotry.

You failed in your bid to become a dictator.

Would Putin accept you as a deportee?
