March Madness, Trump Madness

Villanova is beating Oklahoma.

The Sooners have got to win, win, win,
but it’s 76 to 31
and tears are setting in.

If we had to choose,
we would never lose:

we hate losers,
but we love the Sooners.

The Sooners have got to win,
they’ve got to win.

It’s been so long since they’ve won,
I don’t even know
if it’s ever been done.

In the end it was 95 to 51,
and the Sooners were
quite stunned.

Villanova’s magnificent feat
lifted you from your seat

Some fans were very glad
and others were very sad

And arena owners raked it
in, in, in
They’re the ones that really
win, win, win

They don’t want us to think, think, think,
just to keep us on the brink, brink, brink
while they take it to the bank, bank, bank

America doesn’t win anymore.
We’ve fallen to the floor.
We’re fouled out of trade deals:
losers know how it feels.

We’ve got to win,
we’ve got to win again,
we’re under hypnosis
in a kind of psychosis

We’ve got to win, we’ve got to win again
We’ve got to beat Mexico and China and Japan
even if we go nuclear again

We’ve got to have borders
where others take our orders,
to make a wall  that’s very tall
to make others feel very small

We’ve got to make more money,
we’re so poor it isn’t funny

a billionaire will show us what to do
he’ll make deals too hard for me or you.

we want to win
to make the ball go in
we want to win
to make the ball go in

ours is not to reason why
ours is but to win or cry

we can’t think we can’t think

we’re on the brink we’re on the brink
