Stevieslaw: Won’t you please just go away

Today’s tweetstorms about the NFL, Puerto Rico and N. Korea by the bad orange have me mourning for the America I thought I knew. And sure enough, what popped into my head was that Melanie Safka (also recorded by Ray Charles and Nina Simone) classic—the perfect song for Trump’s Amerika. Here are a few stanzas:

look what they done to my song ma
look what they done to my song
well it’s the only thing
that i could do half right
and it’s turning out all wrong ma
look what they done to my song

look what they done to my brain ma
look what they done to my brain
well they picked it like a chicken bone
and i think i’m half insane ma
look what they done to my song

wish i could find a good book to live in
wish i could find a good book
well if i could find a real good book
i’d never have to come out and look at
what they done to my song
