“Not Respectable”

(Scroll down for lyrics…)

I tried recording the lead vocal a few times, but it just wasn’t happening using my normal voice. No zip. Then, as a joke, I tried it in a fake Louis Armstrong voice. And just like that, we have a winner! Just like our dear, stable, wise, and highly qualified President himself…

Not Respectable

Had a lotta dough
Doing what you know
Starring in a show
Gonna make a go
For all the rest

Each and every morn
Lying up a storm
Where the man was born
Little bigot porn
You gave your best

      And that is
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not acceptable

      And you are
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not respectable

Had a lotta fun
Not to be outdone
When you made your run
Half a country stunned by
What we heard

Each and every day
Shouting out to say
“Keep ’em all away”
Media replay your
Hateful words

      And that is
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not acceptable

      And you are
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not respectable

            Memory…
            History…
            Why can’t we
            All recall what is fair and kind?

            Never hide
            Or divide
            Step inside
            Share your life with a peaceful mind
            It’s worth a try…

      And that is
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not acceptable

      And you are
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not respectable

Had a lotta luck
Passing every buck
Country gone amuck
Didn’t give a damn
For all your lies

Each and every night
Screaming that you’re right
Giving us a fright
In a sheet of white
You can’t disguise

      And that is
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not acceptable

      And you are
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na na na
      Na na na na na na
      Not respectable
      Not respectable
