Is this the real wall? Is this just fantasy?
Voted in by Tea Party, no escape to reality,
Open your eyes, look over to the Right and see;
I'm just a rich guy, I need your sympathy,
Because it's easy come, easy go, dollar high, dollar low,
Any way that Kim goes, doesn't really matter to me, to me ...

Melania, they killed my plan
Voted No because they’re Reds,
Killed my budget, now it's dead
Melania, the spend had just begun
But now they’ve gone and thrown it all away
Melania, ooh, didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back on CNN tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters ...

Too late, your time has gone,
Want to make the markets climb,
Makin’ money aint a crime,
Goodbye, losers, you’ve got to go
Gonna leave you all behind and let you stew,
Melania, ooh, they don't want to pay,
I sometimes wish I'd never thought up my wall ...

I see a little silhouetto of a Don,
Shut it down ! Shut it down ! Close the whole bloody government !
Redundancies and fighting, very, very exciting me,
(Economics) Economics, (Economics) Economics, Economics make it so,
Magnifico oh oh oh oh !
(I'm just a rich guy, everyone loves me)
He's just a rich guy with a rich family
Spare him his tax from this accountancy,
Easy come, easy go, will you build my wall ?
Bismillah! No, we will not build your wall !
(Build his wall !) Bismillah! We will not build your wall !
(Build his wall ) Bismillah! We will not build your wall !
(Build his wall ) Will not build your wall !
(Build his wall ) Will not build your wall !
(Build his wall ) Ah, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
(Oh mamma mia, mamma mia) Mama mia, build my wall !
The FBI has a docket put aside on me, on me, on me !

So you think I’m a devious Russian spy ?
So you think Vladimir will hang me right out to dry ?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby !
Just gotta get loot, just gotta get loot outta here!

Borders really matter, anyone can see,
Borders really matter,
Borders really matter, to me,

Any way that Kim goes ...

       I'm not a Queen fan, and particularly dislike this song but this is a clever version that required a lot of work - so croissant fragment delivered.

       Er, actually no. It's merely blatant plagiarism leavened with a pinch of satire.

AusCan531, Mar 20 2019

       Well, according to St. John of Patmos, "... and the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. {6:8} And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth...."

       Ah yes - the Patmos. Barbarella. Those were the days.

       Me bowing down, of course, AC531. Husband doesn't get bowed to very often. It's a rarity at our house.

       //Easy come, easy go, will you build my wall ? Bismillah! No, we will not build your wall ! (Build his wall !) Bismillah! We will not build your wall !//   

       That was the actual laugh out loud part for me.   

       8 you clever bastard, this really is brilliant. If you were to do this with that "deep fake" style where you have videos of Trump for instance saying "...will you build my wall?" and a chorus of the Democrats in congress responding you'd get tens of millions of views on Youtube. Probably worth about a buck fifty, but there's more to life than money.   

       OK, just a cheezy paper cutout animation with the mouths moving Monty Python style would do it.   

       Of course you'd have to record the song too obviously. Not an easy song to recreate. There's an overdub or two.   

       Hey, offer a comedy theater group the gig. Have them wear masks maybe?
doctorremulac3, Mar 20 2019

       Why not just use real Congresspersons ? We have it on relisble authority that U.S. politicians aren't that expensive to purchase outright ...   

       // there's more to life than money //   

       Tell that to the Ferengi ....
8th of 7, Mar 21 2019

       //U.S. politicians aren't that expensive to purchase outright ...//   

       No doubt there are some real bargains to be had in Congress. It's a buyer's market.
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2019

       It's a well-known fact that American democracy is the best that money can buy ...

8th of 7, Mar 21 2019

       Hey man, I could tear this up. That's what I used to do.   

       Ready to call bullshit on my next story?   

       SUPPOSEDLY___SUPPOSEDLY Freddy Mercury was a fan of my music. We were on the same label.   

       Now although it's true, (that I heard that from people at the label, not that I've ever met anybody from the band myself) I'd have no respect for anybody who would believe that, and I certainly wouldn't.   

       True though.   

       Oh, and when I was a kid I shook Ronald Reagan's hand on a tour of the State Capital.   

       That's it for interesting tidbits about my life.
doctorremulac3, Mar 21 2019

       All we hear is, Twitter Blah Blah!
Dub, Mar 21 2019

       // I shook Ronald Reagan's hand //   

       Pah.We have spent the best part of half an hour chatting to Her Majesty the Queen about Land Rovers, while holding the bridle of Princess Anne's horse backstage at the Horse of the Year show. Horrible, smelly, bad-tempered creature with huge teeth, although her horse was remarkably docile. The Queen knows a surprising amount about Land Rovers, too.
8th of 7, Mar 22 2019

       In defense of my apparently tall tale, this was back when Queen (the band, not the) was dropped by EMI because of lack of sales presumably. They were also, at that time, considered a has-been band whose time had come and gone, kind of yesterday's news and not the rock gods they are now. It was only the occasional fan who didn't care about being hip like me who were proud to be into Queen. They were not cool. So back a quarter of a century ago, if I had said "Freddy Mercury is a fan of my music." people would have laughed, but for another reason.   

       That being said, maybe the A&R guys at the label were just lying to make me feel good. Eh, whatever.   

       But I definitely DID shake Reagan's hand. Jumped out in front of him as we was walking through the statehouse with a throng of reporters and suity guys, stood in front of him and stuck my hand out. He laughed, bent down, shook my hand and patted me on the head. He said something but in all the noise and commotion, like the teacher screaming at me to get back with the class I didn't hear what he said. Probably "Get the fuck out of my way you little commie shit, I've got a country to save!".   

       Oh yea, and I met a famous comic book artist. The kids were all standing in line to get their comic books signed and when it was my turn I got up there and pretended I was mentally handicapped (no jokes please) and made a bunch of grunting noises while twitching and making spastic body convulsions while my buddies laughed their asses off. He said "Awww." and gave me a big hug which made me feel kind of bad.   

       Still, it was brilliant impromptu comical theater and everybody (but the teacher of course) thought it was awesome. Never had much luck with teachers.
doctorremulac3, Mar 22 2019

       No doubt that would be the geography teachers ... amoral sadistic misanthropic sociopaths, the lot of them.
8th of 7, Mar 22 2019

       "Horrible, smelly, bad-tempered creature " hahaha - don't believe it for a moment.

       Still laughing. Perfect, unfortunately.
