“Mr 45,” by Don Caron / Parody Project … (Parody of “Mrs Robinson” – Music to Your Ears, Mock’n’Roll–13)

We will be relieved when Mr. Forty-Five has left and gone away.

Don Caron – “Mr 45”

“Mr 45” (2018) – Parody of “Mrs Robinson” (1968)

This period-piece harkens back to a simpler time – to 2018, that is. A time when black and white blended into a soft, murky gray.  

45 + 0 = 100 

In the fog of Russiagate, nobody could see anything clearly. But everyone knew that the 45th president of the US was 100% guilty of … something. The only thing is, the 2-year-long Mueller investigation could not prove that guilt, or any guilt.  

Crying about Criminals

Now, the only thing we know is that Mr 45 is guilty of being a shady real-estate tycoon and a crooked politician. Unfortunately, that may not be sufficient reason to “lock him up!”  – even though it should be.

But at least we can look forward to the day when he has “left and gone away.”   Y’know, the day he is replaced by Criminal #46. Boo, hoo, hoo.   (Image source)

Don Caron / The Parody Project

Don Caron is a composer / film-maker who has worked in the entertainment industry for over 40 years.

In 2017, he founded The Parody Project “as a means of surviving the current political and social mire by laughing.”    

With antidotes such as “Mr 45,”  he offers us a bit of hope that we might survive the coming few years.

If not, at least we’ll go down laughing.   (Image source)

And here’s to you Mr Forty-Five,
Jesus will not bail you out you know.
Woe, woe, woe
God isn’t pleased Mr Forty-Five.
Heaven knows you don’t know how to pray.
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Mueller would like to know a bit about you for his files.
He’d like you to incriminate yourself.
Jail is not a place where you’ll see sympathetic eyes.
Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.

And here’s to you Mr Forty-Five.
You're obsessed with pardons, wonder why.
Lie, lie, lie
You like the power of handing pardons out,
Something that the judges can’t undo.
Woo, woo, woo
Woo, woo, woo

Kim Kardashian asked you, so you freed Alice Marie.
Wrote a message on your steak in catsup.
We know you’ve been thinking about pardoning yourself.
Most of all you should provide one for the kids.

Koo koo ka choo, Mr Forty-Five.
You’ve done far more damage than you know.
Woe, woe, woe
The world has all turned against us now.
What did you expect that they would do?
Boo hoo hoo
Boo hoo hoo

Give yourself a pardon on a Sunday afternoon.
Then tweet how you've done nothing wrong.
Talk about it, tweet about it, either way you choose,
Any way you look at it you lose.

We wish you gone more than you could know.
The nation turns it’s weary eyes from you.
Woo, woo, woo
And we will be, Mr Forty-Five,
Relieved when you've left and gone away.
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Hi @majes.tytyty

HAHAHAH just as I write this comment 10:55pm Venezuelan time, I'm sitting in front of my computer working with the payroll of my university, and I could laugh a lot. with this parody...

I hope you have a great day friend

Glad I could make your day a bit brighter. This man also wrote a song called "Venezuela," to the tune of "Heard it Thru the Grapevine." I'm working on that post, and will have it up in a few weeks.

I'm glad to hear that you're working, and that you are able to take care of essential affairs in your country. I hope all continues to go well and get better.

Cheers!

Those two men are lovely singing, thanks!
