The Lyrics

I wrote two parodies on Tuesday, one for each candidate. Yesterday I submitted the victor's parody, but I liked how the other one came out. For starters, I intended for it to be funny while the Obama parody was more serious. So here it is...let's BRIEFLY visit an alternative universe where McCain is victorious. And remember...IT'S ONLY A PARODY! OBAMA REALLY WON!!!
John McCain,
You know you blew my brain
By winning yesterday
When you chose Palin
I thought you were failin'
Oh how did you know
How this vote would go?

While she attacked Obama's ties
We stared at Sarah's high-heeled thighs
Supreme court you'll fill with your guys
And I'm quaking with fear
Becuase in two months you'll have The Football
And you can't wait to shout out "all clear!"

Little Plumber Joe he was a campaign bonus
And you know he'd thrown us a curve
He'd pay too much tax on all the profits he'd make
But he's a fake, don't you see?

And VP Sarah Palin
Believes in Armageddin'

John McCain
Have we all gone insane?
You have made history
We'll stay in Iraq
And you'll lower the tax
Although not for me
I make 40 G

Remember Johnny
We're not in Vietnam-y
Been years since we've had Commies
Right wing in the White House
And Sarah P wants to ban some readin'...
I hope you'll stay healthy, somehow!

SO glad this recounts just a funny dream and not a nightmare. 555 for the parody on its own merits, but worth that, too, just for the Tom Lehrer OS base. Yeah, Tom! Yeah, Mason! :-)
