LYRICS TO KING OF CORONA
Written by The Freedom Toast
The Donald got fondled in his dreams
The day of inauguration
He woke and found out that he had to get out
Or get driven to Union Station
“I gotta stop the steal!”
We heard the old man squeal
“Gotta stop the steal,
“Oh this can’t be real!”
So he doubled down and started to frown
At America’s selection
And Jared said, “oy, I would even turn goy
If we could hold our own private election.”
He went on his way
Back down to Mar-a-Lago
He went his way
He’s taking his time
He should take some more
Goodbye to Donaaald, the King of Corona
And on every hole,
No He’ll never shoot par
Yes, on every hole, ,
You know He’ll never shoot par
Well Corona spread, half a million dead,
So he blamed the opposition.
And he heard the debates
About sticking with Gaetz,
But he doesn’t like competition.
Now he’s gone away
Don’t matter where he’s going
He’s gone away
He should take his time
‘Cause we just don’t care
Goodbye to Donald, the King of Corona
And on every hole, You know He’ll never shoot par
Yes, on every hole,
No He’ll never shoot par
Yeah he’s such a fool, ya know
Thinks he’s a rockin star!
And on every hole, ya know,
He’ll never shoot par!
ABOUT THE SOURCE MUSIC
"Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" is a song by American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the second single from his second, self-titled studio album (1972), released on Columbia Records.
The song is about two boys ("Me and Julio") who have broken a law, although the exact law that has been broken is not stated in the song. When "the mama pajama" finds out what they have done, she goes to the police station to report the crime. The individuals are later arrested, but released when a "radical priest" intervenes.
The meaning and references in the song have long provoked debate. In a July 20, 1972 interview for Rolling Stone, Jon Landau asked Simon: "What is it that the mama saw? The whole world wants to know." Simon replied "I have no idea what it is… Something sexual is what I imagine, but when I say ‘something’, I never bothered to figure out what it was. Didn’t make any difference to me."
More recently, in October 2010, Simon described the song as "a bit of inscrutable doggerel", while the "radical priest" has been interpreted as a reference to Daniel Berrigan, who was featured on the cover of Time on January 25, 1971, near when the song was written.
The song mentions "Rosie, the queen of Corona", referring to Corona, a neighborhood in Queens near where Simon grew up.
In 1988, Simon released a video for the song to promote his greatest hits compilation Negotiations and Love Songs. The video was filmed at Mathews-Palmer Park in Hell’s Kitchen, which was standing in for Halsey Junior High School in Forest Hills, Queens, the neighborhood in which Simon grew up and met Art Garfunkel in high school. Many of the children featured in the video were from that same school; Kia Jeffries, who sang on Simon’s The Rhythm of the Saints album and cast the video had attended as well.
It features an introduction by hip hop emcees (and then-fellow Warner Bros. Records label mates) Big Daddy Kane and Biz Markie. Main Source member Large Professor also makes a cameo towards the end. The video depicts adults interacting with the youth of an inner-city schoolyard. It shows Simon playing basketball and stickball with the children, and it also features basketball player Spud Webb, baseball legend Mickey Mantle, and football coach-commentator John Madden giving tips to young athletes.
