The Lyrics

Taking on the nation's
Problems will be a strain.
Folks got faux expectations
After eight years of pain.

Once we were a rich land;
Now we are so poor.
Some think that magically their life
Over four years will soar.

He's smart, there's no denyin'
When compared to the swine
Who's gone, after leaving D.C.,
Burn-nose pile left behind.

Some think he walks on water,
The Messiah come home.
At least he's not a douchebag
Like the freak who's now gone.

So eight years on, we abort
The putz who was our bane.
For him, no expectations--
He's passed over for brains.
