This ‘Hallelujah’ Parody Mocking SNL’s Tribute To Hillary Clinton Will Leave You In Stitches

'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.'

Reason magazine’s Remy Munasifi just dropped a hilarious parody version of the late Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” mocking “Saturday Night Live’s” awkward funeral for Hillary Clinton.

His lyrics point out that many of the concerns those have about a Trump presidency — that he will run amok with power — could have been curtailed if the Left had stood up to President Obama. Here they are in full:

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
Hallelujah

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
