Watch Fiona Apple Sing Anti-Donald Trump A Cappella Christmas Song


Fiona Apple put a hostile to Trump turn on the occasion great “The Christmas Song” – all the more usually known as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” – transforming it into an a cappella tribute, “Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire.”

The song appears in a video posted on the Tumblr page, Fiona Apple Rocks, indicating Apple warbling the sweet and savage tune in selfie-mode. Perused the full lyrics below.

In her parody, Apple flips Bob Wells and Mel Tormé’s unique verses of holiday warmth into spikes about the President-elect’s dash of advancing misogyny and prejudice on the campaign trail: “Everybody knows some money and entitlement/ Can help to make the season white/ Mothers of color with their kids out of sight/ Will find it hard to sleep at night.” Apple ends on a cathartic close as she pulls a Sinead O’Connor, ripping up a picture of Trump, and singing “Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas/ Donald Trump, fuck you.”

“Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire” is an astonishing treat from Apple, whose last collection, The Idler Wheel… landed in 2012. Not long ago, Apple joined artist lyricist Andrew Bird on “Left Hand Kisses,” a two part harmony off his new collection, Are You Serious.

“Trump’s Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire” Full Lyrics

Trump’s nuts simmering on an open fire

As he continues nipping at his adversaries.

You’ll cry unpleasant uncle

Every time he arrives

For he keeps clawing at your clothes

Everyone knows some money and entitlement

Can make the season white

Moms of shading with their children far away

Will think that it’s difficult to rest around evening time.

They realize that Trump is en route.

He has dark young men in hoodies bolted up on his sleigh

What’s more, every working man will cry

When they learn that Letch don’t care how you live or if you die

So, I’m putting forth this simple phrase

To kids from one to 92

Although it’s been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

Donald Trump, fuck you.
