Original Performer:

Carole King

Parody Song Title:

"The Blight From Hell: Reign From Last November"

Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

OS lyrics, plus interesting trivia about the song, here.

Look what they write
Bad news each day
How can we tell you how much we dis you?

The atmosphere has been divisive, terribly
And so unpleasant: really shattered 'conomy
For all you've done to "help", your ratings slip away
A story, tell: diff'rent, last November

We don't need funny guys like Biden and his crew
White House: your home, but what accomplishments have you?
So greatly, I'm concerned: malaise won't go away
Voted: blight from hell, reign in last November

We all looked forward to those changes that you'd preach
Yes, ev'rybody soon would be just fine
But now, those promises seem so far out of reach
Reality: It is no friend of thine

It doesn't matter whether states are Red or Blue
You've lost not just the right, but lib-e-ral Dems, too
Can we keep living and survive, the USA?
We shall say, "farewell", 2012, November
Remember: dismember, oh
Left, Right: expel, 2012, November

Great parody. Wait about one more month after the date mentioned in the parody, and we won't have to worry about ANY politicians, because the world will end on December 21, 2012 according to my sources, who include the Mayans, Nostradamus and several History Channel specials.

The end is near, I very much fear, but not to worry, LET'S HAVE A BEER!!!! Great write, TT!!

I better get to crackin' if I'm going to make 1,000 parodies before the end of the world kills us all grave yard dead.

TT - Now to address the parody. I thought I knew all of Carol King's songs but I had to Youtube this one. Most amazing line:

Voted: blight from hell, reign in last November

Inspired? Methinks so. Another great politico write by the Turtle. Nothing slow about you TT. Let's just impeach the entire Congress and start all over. We live in angry times and you let us know it through your brilliant satire. High fives!

Andria: I saw that special... couldn't they at least wait until Christmas? ... thanks for v/c.

Mark Scotti: "Everyone needs something to believe in. I believe I'll have another beer" (old plaque). Great plan -- thanks, Mark!

Guy: Click the OS link for some explanation as to why this one might have slipped under your radar. Thanks much for the superlatives, and starting over, with the original Founding Fathers (we could include some Founding Mothers this time), is the best idea I've heard in a long time :)

Tt - That link 'splaned it. Lucy didn't need no 'splainin' to do. Thanks.

You'll find this hard to believe, but that's one reason that I frequently put such statements and links in song intros.

Whenever I think about the end of the world in 2012, predicted by Nostradamus, I would always avoid that prediction and refuse to believe it. Now I can't stop thinking about it, rather than being unable to avoid it. In my case, I do believe in God and only God would decide how long this world would last. That is, if we don't start changing our ways. But just in case it rings true, I would prepare for the worst. For now, the least we can do is to enjoy the rest of 2009,2010, 2011 while we still can. But this is a great parody you wrote as always. 5's!

Perish those thought of doom - they are bunk. Revelations addresses the end times and says that no man will know the day nor the hour. Revelations only tells us to be ready and promises that it will happen. So if you are prepared and right withthe Lord your fears will abate. And what you say about emjoying yourself for the next few years cannot even begin to compare to how the afterlife for the faithful will be. The Bible has a track record of 100% accurate prophesy - Nostradamus, the Mayans and a whole host of other soothsayers are only correct a very small percentage of the time.

Christie Marie M: Thanks for the v/c! ... If one must be serious, forget the predictions: None of us knows for a fact that we'll even wake up tomorrow, or be hit by a truck, have an airplane fall on us, etc. Plan for the future, but enjoy today. (end of speech).

Do you have your conspiracy membership card with you, sir? Believe me, I know more than a *little* bit about weedy, wicked weenies...

Dap for picking an obscure but good oldie, but the majority of Americans sang a different tune last November: "I can see clearly now, the reign is gone." And as Al Jolson (or was it Randy Bachman? or was it Ronald Reagan?) would say, You ain't seen nothin' yet!
TT @ Michael Pacholek - August 28, 2009 - Report this comment
Michael, for the first time in your life, you're correct: They did sing a different tune last November. And regretting it, as shown by the polls in which O is sinking faster than the Titanic. I believe you missed the parody that cited all of those polls; it's:

Please read it, especially the footnotes. Note the disapproval rating skyrocketing at an incredible rate. Reality sets in. Oh, and would you please point out the pacing errors, comparing the OS lines in question to the specific parody line? (I'm aware that a YouTube version has the last line start with "So it", whereas the web lyric I worked from didn't. Surely you have more than *that* to dock a point?)

Well, since I've been gone I see you and your partner in rhyme (FG) have penned 'bout a hundred premium parodies and this is 'bo' exception! Great work and fun pot stirrin' to boot!

TJC: TT takes sole blame for this one - leave poor, innocent FG out of it :) Yeah, gotta love stirin' that pot hehe. Thanks for v/c!
