AC/DC: Girls Got Rhythm Retooled to Fit the Day, By Mark Erickson

My favorite rock vocalist is Freddie Mercury of Queen. Also in my top five are Randy Blythe of Burn the Priest/Lamb of God, Michael Akerfeldt of Opeth, pre-cape Elvis Presley, and Bon Scott from AC/DC. (James Brown “ranks” #2 if the category expands beyond rock.) Regarding the last front man, I cranked Back in Black during a recent workout and then selected its immediate predecessor. Could I karaoke “Girls Got Rhythm?” No, that would be embarrassing; however, I retooled the lyrics to fit the day.

I been around the world
I’ve groped a million girls
Ain’t one of them got
What Melania she got
She’s stealin’ the spotlight
Knocks me off my feet
She’s enough to start a landslide
Just a walkin’ down the street
Wearin’ dresses so tight
While I’m sending a Tweet
About to blow me out
No doubt about it can’t live without it
The wife’s got rhythm (wife’s got rhythm)
The wife’s got rhythm (wife’s got rhythm)
She got the White House rhythm (White House rhythm)
The wife’s got rhythm

I like The Donald’s brand
Too much for any man
Trump gives the first degree
I really satisfy me
Love me Mister Putin
Snoopin’ and more
Enough to stop a freight train
Or start the third world war
You know I’m not losin’ sleep
But I’m in too deep
Like a body needs blood
No doubt about it can’t live without it
The Trump’s got rhythm (Trump’s got rhythm)
Putin’s got rhythm (Putin’s got rhythm)
He got the hackin’ rhythm (hackin’ rhythm)
Putin’s got the rhythm

You know he moves like sin
And when he lets me in
It’s like liquid love
No doubt about it can’t live without it
Putin’s got rhythm (he got rhythm)
Putin’s got rhythm (he got rhythm)
He got the hackin’ rhythm (hackin’ rhythm)
Putin’s got rhythm
You know he really got the rhythm (he got rhythm)
He got the hackin’ rhythm (hackin’ rhythm)
Rock and roll rhythm (rock and roll rhythm)
Russia got rhythm
