Rolling Stone observed that revelers outside the White House on Saturday had turned to Steam’s 1969 hit “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” to bid farewell to Mr. Trump while the streaming of Queen’s “We Are the Champions” had increased since the election.
The comedian Tim Heidecker wrote a mocking song, “Rudy at the 4 Seasons,” about the recent news conference by Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer. That event, where Mr. Giuliani alleged voter fraud, was held outside a Philadelphia landscaping business located near an adult bookstore and a crematory.
But while Mr. Forman characterized his song as “comic relief,” he nevertheless presented the fiction that the election was fraudulent as if it were a fact.
In an interview, Mr. Forman, a father of four, said he had been inspired to write the song because he believed the election had been fraudulent. “I consider myself a strong patriot and there are a lot people in the country who believe the election was stolen from us,” he said.
Asked to provide evidence of fraud, he said: “The evidence will come out. Our president is taking care of that. What happened is crazy to me: Trump was winning all the swing states and legal votes should be counted.”
Mr. Forman, who sings in bars in Florida, said he wanted to make people smile during a difficult period and had been heartened by the fact that even Democrats told him the song had made them laugh. He said he had written another song that went viral, inspired by the Netflix series “Tiger King.” That song has an expletive-laced misogynistic title.
He added that, if the legal process examining the vote was exhausted, he would accept President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. as president.
Speaking on “The Howie Carr Show” on Newsmax, the right-wing media app, Mr. Forman said a friend had come up with the title for his latest song. Mr. Forman said he hoped to write another version of the song about Mr. Trump’s victory. He omitted that Mr. Biden had won both the vote in the Electoral College and the popular vote in the election.
