(To the tune of “Kids,” by Lee Adams and Charles Strouse from the Broadway Musical Bye Bye Birdie(1958))
No one wants to hear about facts today.
Inconvenient truths that get in the way.
About climate warming or health care reform.
Not debated. Just evaded.
We’re smothering in fake news.
Folks today prefer unreality.
What you read on Facebook is fantasy.
The President sells baloney.
They cheer for him anyway.
Cause, no one cares about facts today.
You believe what big corporations say?
Are you getting yours from the NRA?
When you can’t trust the headlines
The breadlines ain’t far away.
Oh, no one cares about facts today.
