Remy: Hallelujah (SNL Parody)

Remy finds a silver lining in a Trump presidency.

|

The first post-election episode of Saturday Night Live opened with a tribute to Hillary Clinton's loss and music legend Leonard Cohen's death. Whether you consider it "profoundly beautiful" or "embarrassing," we can all agree that…well…Kate Mckinnon sang a song. Now it's Remy's turn.

Lyrics:

I heard the news and I was sad
A crazy man who'll power grab
He'll probably bomb countries unapproved, yeah
The debt will double—Won't abate

He'll build up the surveillance state
I guess it won't be all that different, ooh yeah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

He might be so awful, So unhinged
Defense Secretaries leave and then
Imply his White House knows not what to do yeah

He'll wage a war on whistle-blows
there may be unexpected gropes
He'd be that nightmare
They call "deja vu" yeah

Hallelujah
Hellelujah

He might take the data from our phones
Have citizens killed by flying drones
Mock the disabled oh no we'll be through yeah
So if you're mad and on the streets
Concerned about this overreach
Well where've you been
It isn't all that new, yeah

But Hallelujah
Hallelujah
