The Lyrics

Well, I got this idea yesterday morning on the way to work and didn’t get this out in time Thursday, but you know the story. President Obama brought Professor Henry Louis Gates and Police Officer James Crowley to the White House to have a beer and talk things over. President Obama stuck his nose in where it didn’t belong when commenting that Officer Crowley “acted stupidly” in arresting Professor Gates. Pretty "stupid" on his part, just throw a little gasoline on the fire there. Well now he’s thrown some beer on the fire. Not a bad gesture, but I think Obama might have had a little scheme going on. Hmm? Get Crowley drunk and he might slip with a racial slur or two. Or they can nab him for DUI when he leaves. Oh the possibilities. I saw Biden was even there, I suppose to balance out the racial mix and give the appearance of a fair fight. Of course, the esteemed professor didn't move an inch in his indignation, when he was the one who brought the trouble on himself to begin with. Arrogance at its finest. Latest word has it that Obama will have a beer bash for Congress to get their buy-in on his health care plan. Stay tuned.
Let’s Share A Brew

What the hell, I been open my mouth
Didn’t weigh the ‘quences
I let a “stupid” come out
I brought on a howlin’ squall
Did me in
Need a token gesture, fix my sin

Come on, let’s share a brew, if you don’t mind
Don’t mean nothin’, but we’re drinkin’ brews
Let’s drink, let’s share a brew
Let’s share a brew

Now my bro, Prof. Gates is my main man
What the Copper don’t know, I have another plan
We’ll just keep drinkin’ the brews
He’ll be my friend
I’ll take the chance he slips, on his words again, amen

Come on, Blue Moon for you, Bud Light for mine
Bring another, now we’re buzzin’, whew!
Let’s drink, let’s share a brew
Let’s share a brew
Ooo, oo, oo Ooo, oo, oo yeah, or two

Come on Gates have a brew, Sam Adams Light
American, that’s a damn fine brew
Was a patriot dude
And we’ve got Joe Biden here too
We’ll share a brew

Ooo ooo, cop the bad guy
And we’ll nail him on a DUI
Ooo shared brew, took care of you
Let’s share, on health care too, a brew
Let’s share a brew
Or two, uh ooo, ooo
Or five, uh ooo, ooo
Or ten, uh ooo, ooo

5-5-5 plus bonus points for posting the first post-summit parody. This really IS a teachable moment! ;D

A teachable moment, yes... but I'm not sure I caught just what it was I was supposed to learn from it. ;) In any case, it would be "stupid" not to give you 5s!

GREAT song, blackjack! Hopefully, it is teachable. I have my own take on that coming out on Monday..555 more embarassing moments to come?

Brewing thanks for Old Man Ribber, Fiddlegirl, Mark Scotti, TJC and John Barry. Eh...who's got the next round?

What would be even funnier is if Sgt. Crowley nabbed *Gates* for DUI while leaving the White House! LOL! (yeah, I know, not his jurisdiction). There's an idea -- any takers?

I guess free beer for every American could be part of the health care plan, as it presumably would end all racial tension. A three-pack of Fives.

Very good parody, particularly the ironic use of "token."
