I Am The Con Man

Not that I need to tell anyone but it’s almost upon us. The most important election of our lifetimes, maybe of them all. Do we choose a creeping self serving authoritarianism or do we choose something with a bit of hope? I think I’ve made myself pretty clear where I stand over these four Trump dumbed down years and, as to that, I’ve written, sung and then built out some parody songs, almost 30 of them now and posted them here in the Attic.

I brought this number up when talking with a bestest of friends recently and he had the bestest of ideas. Re-post one a day up until election time. I thought yeh, why the heck not?

So Tally-Ho then.

Though I did a take on “Keep Your Hands To Yourself” to start, this was basically my first tune, my first in an eventual album’s worth of Beatles covers and then other tunes to follow.

I am me as I love me and you are me
And we love me together
See how we plumb we’re pigs for the dumb
See dollars run
I’m genius

Sitting on a tax cut
Waiting for some yen to fly
Corporate stock big buy back, stupid farmer loyals
Man you’re all bunch of rubes
You let your Trump grow long

I am the Charlatan
You are the simpletons
I am the Con Man
Goo goo ga-rube

Mr Mrs Congress sitting
Pretty always at my beck and call
See how they buy with a gleam in their eye
See how they buy
My buuuuuulllshit….
They’re buuuuuuying….they’re buuuuuying…I’m lyyyyyyyyyyying!

Yellow ting-ed dollars
Making me a buck or three
Trumpy props’ll bring it home, tradeymarks’ll get it done
Boy I am a wealthy man
I sold the White House down

I am the Charlatan
You are the simpletons
I am the Con Man
Goo goo ga-rube

…Sitting in a rose-ed garden
Waiting chance to lie
And if the lie don’t play
I’ll own my fake by keeping up a perfect face…

I am the Charlatan
You are the simpletons
I am the Con Man
Goo goo ga-rube goo goo goo ga-rube

No one tells me what to do it’s just the base that’s thinking that I’m true
See them form a mob call enemies a slob
See how they cry
For vengeance

No one checking numbers, they take me at my less than word
Money out of pocket, suck it up they musty
Man they are so dumb believe that this is something good

I am the Charlatan
You are the simpletons
I am the Con Man
Goo goo ga-rube goo goo ga-rube, goo goo ga-rube ga goo goo ga-rube ga goo
