The Lyrics

An epic work in 2 parts that mandatorily requires Youtube guidance. Part 1:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ukbu9dmmzJg. Part 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3W3T2aZnR0. A friendly warning to folks unfamiliar with this original song--although there are no dirty words that can be discerned in this piece of music, it could be rather alarming to Republicans and small children.
Help I’m Barack…help I’m Barack…(continuously…)

choque y temor…permanezca el curso..armas de la destrucción total…usted está con nosotros o contra nosotros… (etc. Spanish translation of George W. Bush speeches to the media)…
…do you know where you’re going?...do you know where you’re going

uh oh—ah!—Lay offs—charge offs—take off--Nada!...

ha ha ha ha hah hah ha ha ha hah hah ha ah h…

WOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Help I’m Barack…help I’m Barack…
(Somebody!... Please!...Vote!...Me!...Change!...Now!...Change!...)

I could give anything to be like Barack!...
He really got things rolling at the ’04 Convention!...
(he’s a nice man, he’s a nice man, he’s a nice man…)
And despite that he’s not very well practiced, you know…
But he seems to have passed the charisma test..
He’s not that big on the trust and the world power leadership like Russia and France, right?
Help I’m Barack! Pull from Iraq!...Pull from Iraq!...
(Whoaaaa! Whoaaa!...)
It’s a long way to the top…especially if you are just a junior Senator…
Really wonder whether or not he might screw it up, you know?…
(he’s a nice man, he’s a nice man, he’s a nice man…)
Often wonder whether he’s really got the guts or fakes it…
You know, with propriety, because…
You know, it’s big change when you’re elected…
(hey let’s go, hey let’s go, hey let’s go, …)
So he got a bunch of pundits together to weigh in…
And he got this satellite feed back that went.---

(the voices of Ariana Huffington, John McLaughlin, Eleanor Clift, Pat Buchanan, Stephen Colbert, Sean Hannity, Bill Maher, Al Franken, George Stephanapoulous, Bill O’Reilly and many more in an orgiaistic chorus of political talk, gibberish and moans…)


II.
(delegates of the 2008 DNC Convention sing:)

It could happen here
It could happen here
In this election year
Neocons, quake with, fear!
A brother President, now, maybe
Jesse and Al tried a couple of times (hmmmm…)
But now it’s getting so
That it could happen here…
O’Reilly, it’s great portent that he could be (wa wa wa wa)
The next President here

Whoooo could imagine---that this would break out… all the…polling stasis?
(Stasis, stasis, dododododo, fractious, fractious, dododododo)
Whooooo could imagine how things would turn out in Minnesota?
(mimimimi with Jesse Ventura, with Jesse Ventura, with Jesse Ventura?)
Oooh, what a crash in!...

(free jazz interlude while the delegation breaks for lunch/schmoozing/private debauchery…)

Can you imagine…
The riots break out in Washington D.C.?
(Hayseeds we see, crazy to see, hayseeds we see, crazy to see)
(ladiladiladada)
It could happen here! (lalalalalala)…
November is near, November is near
Keep Obama safe because it could happen here
Big change a plus
It could happen here
It’s MLK’s dream and it might happen here
Wo, Wo, KKK full of fear
George F Will say it can’t
But it could happen here
(hop hop hop hop to the top)
Drastic pokes to go
In election year
Pres Obama (go go go)
With Michelle Baby (wo! Wo! Wo!)
Make Mcain look like a sinner, and he’ll make it
(pop pop pop) (wo, wo, wo!) (hohohohoh)
Oh, he’ll be a big campaigner and he’ll stir it up!
Shake it up!
Joe, it just might happen here
(ho ho ho ho ho ho ho…)
Rush Limbaugh just might have few concerns…
(whispered:Will he bring the troops home safe and improve our schools?)

New Pres-ident, woo woo
Call up Desmond Tutu
Long as there’s no booboo
Everything will be cool
What ‘s he going to do
What’s he going to do
Besides just look cool?
Will he scrape the doo-doo
Will he scrape the doo-doo
Out our nation’s pool?
(ga aga ga gaga ga)

Stir it up, ‘cause it could happen here (dum de dum de dum de dum)
Gore thought that it couldn’t happen here (wo Barack Obama wow, wo Barack Obama wow, wo Barack Obama wow)
Ralph Nader says he was mistaken here, but…(green-o, green-o, green-o…)

Woozy?
(Yes! Yes! Yes! I really feel that! Yes!
In D.C.man, he could fake that!
He’s the real deal man!
He can easily fake it!
Fake it…)

Hillary?
You just came to town, and uh,
And were just wondering, if you’d like to be the next vice president…

(Hilary:) NO COMMENT!
(hmmmmmmm….Pop open a beerrrrrrrrrrr……)

Pretty good political parody here Aggy. I particularly am not a fan of them, but this one was pretty fun.

My brother Ken used to play the OS all the time. As for your parody, I'm exhausted just listening to it, it goes so fast, but the idea is so brilliant and what I caught was so hilarious...555 miles per hour!

Based on read only this had some ad lib weirdness to me, loved the "A brother President" line, puts all kinds of parody ideas into my head, not to mention that we'll probably see some parody movies along those lines in the next four years should he win.
