Fiona Apple took to Tumblr today to share her festive anti-Trump Christmas Carol, covering Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song”.
Aside from the charming imagery of Roasting Trump’s nuts, Apple’s lyrics touch on the sexual abuse allegations against Trump: “you’ll cry creepy uncle / every time he arrives / for he keeps clawing at your clothes;” and racism: “he’s got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh,” before closing the song with an outright “Donald Trump, fuck you.”
Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire
as he keeps nipping at his foes.
you’ll cry creepy uncle
every time he arrives
for he keeps clawing at your clothes
everybody knows some money and entitlement
can help to make the season white
mothers of color with their kids out of sight
will find it hard to sleep at night.
They know that truuump is on his way.
he’s got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh
and every working man is going to cry
when they learn that Letch don’t care how you live or if you die
Sooo I’m offering this simple phrase
to kids from 1 to 92
although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Donald Trump, fuck you
