Advice to the president To help him in his time of need Try not to look like you look Try not to say what you're saying Everyone knows you're a crook Even the atheists are praying Either don't ever be who you are Or don't ever do what you're doing Hide in the bushes in the meantime So no one can see what is brewing Don't ever get out of bed Be grateful that business is boomin' And that crazy shit that pops in your head Don't ever say it to a human Don't speak before or after one Don't tweet if it's day or night time I know you've got a lot to say But in this case there really is no right time.

about

First even remotely topical song I've ever felt moved to write, and I hope it's the last; still, great fun to record, great horn arrangement by Berke McKelvey, who also played woodwinds and organ; John Clark on string bass; Kami Lyle on trumpet and daredevil soprano; Tommy Dadmun on last minute trombone; and The Valet aka Fred Boak, also on daredevil soprano (among other things.)

There's also a video, shot live in front of the White House around midnight on Nov. 21, 2017 (we think he was home, even!)
