The Lyrics

My title refers to his voting record. I wrote a similar ode for his 48th last year. I hope to write only two more. The meter is the usual 6/6/7/6 except in the last stanza, where I substituted for "Mister President" from TOS sung to JFK by MM.
Happy birthday to O!
By next birthday he'll grow
Five new seats in our Congress
From state Puerto Rico. [1]

Just how old is he now?
Forty-nine; 'twill exceed
The new number of states when
Three on border secede. [2]

Can he pass cap-and-trade?
Bring illegals from shade? [3]
Will he squeeze Dubya's lemons
To make pink lemonade?

For one year and a half, [4]
He and radical staff
Helped me [5] birth brain-twisting parodies,
Happy mirth days to laugh.
[1] Two Senators and three Representatives (based on population)
[2] 50 + PR - AZ - NM - TX =48. I loved the old 6-by-8-star flag; it will fly again if this comes true.
[3] "... come out of the shadows."
[4] It's actually been much longer, including his campaign and transition from election to inauguration.
[5] ... and other writers ...

BJM - Well, you're no Marilyn Monroe! BUT...you're every bit as good as The Capitol Steps and way better than Mark Russell! It's all here, cleverly and innocently as the original song. Thanks. ;D

OMR: As a fan of The Capitol Steps and Mark Russell (where is he now?), I'm flattered by your comparisons. I try to be humorous and warn of dangerous plans and policies at the same time. Obama never pauses. You are one of the "others" in footnote 5.

Sir, I prefer ~MM's~ song, "Two Girls From Little Rock", a very cute song! Not many folks are aware that ~MM~ had a fairly good singing voice . . .
