‘The Ballad Of Jeff Sessions’ — #Lyrics To A #Folk #Rock Song

This would be an angry folk rock song like Neil Young’s Southern Man. At least, that’s my imagination on the subject. Again, I only write song lyrics because it’s relaxing, not because I expect them to be produced.

The Ballad Of Jeff Sessions

Jeff Sessions you want to crack down on us all
think you can have the gaul to chain us to the wall
but I got something to tell you
you’re nothing but a fool
a racist old fool and we’ll soon be done with you

he’s coming for us all in the end
wants to take away our dank
throw us in the tank
Jeff Sessions is nothing but an evil old elf

he’s racist as they come
he leaves no white hood behind
wants to break the back of black folks
throw them back to the past

[bridge]
Jeff Sessions can’t handle a joke
doesn’t laugh
not one bit
he tongue is split like a snake
a Russian snake he can’t remember
not even one he spoke to over dinner

but we know the truth
the facts speak for themselves
in the end we shall over run his hate
bring peace back to the land
our need for justice will be slaked

‘I Started The Media Men List’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I just enjoy telling stories in verse. I don’t expect this to ever be produced. Just find writing song lyrics on the fly to be relaxing. So, take all of this in context. I see the music to this to be sad and slow like Radiohead’s “How I Made My Millions.” But, whatever. Just having fun.

I Started the Media Men List
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

time has come to change the world
time has come to make a difference
we have to stop standing still
mine is the power to make a change
here is what I did

I started the media men list
I started the media men list
I started the media men list

the winds of change are blowing
making people take notice
but will they hear what I have to say
or will they push it back another day

I am using my voice
to give notice to those in power
that what has been done can be no more
we have to fight the good fight
end men’s ability to take delight by force

I started the media men list
I started the media men list
I started the media men list

[bridge]
when change happens at last
this car won’t run out of gas
been too long
it’s too late
we must continue even at this late date

I started the media men list
I started the media men list
I started the media men list

‘Very Stable Genius’ — #Lyrics to a Pop-Rock Song

I only write song lyrics because it’s relaxing. That’s it. And I like to tell stories in verse. In my imagination, the music to this would be something post-punk like the Psychedelic Furs.

Very Stable Genius
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Trump is one of those guys
weak man’s take on a strong man
dumb man’s take on a smart man
he think’s got it under control
but we all know it’s all fake

he think’s he’s a very stable genius
thinks he’s a very stable genius
think’s he’s a very stable genius

things could be worse
his cheeseburger could be cold
and Kim Jun Un on hold
but he’s the type of guy
who does everything on the sly

Trump is ruler of the world
wants to bring down ruin on us
it seems as such
but only we can change this
by voting in the fall
resist, resist, resist

he think’s he’s a very stable genius
thinks he’s a very stable genius
think’s he’s a very stable genius

[bridge]
we have to be ready to answer the call
things are dire it’s obvious to me
that the end may come
if we don’t ring the bell of liberty

we have one last chance
one last chance to defeat Trump and his goons
but let’s not lose sight of the fact that
Trump thinks he’s a
very stable genius
very stable genius
very stable genius
