The Lyrics

I wrote this off the top of my head! It just came to me...!!!
I'm mourning

I'm scoring!

Oh no you're not!

Well, progress I'm makin',
some time it has taken
Not all glam
And yet here I am
Killed Osama, I'm the Man!
Gave Wall St. and Detroit a hand
Hit Gadhafi with bombs that went BAM!!!
Recently defended that female law student that got slammed
Fought the Republicans
I'm the Man, I'm the Man, I'm the Man that's in demand!!!

(Fox News: Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Conman Sham! Conman Sham!)

With Netanyahu sat down and had a really long talk
Got Israel's back, no need for attack with their F-15s
Yes, I've made some mistakes, got some nice breaks, but I am still in command!

He's nothing more than a smiling conman!

Well, I'm doing all that I can
Second term, I can win it

Oh hell no! Not again!!!

Are you going to use "Change" as a message?

That was all bullsh-t!!!

Haven't the huge bail outs and hand outs pushed our debt to the limit?

(Fox News: Sham! Sham! Sham!...)

15 Trillion and counting as all Obama does is spend, spend, spend!
(without end)

(All Republicans do)

What do you mean "Biiiiiiiiiitch"? We don't like shams!

(Fox News: Conman sham! Pitiful sham!)

Obama (to Fox News):
Shut up!

(Fox News: Conman sham! Pitiful sham!)

Shut Up! Filthy Right-Wings!
I'll redistribute the wealth, take it all off your Rich hands!
(Socialist that I am)

We don't like scams!

Oh dear, this is too much. We've all been scammed. I hate it,
Promised "Change" sham, sham, sham, sham, sham, sham, sham, faked schemes,
sham, sham, sham, oh damn!

(Fox News: Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Conman sham! Pitiful sham!)

Shut Up!! You know I'm tough!

Well, when is this "Recovery" supposed to kick in?

Second term span, span, span, span, span, span, span, span, span, span, span,
span as planned!

Fox News (intervening):
Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham!
Conman spam! Pitiful sham!
Sham, sha-a-a-a-a-am, sham, sha-a-a-a-a-am, sham.
Conman sham! Conman sham! Conman sham! Conman sham!
Sham, sham, sham ,sham!

If Obama gets elected again we're all damned!!!

I like the idea and the OS, but this parody was a tongue-twister, so I'll refrain from voting. Still great to see Monty Python stuff here...

Fun parody.

Andria, most of the sketch is _spoken_ with the original Spam singing interjected at points. I re-assigned the four roles and followed the dialogue and singing, keeping the syllable count as close as possible. I used both sham and scam to replace Spam. Btw, I found error with the OS lyrics b/c Spam is a product and should always be capitalized, not spam as in Internet spam! It also stands for something- SPiced hAM!
