Alternative Facts

I’ve been flying low
for most of my life
just an under the radar guy
But I’m starting to see a new way to roll
and blow the lid off the sky
I always thought the truth mattered
Upheld honesty to the max
Now I’m soaring high and free
on them alternative facts

Have you ever heard
Of Little Walter?
Man that cat really blew
a little secret
I’ll share just with you
I taught him everything he knew!
Stupid me, thinking truth mattered
But in truth, it just distracts
Now I’m reaching my vast potential
On my alternative facts

Played a tune for the Pope
At his pad in Rome
The poor man dropped to one knee
Said to me “George,
Can I make you a saint?”
I told him “that’ll suit me to a T!”
Why’d I ever think the truth mattered
All it does is hold you back
Now I’m soaring high and free
on them alternative facts

So if you’re flying low
Discontent with your life
And ready to make a move?
What’s it gonna be:
Man or mouse?
Don’t be shackled by the truth
Only fools think that truth matters
When in truth, it just distracts
You’ll never reach your vast potential
without alternative facts

And once you get ‘em babe
Ain’t no going back
And once you’re hooked man
Ain’t no going back
Say what?
Oh - you want to know what to do when someone calls you on your alternative facts?
That’s easy!
I’ve got an answer for everything
You know what you tell ‘em?
Here’s what you tell ‘em:
All you got is fake news!
Yeah, that’s what you tell em
Fake news!
Ahhhhh
Fake news!
Alternative facts!
Fake news!
Alternative facts!
