The Lyrics

Economizin' from Obama
He showed the boys his back
Workin' in his pajamas
Put Stimulus on track

They voted on it..
Return To Spender
Finances shown
Many billions
For each zone
Return To Spender
More shopping cash
Recession ender..
We're all hopin' for that backlash

We want some dollars in our mailbox
A nice check from the "Gov"
Large deduct for our taxes
To buy more stuff we love..

They voted on it..
Return To Spender
Banks give out loans
More employment
Turn some stones
Return To Spender
Restore self pride
Unwealth the wealthy
Gravy train..everybody ride..

It's time we all stood up for ourselves
And make the rich understand
We ain't goin' back to bein' dirt poor
Need cash in our hand..and lots more of it...

Return To Spender
Stimulus pack
Legal tender,
No more slack!

Good idea for a spoof, and well-done. Unfortunately, the refundable tax credit (the money that gets returned to the taxpayers) is just a small part of Obamessiah's Graft Party Poly-Pork Saturated Trillion Dollar Slow Acting Spend It Fast Give Green To ACORN Bill. Most of it is Return to Spend-ING, and only a tiny part of that spending is earmarked for anything that will actually create jobs. Most of it is just paybacks to Democratic constitutencies to secure their votes in future elections.

I hope they get my check to me in time to pay last year's taxes.

Good parody, but f**k 'em all.

Loved it AFW. Especially enjoyed the chorus each time they sang "they voted on it"...

great word substitutions

Another good one and very topical, AFW. Unfortunately, they want us to start spending again to boost the economy, but we may have to borrow to do so - part of the problem to begin with.

This parody stinks and it clearly shows how confused liberals really are. First of all, the so-called "stimulus" package is nothing more than welfare. Secondly, whatever happened to the Democrats in the JFK era who asked the question "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country?" All you seem to be concerned with, Mr. Airfarcewon, is all the hand-outs you can receive from the federal government. This "spread the wealth" mentality seems to be like a plague among Democrats. In your parody, you say "we ain't goin' back to bein' dirt poor". You wouldn't be dirt poor if you got off your lazy behind and got a job. That's my suggestion.

sir L'Air de Farce, Royal Duke 0'Edge, ~Le Marquis heConned0'me~ as much as I love to 'spend it' I couldn't unless I had my job ! ! Sir , here in NorCAL those are going away, some verrry far away . . . This week they announced that due to "No Mo Dough" 57,000 convicts must be released on the streets! ! Now, how are those folks going to get jobs ? ? ? Oh, God above, please help us !

AFW, pay no attention to Poli-Tick-Ly. He is just asking for trouble. He never has any kind words to say about anyone or their parodies. I, for one, love this one and think it's great. So that's why I'mma give you 555s.

Great job, and I think that even if Obama were to get everything fixed, America would go the way of the Roman Empire. The long-term solution would be for the US, Canada and possibly Mexico to form a union much like the one that brought England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland together as the United Kingdom, except as a democracy rather than a monarchy. Here are 555 stimulus checks for $555 each, from the Bureau of First-Class Parodies.

Apparently, Politickly Incorrect doesn't know what sarcasm means. Anyway, great job on spoofing the bailout mess, AFW! :)

Clever parody, AFW. There are lots of words to describe the Stimulus Bill; but "economizin'" is not one that I would use. I know that President Obama accurately stated that Republicans let spending get somewhat out of control in the 6 years they controlled Washington, but this bill is really a disservice to the future generations from whom we are borrowing.

Thanks all..for votes and comments...even Mr.Poli-dent-ly Incracked, Old PU. er..PI...wait a minute, PI..that sounds like Private Investigator...Quite fitting, you sound like someone who'd spend a lot of time investigating privates..and about the parody stinking, maybe you were just too close to the monitor and caught your own breath bouncing back.. I guess I could get off my lazy retired behind, and get a job, but It might mess up my social insecurity ..and I don't have to say you're way off base...your qwn name does...and maybe it's about time you stopped circling the old John McCain Airport with your weak right wing? The election's over, your side lost.

Well, I don't care about the politics (and am in the lucky position of not having to :) ). I just enjoy seeing well-written parodies - 555, AFW, spend it on whatever you choose!

AFW- about this parody "stinking", that smell must be from the B.O. candidate you voted for. His policies stink like a rotting corpse, as does your parody.
2Eagle - February 15, 2009 - Report this comment
I agree with Peregrin. I prefer humor to whipping up political debates. And keep in mind that the lyrics reflect popular viewpoints and not those of the author.

His policies do NOT stink. Poli-tinkly, you need to stop whipping up political debates like Eagle said, or you'll get a ban because we don't want to hear your libel.
