I bought a new iPad recently, as my old one was showing signs of distress. I was thrilled to discover that my new toy came equipped with GarageBand, and that I could record stuff quite easily.
I’m gradually getting to grips with it, so production is still a bit rough around the edges, but it is such an intuitive app that I’ve recorded three songs in a week (compared with my previous best of two in 40 years). They’re all Trump related: he must be the most odious Muse ever, but he’s a great source of material.
Here’s the latest, which is hot off the press today. Exciting times!
Gave Me Everything
Man came down from NYC,
Said he stood for you and me.
Blind to his hypocrisy,
We gave him everything.
Man sat up upon his hill
Dispensing all his bitter pills
And making all the people ill
Who gave him everything.
Man went to the Treasury
Demanded he should have the key
He said “I’ll have to charge a fee”,
While taking everything.
Man said everyone would win
He’d make the country great again,
Then watched as all the storms rolled in
Man he fans the flame of hate
He loves the disunited States
It means more billions for his mates
Who covet everything
Man spends time in Twitter fights
He gives away your human rights
You’d best be rich and best be white
If you want anything.
Man he waves his little hands
“Capitulate to my demands
Or find you don’t have any chance
Of being anything!
‘Cause when you listened to my lies
And bought them all, surprise, surprise,
You brought about your own demise,
You gave me everything!”
PARENTAL ADVISORY: As you may be able to tell from the title this one has sweary bits from the beginning. Keep away from young ears…
