Fiona Apple Attacks Donald Trump In Christmas Song

Fiona Apple has put an anti-Donald Trump spin on a cover version of a classic Christmas song!

On her creative version of ‘The Christmas Song’ – more commonly known by its lyrics ‘Chestnuts roasting on an open fire’, which was penned by songwriters Bob Wells and Mel Tormé – Fiona Apple sings about how she’d like to see, ‘Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire!’

Fiona Apple has just uploaded a video for the track she’s hilariously entitled ‘Trump's Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire’ on her Tumblr page, Fiona Apple Rocks.

At the end of the video, Apple pulls a Sinead O’Connor by ripping up a picture of President-elect Donald Trump and declares, “Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas/ Donald Trump, fuck you!”

Here’s the complete lyrics to Fiona Apple’s colourful version of the festive song:

Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire

As he keeps nipping at his foes.

You'll cry creepy uncle

Every time he arrives

For he keeps clawing at your clothes

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.

They know that Trump is on his way.

He's got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh

And every working man is going to cry

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

So I'm offering 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.
