Liner Notes: 

Well you gotta know I had to write about Trump's latest! Who knew we needed an ID to shop? Anyone want to pick this up? I hope so.


I Didn't Know (I Needed an I.D.)
© 2018 Cindy Prince

The president said it
So you know it must be true
I didn't know I needed an ID to shop, did you?

Oh wise one told us
So we should take it to heart
I didn't know I needed a ID to push a grocerty cart

News to you, news to me
We can't shop without an ID
Does it have to have a photo?
Is that how they do it in Moscow?
Do you need two for a shopping spree?

The great man voiced it
So we had better take heed
I wasn't very prepared when I went to the A & P

The big cheese said it
Seems he knew it all the while
You best have an ID when you shop that grocery aisle

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Ha! Personally, I think he accidentally let slip some future nefarious Bond Villain scheme he's planning. These lyrics are a lot of fun, and a little cathartic. I'd love to see you work in a line about the "Big Cheese" and the price of brie.

Trump is such an asshole. That man says whatever craziness pops into his mind without a filter, and it doesn't matter if it's anywhere close to the truth. This is appropriately silly.

Trump - bad for the country; good for political lyrics! This manages to be fun and serious at the same time - like the reference to Moscow in the chorus.

Haha - really?! Whatever next? He is a buffoon isn't he. Biggrin This is a great write - love those clever rhymes and the humour sewn throughout!
