The Lyrics

In order to get this you need to know the lyrics to the OS -- "Oye como va, mi ritmo .. Bueno pa' gosar, Mulatta. (Repeat)". And the translation -- Listen to how it goes, (also, "Hey, how's it going") my rhythms. Good for (or made for) you to enjoy, mulatto woman. in this case, Mulatta refers to an attractive Hispanic Creole woman
Barry como va ... el Gitmo
Cuando lo cerrar .. mentiras
Barry adonde va .. mi empleo
Tenemos cambiar .. Malvado

(Repita uan vez mas)

Abadi, abadi, abadi .... Es todo, amigos

Again, in order to earn a full Malcom, I suppose I should probably do another Santana song

You've got to stop the Hope and Change ... Barry
Before I stop voting for you
Just stop the Change ... Barry
Cause not a word that you've said is true
You've got me scrimping and scraping
All over town
You've got me begging and pleading
And standing around
This can't go on
Lord knows we need a change .... Barry .... Barry

When I come home ... Barry
My outlook's dark and job leads are cold
You hang around ... Barry
With Ayres abd Dohrn and a who know who
I'm getting tired of dithering
And golfing around
We'll find somebody who won't make
Me feel like a clown
This can't go on

When I come home ... Barry
My outlook's dark and job leads are cold
You hang around ... Barry
With Ayres and Dohrn and a who know who
I'm getting tired of preening and bowing around
We'll find somebody who make
Us look like a clown
This won't go on ... (No! No! No!)

Translation to parody -- Barry, how is Gitmo coming along; When do you close it, you lie ... Barry, where did my job go: We have to make a change, Wrongdoer

Two parodies for the price of one. We need discounts like this in these hard times.

According to the submission guidelines, Patrick, the first song is too short to be accepted, which is why I put down some more lines. It's why I make the joke about earning a full Malcolm

Don't forget the OS was first done by Tito Puente.

You are correct, Sir .. and Tito Puente was Puerto Rican, where there are more than a few Mulattas to flirt with. Basically, I think the OS is about inducing an attractive Creole woman to get up and dance

This was very clever - even without the second half. :)
