I GOT A CALL FROM 45 TODAY

Written by Andy Fuhrman © Copyright August 2, 2017. All Rights Reserved

 

Well I received a call earlier today

From the president of the USA

Saying he’s digging the music that I play

He says it’s got some rock and it’s got some roll

It’s got some country and a whole lot of soul

And he’d like me to do a show for him and his pals today

I got a call from 45 today

 

He says I’m sorry boys

The White House’s a dump

Not fitting for anyone named Trump

I’d like to have you play at my pad down in Palm Beach

Say’s he’s his old buddy Putin will be coming

And wants to hear the tunes I’m strumming

Can I be here ‘bout 8 o’clock tonight?

 

Tells me he’s sending over his private jet

To take me to where he’s at

And there’ll be all sorts of treats on the flight for me

Well that last part sounded mighty good

And it didn’t take long to figure if I would

So I thanked him and this is what I said

 

I says 45, you make me sick

You’re egocentric, racist who thinks he slick

You and your pals are bringing our country down

Your brain is like a cesspool there’s no doubt

You never give a thought of what comes out of your mouth

And you and your pals are taking our country down

 

Your life has been filled with greed, corruption and graft

You scammed your way out of the Vietnam draft

The great negotiator is nothing more than a con artist from Queens

As I hung up I told him he can kiss my ass

Then I rolled a fatty of some homegrown grass

Picked up my guitar and strummed a patriotic tune

From a neighbor who lived down the block on Mermaid Avenue

 

CHORUS 2X

This land is your land

This land is my land

From California to the New York Island

From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters

Don’t let Trump take it from you and me  

 

Often times I’ve had a dream

All the world’s men and women were equal and free

And old politicians sending young folks off to war was history

But for now all I can do - is sing old Woody’s tune

So let’s all sing it together as it comes around --> CHORUS
