The Lyrics

Just in time for the Democratic National Convention, a parody about the DNC's "pressumptive" nominee for Prez. I know, I know...it's a little too easy given the title...but, hey, I had to think of SOMETHING. Share and Enjoy!
(Spoken: I'm Barack Obama, and I apporve this parody)

An August day
At our National Convention
I'm off to Washington
With about four thousand delegates in my wake
I'm certain that the White House I shall take

I am Barack
I am Oba-a-a-a-a-a-ama

I'm ready for
Elections large and gen'ral
I'm ready to make some change
Changes in the country with ev'ry word I say
While changing my opinion ev'ry day

I am Barack
I am Oba-a-a-a-a-a-ama

Don't talk McCain
I've heard his clap before
He's older than Reagan was
I don't disturb his slumber while on the Senate floor
If he gets in, he'll die first time he's bored

I am Barack
I am Oba-a-a-a-a-a-ama

I have Clinton
And Joe Biden right behind me
I am shielded with my tire gauge
I have no need for Edwards or Kucinich anymore
I'm gonna trim the Bushes out the door

I am Barack
I am Oba-a-a-a-a-a-ama

And D.C. is my claim
And we all know change is wise
Remember, if you don't vote, you can't b*tch!

It's presumptive we'll have 4 years worth of "barack" titles to pun with, might as well get the most obvious one out of the way. :) You did a good job with it.
