One Day More

I don't write music. I do, however, plagiarize a LOT of music, change the lyrics to suit my purposes, and/or randomly belt out Broadway showtunes because they have a line that sort-of-relates-to-the-topic-but-only-kind-of. 

All. The Time.

So, it should be no surprise that this is the song running through my head, and who I think should sing the different parts. Surprisingly, I had to change very little of the lyrics (yes, "one more day with him not caring" is the original). The more you know Les Miserables, the more this makes sense. 

Sing along with me, will you?

National Guard: One day more
Another day, another destiny
This never-ending road to 16-P
These right-wing men who committed crimes
Might actually come a second time
One day more

Trump: I will not concede even today
How can I Tweet when we are parted?

America: One day more

Biden Voters: Tomorrow Trump’ll be worlds away
And yet with Joe my world restarted

Melania: One more day all on my own

Kelly-Ann and George Conway: Will we ever meet again?

Melania: One more day with him not caring

Jerry Falwell, Jr <<staring at Trump>>: I was born to be with you

Reince Pribus: What a life I might have known

Franklin Graham <<also stares at Trump>>: And I swear I will be true

Reince Pribus: But he never saw me there

Trump Supporters: One more day before the storm
Do we follow where he goes?
At the barricades of DC
Shall I join conspiracies there?
When our sanity fully falls
Do I stay or do I dare?
Will Rudy take his place with me?
The time is now
The day is here

America: One day more

National Guard: One day more to insurrection
We will nip it in the bud
We'll be ready for Bugaloo Bois
We will wipe their face paint off


America: One day more!

Fox News Reporters: Watch 'em run amuck
Catch 'em as they fall
Never know your luck
When there's a free for all
Here a little lie
There a little blame
Most our viewers are stupid
So they won’t catch much

Joe Biden: One day to a new beginning
Raise the flag of freedom high
Every man will be an equal
Trump will never be a king
There's a new world for the winning
There's a constituency to be won
Do you hear 81 million sing?
My place is here
I inaugurate with you

American People: One day more

FBI: We will join these people's socials
We will follow where they go
We will learn their Parler secrets
We will know the lies they know

American People: One day more

NewsMax: Watch 'em run amuck
Catch 'em as they fall
Never speak the truth
When there's a free for all

National Guard: We'll be ready for the nat’lists

Most of America: Tomorrow we'll be far away

Republicans in Congress who voted against certification: Tomorrow is the judgement day

Most of America: Tomorrow we'll be far away

Congress: Tomorrow is the judgement day

Everyone: Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store


One more dawn

One more day

ONE DAY MORE
