The Lyrics

They paid Sarah’s buys,
Caribou Barbie’s hot!
With her pink shotgun, her moose-meat,
And her winkin’ potshots!

Both Obamas seem to gloat
‘Cuz their coats are worth less than her Vuitton--
They paid Sarah’s buys,
Caribou Barbie’s hot!

Suit up, Mrs. P.
Put it on a free new VISA;
And then charge the people
Who’d rather have had Condoleezza!

Clothes in fall, they seem to glow,
That’s a hundred fifty thousand that’s gone!
McCain’s Sarah buys,
RNC’s charging lots!

Hey, Joe the Plumber,
Isn’t it a keen idea:
You gets cuts on your taxes
To pay for a couch at Ikea--see ya!

Jokes on all the TV shows
Even hockey moms all got that it’s wrong--
They paid Sarah’s buys,
Beautiful maverick’s caught!

Late last night,
I heard Jay Leno’s slam;
He said, “Babe’s swell and sexy,
But look how it fried Old Man!”

Most of all it seems to show
That new clothes could cost a lot to this John--
The way Sarah buys,
Caribou Barbie’s shot!

They paid Sarah’s buys,
Caribou Barbie’s shot!

Excellent substitutions, Bob. Many good lines, but I liked the "idea/Ikea/see ya" verse. You might be correct that Condoleeza would be a better choice than Sarah, but either is a better choice than Senator Biden.

Thanks, John, I appreciate the feedback. However, I prefer the ticket with no ethics violations.

I would, too, Bob, except I don't think George Washington and John Adams are on the ballot this year.

But they do have one age-group peer who's running!

Thank you, Merry, and I'll try to make it to the next AmiRightFest or whatever you call it.
