The Lyrics

Hey libs, their excuse is clever
Economy is tankin’
Use this crisis as a lever
They’ll get their programs passed, and spread
the wealth around
You’re gonna hear fear-mongering news
Propaganda sound

Say, hope and change, have you seen them yet?
Or do you regret — Buh-Buh-Buh-Buh-Buh-Buh-Barry and the debts
Oh, he’s revered and he’s resourceful
Oh, Barry, just print more green
He will redistribute that fiscal loot
And on our children he will put a lien, oh-oh
Buh-Buh-Buh-Barry and the debts

Hey libs, borrow from the future
Maybe score some points
With the looter and the moocher
We shall survive, the question is for how long?
When we find ol’ Atlas shrugging at last,
We’ll know who’s right and who’s wrong

What'sa matta--Barack ain't cleanin' up George's mess fast enough for ya? That said, this isn't such a bad parody! Made me laugh a couple of times! I like it when you rightists can be clever in your criticism and not just mean. A little rough on the pacing here and there. 4-4-4.

P.S. What's wrong with spreading the wealth around after it's been hoarded for so long? Or do you like the idea of people working long and hard with little reward?

I like your reference to "Atlas Shrugged". The movie will never be made, but we can watch the story unfold every evening on the news. When John Galt was ordered to save the régime from its own folly, he told the politicos the only way out was "Get the hell out of my way". The American people hold the key to the solution. We've just got to get 535 hunks of deadwood out of our way.

Hey, who said I was a righty? Just saw a good opportunity for a parody. And I'm pretty sure my syllable count matches the original. But thanks nonetheless!

Melanie Lee - what's wrong with spreading the wealth a little bit? i like the idea if it's just your wealth. do you contribute all the time to charities since you like the idea so much? a better question is what's wrong with making wise decisions and getting a better job, education, or being content with your choices and decisions, so you dont need to TAKE OTHER PERSONS WEALTH ! this isnt a republican or democrat thing, it is " i want what you got, i'll vote for someone who'll take it and give it to me". a bad out look on life reguardless of who you vote for. would you teach your kids that they should expect government to take from achievers and give it to them? hmmm, i though so. . .
