Barbra Streisand Parodies "Send In The Clowns" With New Trump Lyrics


Appearing at an LGBT fund raiser for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in New York City last night, Barbra Streisand delivered a very clever parody version of the Stephen Sondheim classic, "Send In The Clowns," retitled "Who Needs This Clown?" with newly penned lyrics which skewered Republican Donald Trump.

Here's the parody lyrics via BroadwayWorld:

VERSE 1
IS HE THAT RICH?
MAYBE HE'S POOR?
'TIL HE REVEALS HIS RETURNS
WHO CAN BE SURE?
WHO NEEDS THIS CLOWN?

VERSE 2
SOMETHING'S AMISS
I DON'T APPROVE
IF HE WERE RUNNING THE FREE WORLD,
WHERE WOULD WE MOVE?
NAME ME A TOWN?
JUST WHO IS THIS CLOWN?

BRIDGE
AND WHEN WE THOUGHT WE'D HEARD IT ALL
HUFFING AND PUFFING ABOUT HIS BIG FANTASY WALL
MAKING HIS ENTRANCE ON STAGE...
HE JUST SHOOTS FROM THE HIP
HE'S FULL OF BULL
HE'S LOST HIS GRIP!

["Since Putin likes me, I like him! Sounds like a 4-year old!"]

VERSE 3
AND IF BY CHANCE
HE GETS TO HEAV'N
EVEN UP THERE HE'LL DECLARE...
CHAPTER ELEV'N!
WHO'D HIRE THIS CLOWN?
THIS SAD VULGAR CLOWN...
"YOU'RE FIRED" YOU CLOWN!

BRIDGE 2
HILLARY'S KIND...
SMART THAT IS CLEAR
WHILE SHE IS GIVING US HOPE...TRUMP IS SELLING US FEAR
LOOK HOW HE CHANGES HIS VIEWS EVERY TIME THAT HE SPEAKS
IT'S LIE AFTER LIE
CAN'T TAKE EIGHT MORE WEEKS!

VERSE 4
THIS IS NO FARCE
MAYBE HE'S BROKE?
IS THIS "THE ART OF HIS DEAL"
OR SOME AWFUL JOKE?
YOU'VE GOT TO ADMIT...
THIS SILLY HALF-WIT...
IS SO FULL OF ­_ _ _ _!
