We may never know the full story of how and why Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani held a press conference Saturday outside Four Seasons Total Landscaping on an industrial block of Philadelphia that also had an adult bookstore and a crematorium, but it has certainly been fun thinking about it, as one of the more perfect gracenotes on the day when Joe Biden claimed victory as the next President of the United States. Tim Heidecker has been among those pondering it, and turned those thoughts into a new song titled “Rudy At The 4 Seasons.”
Shared via Twitter, it’s a live take, featuring Tim sitting at the piano singing lines like “Standing out in front of a pile of manure / Spitting out lies that belong in the sewer / all while your boss is swinging his head in the sand / he sends you out to make a one last stand / you thought you were headed to a four star hotel / just a couple of miles from the Liberty Bell.”
The chorus goes “Rudy, whatcha gonna do now?” and later in the song he brings up another of Giuliani’s recent embarrassments. “With your hand down your pants maybe you don’t wanna do a hotel?” but also “Maybe next time/ You and your friends can find/ Someplace that isn’t next to a dildo store.”
Tim also notes that the song “would benefit from a full ‘band on the run’ style bombastic production” and tagged Jonathan Rado, who produced Heidecker’s new album Fear of Death. You can listen to “Rudy at the Four Seasons” here:
