A song about the Lyin' King. (Set to the tune of sixteen tons)
Six Thousand Lies

Some people think life is struggle and pain,
A rich man knows that life is a game.
Life is a game and money keeps score,
The rich stay rich and keep the poor man poor.

You tell six thousand lies and what do you get,
A nation in darkness and drowning in debt.
Abe Lincoln don't you haunt us now, please look away.
There's a bigot living in your white house today.

Born to a mansion in a rich neighborhood,
Learned how to hustle, grew up to no good.
Grew up to no good, lies and scams,
I sold my soul so I don't give a damn.

You tell six thousand lies and what do you get,
A nation in darkness and drowning in debt.
Abe Lincoln don't you haunt us now, please look away.
There's a bigot living in your white house today.

Failed casinos and real estate deals,
Hang on to your wallet 'cuz I'm ready to steal,
Ready to steal, take your dreams,
I got Russian hackers to back my schemes.

You tell six thousand lies and what do you get,
A nation in darkness and drowning in debt.
Abe Lincoln don't you haunt us now, please look away.
There's a bigot living in your white house today.

Colored or poor better not even try,
My wall protects whites and the power is mine.
Power is mine, it's come to pass,
Your huddled masses can kiss my ass.

You tell six thousand lies and what do you get,
A nation in darkness and drowning in debt.
Abe Lincoln don't you haunt us now, please look away.
There's a bigot living in your white house today.


Terrence G. Fisher 2018



These lyrics are set to the tune of “Sixteen Tons” as sung by the late great Tennessee Ernie Ford. If you’re not familiar with it, then I strongly suggest you have a listen. It’s a part of our American heritage!
