The musician revealed, "The song was 'My d—k’s bigger than your d—k'"
The Oscar winner behind the music in Toy Story and Cars wrote an unreleased song about Donald Trump’s penis.
For his first album in nine years, Dark Matter, Randy Newman has a track titled “Putin” in reference to the Russian president. And in a recent interview with Vulture, the musician explained why he had a Vladimir Putin song and not one about Donald Trump.
“I did write about him,” he said. “But the language was too vulgar. It felt too easy. The song was, ‘My d—k’s bigger than your d—k / It ain’t braggin’ if it’s true / My d—k’s bigger than your dick / I can prove it too / There it is! There’s my d—k / Isn’t that a wonderful sight? / Run to the village, to town, to the countryside / Tell the people what you’ve seen here tonight.'”
He continued: “The hook was ‘What a d—k!’ Duh-duh-duh. ‘What a d—k!’ But I just didn’t want to add to the problem of how ugly the conversation we’re all having is, so I didn’t put it out.”
Newman admits he’s unsure why he wasn’t able to figure out the right language and direction for a Trump song, but could for his Russian counterpart. “The funny thing was that the song I ended up writing wasn’t even that hard on him, despite the fact he’s a terrible person,” he added of “Putin.”
