Monsters roam the Earth, it's now a proven fact, and we've got one who breathes is Big Macs.



Who never graduated from third grade, who 's making us all lay in the bed of shit he's made.



Stomps on the constitution and the rule of law, who taunts and ridicules like he has no flaws



Spreading terror throughout all the lands, and is quick to defend the size of his hands.



Seized the presidency, and now, he won't let go, How much damage he'll do, God only knows!



A being that seems from another realm has grabbed the power and grasped the helm



to steer us on a course of sure disaster -- he sees it as his right for he’s our ‘lord and master’.



Could be a different language that he speaks, he pays no attention but goes ahead and tweets.



This monster has come and is tearing it asunder; the world and it’s population to be held under



until this egotistic beast has had his fill of power and can rule at will from his skeleton-built tower.


Byan Adams--'Summer Of '69'


 

Lyrics

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
Was the summer of sixty-nine

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
I should've known we'd never get far

Oh, when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you've got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you, yeah

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah
Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh

Man, we were killin' time, we were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no

Yeah

And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that it'd last forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah
Back in the summer of sixty-nine, oh
It was the summer of sixty-nine, oh, yeah
Me and my baby in sixty-nine, oh
It was the summer, the summer, the summer of sixty-nine, yeah

NOT Bryan Adams--'The Fall Of Ought Sixteen'


 

I got the first of many wake up calls,
a guy who lies right on T. V.
got elected, how my eyes they'd bleed
was the fall of ought-sixteen

You and some guys from clown school,
assumed power and played the 'fake news!' card
A few quit and Bannon got fired,
you president like a drunk in a bar

Oh, when I look back now, after just a year
seems like we've been f**ked forever
And if I had a choice
Yeah, you'd be on the screen exactly never
oh, been the worst year of my life

Ain't no use in complaining,
'cause being an idiot comes natural to you
watching you, feel I need a shower,
'cause feel like we've just been screwed

Yeah, you're face on the tube again
you're claiming you'll be here forever
Yeah, when you bragged you could put your hand

down women's pants, I knew it would end never
this is the worse year of my life

Since the fall of ought sixteen
Since the fall of ought sixteen

Man, you're just yanking chain, and some are delusion's child
We all just need a break
from seeing your face, brings up the bile, oh shit!

Now our democracy's changing
look at everything that's come undone
Sometimes when I stop and think,
I wonder about us and what went wrong

Standing over a clean white bucket
trying not to heave forever,
over all held in your trance
it's something I'll understand, never
It's been the worst year of my life

Oh, yeah
since the fall of ought sixteen
since the fall of ought sixteen, oh no

started heaving in ought sixteen
Since the fall, since the fall of ought sixteen--oh, no
