Disillusionment and anger over the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president has sparked protests, warnings, and concern. Well, now there's a damn catchy tune.

Da da da (da da da)!

John Johnston put his feelings about Trump to The Proclaimers' hit from the late '80s, "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)." He wrote the lyrics as part of an event called Weird Al Karaoke, which features people performing original parody songs.

Da da da (da da da)!

Johnson is a Brit originally from Shepherd's Bush in London, and now lives in Calgary. He passed his Canadian citizenship test last week, and doesn't actually have a Scottish accent.

Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da!

500 Miles (from Donald Trump) - full lyrics

When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna be waking up in the country next to you.
When I go out, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be wondering what the f**k you're gonna do.
Cuz you're a liar, you're a groper just like Boris
but somehow you are in the Oval Office.
And if I protest yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's protesting 'bout you.
But I don't care for Donald Trump
And I don't want four years at all
Just to see a man who lies and cheats and whips up hatred
With a wall.
When I'm working, yes you know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be working to make sure that you get stopped.
And when the money, comes in for the deals you do
I'll bet almost every penny is corrupt.
And your message (what a message!) is to to fear what you don't know
I'm gonna be the man who tells you that you're wrong.
And when you f**k up (cuz you'll f**k up) well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who calls you "f**ked up Don!"
But I don't care for Donald Trump
And I don't want four years at all
Just to see a man who lies and cheats and whips up hatred
With a wall
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da
Well I'm watching, well you know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's watching what you do.
And when I'm dreaming, well I know I'm gonna dream
That nothing that you ever said comes true.
When you're sexist (cuz you're sexist) well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who tells you that's not on
And when you're racist (cuz you're racist) yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who said so all along.
I'm gonna be the man who said that you were wrong
But I don't care for Donald Trump
And I don't want four years at all
Just to see a man who lies and cheats and whips up hatred
With a wall.
