Waking Up is Hard, With You

I don’t know about you, but this US-based Yiddishah momma isn’t sleeping so hot. The chaos of the world, the tweeter-in-chief, the backward direction of history, and the fears of a horrid times repeating all leave me with angst, anxiety and some pretty hefty carry-on baggage under the eyes these days. Nightmares, daymares, heart palpitations… oy vey iz mir.

a parody on Neil Sedaka’s lyrics, “Breaking up is Hard to Do”

we stupid huge win win
we stupid huge win win
Drumpf schlumpy trump dump trump
Drumpf schlumpy trump dump trump
Waking up is hard, with you
Don’t take my rights away from me
You’re breaking laws and changing history
Jamming justice, we know it’s true
Waking up is hard, with you
Looking back, phone alerts were much less scary
With just one tweet, you spooked the military
It’s Mueller time, the grand review
Waking up is hard, with you
They say that waking up is hard, with you
Now I know
I know we’re all screwed
Imploding health care and refugee bans
Are all of your decisions based on the teeny-tiny size of your hands?
I beg of you, stop the racist crap
Vlad, just share with us the wire tap
Global warming, it’s making me blue
Waking up is hard, with you
They say that waking up is hard, with you
Now I know
I know we are screwed
‘Murica should not be run by a business man
Are all of your decisions based on the teeny-tiny size of your hands?
we stupid huge win win
we stupid huge win win
Drumpf schlumpy trump dump trump
Drumpf schlumpy trump dump trump
Waking up is hard, with you
I don’t understand what is happening in our world. Ikh ton nit farshteyn voz iz gesheenish in aundzer velt.

  1. I can’t even watch the news and I’ve unfollowed most of the news media from my social media because its just so depressing.Every now and then I will watch the news just to see what’s happening but then I quickly turn it off because our President has become so predictable in his rants against his own people and against the rest of the world. I’d venture to say he has started a war with humanity itself.

  2. I feel bad that you and so many of your fellow Americans are having to go through this at the moment. I know our oen government in the UK are trying their hardest to shaft the majority of average brits at the moment, but nothing they do compares in scale to the orange twat.

  3. It’s certainly worrying times isn’t it, when the fate of america (or indeed the rest of the world) is resting in the hands of a man who is like a child playing at being president. #thatfridaylinky

  4. This is awesome! If you shake your head you can relieve yourself from a second of having in the back of your mind how dangerously stupid this all is. I read this with my meditation today: “World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.” ― His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Let’s hope our leaders become more compassionate. #FridayFrolics

  5. It’s horrible when your sleep is affected by situations that you have little power over Lisa.Try Lavender oil, my friend. If that doesn’t work perhaps you could envisage stuffing a wad of it into Trump’s mouth?! x

  6. Like Michelle I tend to avoid the news these days because the orange twat really scares me. I cant imagine how much worse that fear it when youre actually living in the USA xx

  7. We definitely live in a worrying age. I’ve had to stop reading the news so much as it’s all just too scary. I know that’s probably not the best thing for the world at large but it’s what I needed to do for me and my world that is my husband and kids. Great parody, just a shame it was ever necessary x

  8. I really don’t know where to start with T. He has his own fake news channel. I mean who does that?! He is so demented. I’m surprised he doesn’t come with a criminal record already. Waking up on this side of the pond is so dam hard with T being king on the other side. I feel for you. xx Thanks for linking up with #FabFridayPost

  9. It’s really worrying what will happen in the US and the rest of the world, but we have to get on with it, and see what happens, and hope that it’s not as bad as we all think. Thanks so much for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG. Claire x

    1. It’s hard to stay fun and playful with the latest events. I just learned his father, Fred Drumpf, was a know KKK member and has been arrested at hate rallies. I feel ill. 😳😪 #fridayfrivolity

  10. The world is such as scary and depressing place at the moment. Sometimes I can’t face watching the news. Well done for managing to make such a depressing situation funny. Pen x
