A friend of mine adapted a song from My Fair Lady (Without You) by changing all the "without you"s to "despite Trump"s and making a number of other clever changes. She said I could post it. The parodist is Biddy Greene, retired maths lecturer from the Engineering Faculty at the University of Cape Town.


With apologies to Alan Jay Lerner

Despite Trump

There'll be spring every year despite Trump
New England still will be there despite Trump
There'll be fruit on the tree
And a shore by the sea
There'll be donuts for tea despite Trump

Art and music will thrive despite Trump
Robert Frost will survive despite Trump
And there still will be rain on that plain up in Maine
Even that will remain despite Trump

Sense can still rule the land despite Trump
The White House will stand despite Trump
And without much ado
We will all muddle through despite Trump

Without Trump pulling it, the tide comes in
Without Trump twirling it, the Earth can spin
Without Trump pushing them, the clouds float free
If they can manage despite Trump then, ducky, so can we

We shan't feel alone despite Trump
We can stand on our own despite Trump
Who knows, who can tell --
We might do bloody well
Despite Trump!
