My Career Just Peaked....#0

as a favor to Katie Couric for her big benefit tomorrow, I just returned from rehearsing with someone I wrote some special lyrics for....

...drumroll....

DONALD TRUMP!

I can die a happy man now

I am about to make him a rehearsal tape, and want to call him by a "pop star" nick name.

I'm thinking "DD Tru", but I am open to suggestions

I have to call my mother now to tell her

Since it's for Katie's benefit, I'm hoping that the song is called 'Donnie's Got a Nice Clean Ass' sung to the tune of 'Mama, I'm a Big Girl Now'.

If Frank Sinatra was "The Chairman of the Board" and Bruce Springsteen is "The Boss" then Donald Trump could be "The Head Honcho"!

"I'm learning to dig deep down inside and find the truth within myself and put that out. I think what we identify with in popular music more than anything else is when someone just shares a truth that we can relate to. That's what I'm searching for in my music." - Ron Bohmer

"I broke the boundaries. It wasn't cool to be in plays- especially if you were in sports & I was in both." - Ashton Kutcher

Marc, dear...

You've got the wrong Trump.

Not everyone in the world gets to be teased by a famous Broadway composer...

Marc~ I hope you slipped in some lyrics about Ivanna, who should really write another book called "Smart Wives Club", not that I'm endorsing divorce. But the Chicago lyric "you would have done the same" truly applies.

I could give you some great titles, but I don't need to any more entanglements. LOL!
