‘Honest Loyalty’ — Lyrics To Anti-Trump Ballad

One thing about Trumplandia is it constantly churns out song titles and lyrics. So, this would be a slow Radiohead type ballad of the OK Computer era. That’s the type of music I would like for this song, though the title does suggest something more akin to a mid-80s pop ballad or even a Bernie Taupin – Elton John type song. Anyway, I need to vent about Trumplandia in verse and you get this. This would be a romantic duet, the more I think about it. The whole Trump – Comey thing would be kind of a subtext.

[her]
you want me to kiss your ring
make me only sing your tune
I refuse to give you want you want
nothing will change I’m afraid
though you ask for my loyalty

[chorus – both]
I’m only prepared to give you
honest loyalty
honest loyalty
honest loyalty
take it or leave it

[him]
I vow to give you the world
if you give me your loyalty
give me what I crave
make it clear
you’ll always be mine
the rest will be divine

[bridge — both]
we thought we’d always be together
thought things would always break out way
but it seems as though only dismay
will hold sway

[chorus – both]
I’m only prepared to give you
honest loyalty
honest loyalty
honest loyalty
take it or leave it

‘Covfefe’ — Lyrics To An Anti-Trump Pop-Rock Protest Song

I have been reluctant to use this blog to write lyrics, but I enjoy writing lyrics too much, so even though for obvious legal reasons none of the lyrics I write will obviously ever be produced — the whole system of song writing is designed to prevent people like me from breaking into it — I have decided to write lyrics again anyway. The music for these lyrics in my imagination would be a peppy pop song. You would be so busy dancing that you wouldn’t really notice the lyric were kind of serious.

Covfefe
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

@bumgarls

walking down the street
smiling from my head to my feet
there’s a word that comes to mind
whenever I think of the blue wave
that will come crashing down on
our heads on election night my friend

covfefe, covfefe, covfefe
don’t let me waste your time
covfefe, covfefe, covfefe
what it means only we two know
late at night when love flows

but the people all around
think with my smile I’m a clown
I know, though, the cold hard truth
that only victory in November will do

covfefe means everything and nothing
as you can tell
it’s the word to wish someone well
when the blue wave reaches our shores
we’ll scream and shout and ask for more

covfefe, covfefe, covfefe
don’t let me waste your time
covfefe, covfefe, covfefe
what it means only we two know
late at night when love flows

[bridge]
what more can I do
what more can I say
but covfefe, covfefe, covfefe

things will soon be done
we’ll have our day in the sun
here’s what I want to exclaim
covfefe, covfefe, covfefe
