LYRICS:
Time to come together
(We elected a bigot)
Time for us to unite
(We elected a bigot)
Time to love each other
(We elected a bigot)
Everything’ll be alt-right--
Sorry, all white--
Sorry, alright.
YEAH.

Put our differences aside
As one America
Who elected a bigot
Stop whining
You lost.

He didn’t mean it
(Mexicans are rapists)
We hope he didn’t mean it
(POWs aren’t heroes)
He’ll be oh so different now
You'll see.
Gotta stop dividing
Stop inciting and fighting
This man who divides,
Incites and fights

Move forward
Come together

And forget, forget
Before it all goes south
Forget all those things
That he said with his mouth!

But Matt... Matt, come on buddy...
This isn’t what we need
Gotta ignore his every
Misogynistic screed
'Cuz if you call a bigot a bigot
You’re bigoted too
If you name-call a name-caller
The name-caller’s you

Tolerate intolerance
Or you’re intolerant
How’s that for logic?

Don’t you see?
He's just a man
Who said some bigoted things
(Not a bigot)
Won’t condemn
What some bigotry brings
(Not a bigot)
If that's not a bigot
I don't know what a bigot is
He bragged about his dick
And how big it is
Oh god...

Forget, forget
Before it all goes south
Forget all those things
That he said with his mouth!
True, you can’t know his heart
But listening to the words he says
Seems a pretty good start!

It'll be okay
(Unless you’re a Muslim)
No time to fight
(Unless you’re disabled)
Fight another day
(Unless you’re a woman)
It’ll be alt-right--
Sorry, all white--
Sorry, alright.
Why do I keep doing that??

Put our differences aside
As one America
Not much’ll change for me
But if you’re LGBT
Or an immigrant...
We'll see!
