Donald Trump recited this at a recent campaign stop.
Thought y’all might want to see the original version first. It’s actually rather biblical in its implications, which I’m sure the song writers were aware.
Al Wilson is his name.”Northernsoul” is his game. The information on the video says this is rare footage…
AL WILSON – THE SNAKE (RARE VIDEO FOOTAGE) FROM THE SCENE SHOW OKLAHOMA CITY HOSTED BY RONNIE KAYE YEAR 1974. RECORD LABEL: SOUL CITY 767 YEAR 1968. COMPOSED BY: OSCAR BROWN JR. PRODUCED BY: JOHNNY RIVERS & MARC GORDAN.
Hey the white guy introducing Al Wilson has got his ownself some fine threads there in 1974. Been kinda down hill from there.
Below the jump is The Donald’s recitation. I hope his advisors get copyright permission so he can start singing it with a back-up band…
You have to admit, it loses something in translation. But as someone said in the comments on the original song:
Donald Trump 2016! Let’s follow the wisdom of this song, and guard ourselves against misguided compassion.
Another commenter says, “…Build a safe zone for the refugees“. I’d like to know why their own countries weren’t safe and why he thinks “building” something will solve the innate lawlessness and overweening sense of entitlement.
