Stupidity R U M P

Our version of Solomon Burke's 1962 track "Stupidity" was going to be with the original lyrics but during the play out the idea of using "Stupidity R U M P" was too good an opportunity to miss. So a little rewrite of the lyrics was on the cards.

We hope they give you a smile.

No offence is meant to anyone by this little bit of satirical fun. Honest guv.


All around the world...
Every boy and girl
Take a lesson from me
I’m Mister Stupidity

Obama used to think I was silly
He even made me look like a fool
So now I’m in the Whitehouse
He don’t look so cool

So come along with me
See what a tool I can be
Read a Tweet from me
I’m Mister Stupidity

You think my hair looks so silly
That I’m just a stinking rich old fool
But I don't take criticism
I bullied everyone at school

I’m going to build a wall
Make it nice and tall
So watch me on TV
I’m Mister Stupidity

(play out)
You made me President
Just how the Russians meant
You think I don’t like Blacks
Or all those lying hacks
I just want things done my way
+ I think that’s O- K K K
No more Musilms in here
I think you get my idea
Not one Mexican more
coming though our front door

Please help me build my wall
because my hands are to small
