Defying Hillary

Aside from names, I changed a total of  20 lyrics in this song.

Prescient, no?

 

Hillary:
Bernie, why couldn’t you have stayed calm, for once!
Instead of flying off the handle!

I hope you’re happy
I hope you’re happy now
I hope you’re happy how you’ve
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you’re clever

Bernie:
I hope you’re happy
I hope you’re happy too
I hope you’re proud how you would
Grovel in submission
To feed your own ambition

Hillary & Bernie:
So though I can’t imagine how
I hope you’re happy
Right now

Hillary:
Bernie, listen to me.
Just say you’re sorry!

You can still be in the White House
What you’ve worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted

Bernie:
I know
But I don’t want it
No!
I can’t want it anymore

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by
The rules of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes
And leap

It’s time to try defying Hillary
I think I’ll try defying Hillary
And you can’t pull me down

Hillary:
Can’t I make you understand
You’re having delusions of grandeur?

Bernie:
I’m through accepting limits
‘Cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try I’ll never know
Too long I’ve been afraid of
Losing love, I guess I’ve lost
Well if that’s love
It comes at much too high a cost

I’d sooner buy defying Hillary
Kiss me goodbye, I’m defying Hillary
And you can’t pull me down!

Hillary, come with me.
Think of what we could do together!

Unlimited
Together we’re unlimited
Together we’ll be the greatest team
There’s ever been, Hillary!

Both:
Dreams the way we planned ’em

If we work in tandem

There’s no fight we cannot win
Just you and I, defy the Oligarchy!
With you and I defy the Oligarchy!

They’ll never bring us down!

Bernie:
Well, are you coming?

Hillary hears faint horns playing “Hail to the Chief” offstage right.
She turns back to Bernie, frustrated:

I hope you’re happy
Now that you’re choosing this

Bernie:
You too
I hope it brings you bliss

Both:
I really hope you get it
And you don’t live to regret it
I hope you’re happy in the end
I hope you’re happy my friend

Bernie leaps atop a unicorn and addresses a 20,000+ crowd in Sacramento:
So if you care to find me
Look to the Western sky!
As someone told me lately
Everyone deserves the chance to fly
And if I’m flying solo
At least I’m flying free
To those who ground me
Take a message back from me!

Tell them how I am defying Hillary
I’m flying high, defying Hillary
And soon I’ll match them in renown
And nobody in all DC
No pundit that could ever be
Is ever gonna bring me down!

Hillary, in a fit of passion, throws two handfuls of dollar bills up into the air:
I hope you’re happy

An army of internet trolls spring up at her feet and jab their fingers at Bernie:
He’s just like
McGovern!
Get him!

Bernie, still astride the unicorn:
Bring me down!

Trolls and Hillary:
Or like Gene McCarthy!
So we got to bring him
Down!
