The Lyrics

When Barack Obama started responding to some criticism about the content (or alleged lack thereof) of his speeches, he responded by quoting the Declaration, the "Dream" speech of Dr. King, and a few other things, and called it "just words", with sarcasm directed at his critics. As it turns out, Mass. governor Deval Patrick had made most of the same quotes, with the same phrase "just words". This minor kerfluffle caused me to remember another set of "Words".
Smile that charismatic smile
And say goodbye to Hillary
It seems that she is going down
Barack with be the nominee
This land has had no glory
In all his wife's life story, that's her claim
But now, there's finally come that time,
And head-to-head with John [pause] McCain

Talk in plagiarizing words
The words that gov'nor Patrick used
So please forgive me for a while
'Cause I might be a bit confused
Did he, Obama, even write a single word he'll say?
It's all just words, and with some words he'll try
To make you vote his way

Da da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da,
Da da da da da da da da da

Did he, Obama, even write a single word he'll say?
It's all just words, and with some words he'll try
To make you vote his way
It's all just words, and with some words he'll try
To make you vote his way
It's all just words, and with some words he'll try
To make you vote his way
For you youngsters who don't remember TOS (or listened to the Brothers Gibb only after they became the Brothers Disco), here's a video. This version has a shortened ending.

Not a bad parody, but if you want words, here they are: McCain's in bed with a lobbyist! And if it's only figuratively, that's bad enough! Time to change Washington!

I agree that this is a "minor kerfluffle," but it is ironic that Senator Obama chooses to rely on plagiarism when making the point about the importance of words.
