The Lyrics

he slammed the lies together
piggies now with lipstick
come up with something better
he kills a halal calf tonight
so stick around
you're gonna hear him bend the truth
all the lies abound

this barack obama, do you know him yet?
so all the truth comes out
ph-ph-ph ph phony as it gets
oh but he seems warm and wonderful
the truth though, we have never seen
he's got the muslim roots, they're in cahoots,
you know i read it in a magazine
oh yeah, ph ph ph ph phony as it gets

read this, lefties who are brainless,
you'll all be blind sided
when you find out his birth place is
kenya it's all inside and he's dragged you all along
and now he's dragged the demo party down to defeat
you'll see I'm right and he is wrong

Who's phony? The Maverick-Sidekick or the Family-Values Hypocrite of the Great White North?
