The Lyrics

WASHINGTON – The White House plans an inquiry into the low-flying Air Force One photo shoot that panicked New Yorkers, and President Barack Obama said Tuesday it won't happen again. Air Force officials Tuesday said the cost of three-hour trip from Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and back was $35,000 for the flight of the Boeing VC-25 presidential jet and the two accompanying F-16 fighters flown by D.C. Air National Guard pilots. Most of that amount would be for fuel. The large jet — a Boeing 747 — carried only military personnel, the White House said.

Bored at home, gave out the code
Scared New York some more
Flyby the city, Obama's jet plane
Had us thinkin' there is a new war
One big photo op that went astray
Can't believe it was Air Force One
It's Glamour Shots most expensive day
They flushed our tax money down the john

Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Picture day got carried away
Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Gave Liberty a real close shave

Flyby with jets reasons unknown
Flyby the voters who trusted
Photos today, get out of our way
Or get caught in our jet wash and be gusted
The panic had us thinking backwards
911 on 747
Must be high, fly this thing through the sky
But the shot just looks so darn swell
Against the blue sky heavens

Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Say smile and we'll fly right away
Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Obama called, please don't convey

Flyin' round made Obama frown
Said his heat's comin' down
I'm a pawn in what's goin' on
The Oval Office keeps me spinnin' around
I thought the plane was my reservation
I looked and could not find the keys
Instead the spot they were on had a note that had read
I.O.U. for a flight to the city

Obama's jet flyby stir
They carried it too far that day
Obama's jet flyby stir
It's was our pants that we had to change

Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Used New York for photo landscape
Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Quick panic then faster escape

Obama's jet flyby stir
Get those tourists out of our way
Obama's jet flyby stir
Here's the bill that taxes will pay

Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Where's my 8 by 10, just can't wait
Oh, Obama's jet flyby stir
Thirty-five thousand billed play date....

Excellent current event parody Mark, that low-flying footage was mighty scary and surely triggered a zillion bad memories for NY....well, all of us for that matter.

Good one - very topical. I can't believe that somewhere in the chain of command there wasn't a person who had the intelligence and/or balls to say "that's probably not such a good idea"
