The Lyrics

When Reagan took office on January 21,1081, the USA was at low ebb while the USSR reigned on high. It took about three years to reverse the tide. Obama has had six years so far to ruin our international reputation; what will things be like on 1/21/2917? Something tells me that the USA will need an even bigger fist to set things to right by that time..,.
Twenty Seventeen

(Sung to Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson)



Obama's gotten friendly...
with our friendly enemies
Don't you think that is strange...

The US is in a bad state..
Brought to hell by world ingrates..
That definitely has to change...

Going with damage control..
trying not to fall in a hole
Until we take back this scene...

Shari'a doesn't belong here...
But we're stuck with it, I do fear...
Until we get real twenty seventeen...

Virulent PC, it must be put down!
ISIS and their kind six feet in the ground!! We'll
Make a list, take down names
Cause some change, and cause a scene...

Teach the World Despots the meaning of fear..
Tell the illegals to get out of here!! We'll
Use our fists, play their game
Until a twenty seventeen..


We need to be respected..
no longer rejected...
but the world treats us so mean...

Making lists for all they've done
just like in '81
We will own the twenty seventeen..

Russia will bow to the Eagle once more..
As we use the PRC to mop up the floor...
Eagle claws, Eagle might
Make it right, if you know what I mean..

If the Hejaz won't quit pounding on its war drums...
(They'll be) a black glassine sea under a nuclear sun..
Make a twenty seventeen..

The Concrete haired troubador..
Policy through revolving doors
That will have to change immediately but
Even with idiot John, gotta keep moving on
A new scene, in twenty seventeen..

No more ME oil, we'll be free at last
Okace rhw embargo back in the past, gotta (bid you adeiu)
Put the sheiks, back in their place
Set the pace and once more own the scene...

Cast from their darkness and into the sun (Into the sun)
Stomping down fast as the cockroaches run I gotta
Ready arms...for doing harm
Weakness twenty seventeen, twenty seventeen, twenty seventeen

"Eagle claws, Eagle might" Written by an American Nazi without a squeak of protest, until now.

The economy is doing well. Millions of people have health insurance who didn't before. The auto industry is saved. The stupid war is over. Osama bin Laden is dead. Obama is ten times the President that Reagan was, and a hundred times the man. And on January 20, 2017, President Hillary Clinton will be twice the woman that her Republican opponent is, whoever he turns out to be.

Right! Inauguration is on January 20. In 1981, that was the date of Reagan's first inauguration. In 1985, because the 20th was on a Sunday, his second public inauguration was held on the 21st.
The USSR never, ever reigned on high. By 1981, it was falling apart, having lost the space race, being bogged down in Afghanistan, getting boycotted in the Olympics the previous year, being led by a dying Brezhnev, and spending itself into bankruptcy trying to keep up in the arms race.
