"When I grow up, I will be president and build big walls, ban Muslims, play with Putin's balls," sang Minchin as a young Trump in the 'Matilda' spoof.

Donald Trump: The Musical is inevitable, right?

James Corden offered a potential preview on Monday's Late Late Show by tweaking the lyrics of "When I Grow Up" from the stage hit Matilda the Musical.

In the performance, Tim Minchin (who wrote Matilda's music and lyrics) portrayed the president alongside Ben Platt as press secretary Sean Spicer and Abigail Spencer as adviser Kellyanne Conway. Corden, meanwhile, took on chief strategist Steve Bannon. The song saw them wondering what running the world would be like as adults.

"When I grow up, I will be president and build big walls, ban Muslims, play with Putin's balls," sang Minchin as a young Trump. "I will eliminate Obamacare, replace it with, well, I don't care."
