Sing along Miss C:

I could while away the hours
Conferrin’ from Trump Towers
The pressures are a strain

. . .dudu dudu dudu

It’s my a$$, I’d be scratchin’
POTUS schemes I’d be a-hatchin’
If I only had a brain. . . .

I’d unravel every riddle
Bring peace to east, the middle
The oil I’d keep for gain

. . . jeje jeje jeje

With the thoughts I’d be thinkin’
Keep my cred from further sinkin’
If I only had a brain

Happy Friday - enjoy the long weekend too.
