Donnie Get Your Gun


This week we offer a sing-along tribute to our recently anointed Queen Mother based on the music and lyrics of the great Irving Berlin. In the tradition of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, Her/His Majesty will team up with a quintet of her/his favorite vocalists: Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore, Former U.S. President Barack Obama, and Trusted High-Ranking Advisor, Kellyanne Conway.

Before singing along with Donnie and her/his partners, you may wish to brush up on the refrain and chorus of our tune with Betty Hutton and Howard Keel.

  1. Pretty clever, Ron. Must have been fun writing.:-)
    Yup, hard to predict what awaits us. Like Thomas Hardy once said, “if a way to the better there be, it exacts a full look at the worst.” Gotta keep the hope…..
