The Lyrics

The OS: and, based upon "There's a Tavern in the Town". I'm not the only one to satirize this song with this title on the Internet, but I think I'm the first to do it here!
It’s time for Obamaniacs!
We have won the White House back!
We’re backers of Barack
From wrong side of the tracks.
We’re Obamaniacs!

We’ve had it up to here with Bush and all his rightist stuff!
(And) we like John McCain, but, well, he’s just not left enough!
We can’t stand Sarah Palin; she really churns our guts!
We’ve plowed ahead; no more whitebread;
We voted for a mutt!

We’re Obamaniacs!
He’s got brains and charm and tact!
He will make the rich pay tax!
He’s a hero to the blacks!
We’re Obamaniacs!

Joe Biden is Vice-President;
He has a risky tongue.
Emanuel is Chief-of-Staff;
Don’t cross him, or you’re stung!
’Bama’s hiring e’vr’one
Bill Clinton ever brung.
They’ll memorize each song reprise
Obama Girl has sung!

We’re Obamaniacs!
We wear slogans on our backs!
Get ready, Potomac,
For the “Change We Need” attack!

We’re Obamani—
Liberal and brainy—
We hate Dick Cheney!—
Give Bush the sack!

We've had it up to here with Bush and his incompetence, but can you make that rhyme?

Fun to read, fun to sing ... liked the allusion to B. O.'s own self-description ("....mutt")

Pretty good stuff, Melanie, but your "He will make the rich pay tax" line seems a bit confused. The nation's top 5% of income earners earn 33% of the nation's income and they are already paying 57% of the nation's income taxes. How much more do Obamaniacs want them to pay?
