President Donald Trump can add lyricist to his resume.

An image of Trump’s handwritten notes, taken by Getty Images photographer Mark Wilson, in which Trump denied seeking a quid pro quo with Ukraine, went viral on Wednesday.

The notes, written in black, mostly capital letters read, “I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelenskiy to do the right thing. This is the final word from the pres of the U.S.”

Once Twitter got a hold of the image, many remarked that the words sounded like a variety of different musical styles, and so, the internet turned the words into a song.

Musician Nick Lutsko tweeted that the notes felt like an emo song, and so, over the strum of a guitar, the words of the president were re-imagined as a song that could’ve been sung by bands like Fall Out Boy or My Chemical Romance.

Lutsko told NBC News he once worked for the now-defunct entertainment company Super Deluxe where he made a series of “Emo Trump” songs, a few of which went viral and one even earned him a Webby award nomination.

“When the photo of Trump’s notes started circulating, my first inclination was that they looked like emo Trump lyrics,” Lutsko said. “Then others started tagging me so I knew it had to be done.”

Lutsko’s song has been viewed on Twitter more than 408,000 times since it was posted on Wednesday.

The words struck a different chord with composer Alex Kliment, who re-imagined the notes as a song by punk rock band The Ramones.

Kliment’s version of the song has been viewed more than 1.3 million times on Twitter.

A third iteration of the notes was posted by a performer who goes by BenJamminAsh, who felt the words resonated more as a song by British singer-songwriter Morrissey.

to say, I got inspired and put WAY to much effort into this,” BenJamminAsh wrote.

That iteration has been viewed more than 200,000 times on Twitter.

While Trump’s words were turned into a song by several people, others used the notepad as a new template, on which to create memes.
