I wrote this song a month or so before the Republican National Convention after thinking that we were running out of options to stop the Trump Train. My humor tends to skew dark, so I imagined a kamikaze style situation, where the pilot sacrifices himself for the sake of the country. I’ve performed it live a few times, and let me tell you: there’s a real cathartic satisfaction in singing the last few lines, and I always choke up a bit.


I am Donald Trump’s private pilot I fly him everywhere taxi him to his outdoor rallies where he gives all of you a scare I’ve set up a fund for my children you can donate to it online cause when I'm gone they should be protected blaming them would be over the line for when we take off for Cleveland and clear the tri-state sprawl I will find a field and I will take her down screaming justice for you all screaming justice for you all -- Written and performed by Tim Heidecker Two Pies Publishing
