Holiday Ditty 2018-Here We Are At Mar-A-Lagah

With the most abject apologies to Allan Sherman

Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah
Here we are at Mar-A-Lagah
Trump is angry, and he’s tweeting
He’s unhappy with Melania and the seating.

Playing ping pong with Chris Christie
Jared Kushner, and Mulvaney
And there’s cheery Stephen Miller
Disappeared into the swamp right after dinner

Sarah Sanders hates reporters
George and Kelly not divorcers
Steve Mnuchin cutting spending
Sends his wife to London Rome and Copenhagen

Now I want you to forget it
Scottie Pruitt can’t make bail yet
You remember Rickey Perry
Put a drill rig on the Staten Island Ferry

Take me home, oh Muddah, Faddah
Take me home, I hate Mar-a-Lagah
Don't leave me on the tarmac where
I’m watching Lou Dobbs on a dare

Take me home, I promise I’ll have
No guns for toys, or vid-yo games with
Other boys, oh please don't make me stay
Tomorrow Rudy’s here all day

I should tell ya, darling Betsy
Packs a pistol, nothing fancy
V-P Pence says, she’s a winner
But he runs away before the start of dinner

Then there’s Wilbur, inside trader
Made a billion, maybe greater
Sad Jeff Sessions, chugged a brewski
Joining Gorkha, Bannon, Spicie and the Moochie

Take me home, oh Muddah, Faddah
Take me home, I hate Mar-a-Lagah
Soon, they’re teaching us to build the Wall 
While saying Merry Christmas to y’all

Take me home, I promise I’ll get 
A’s in school, and learn to play the 
Oboe too, oh please I want to go
My swim buddy is Mikey Pompeo

Dearest Fadduh, Darling Muddah
Should I mention, Counselor Kavanaugh?
Let me come home, I’ll be quiet
I would even clean my room and then vacuum it

Wait a minute, something’s happening
Girls are waving, guys are shouting 
Who’s that old guy, gee that's Muellah
Muddah, Faddah kindly disregard this letter

Merry and Happy from all of us

Michael Liss
