The Lyrics

This Christmas, you pace-o-maniacs get an extra syllable in the first line.
Barack-in’ around the Christmas tree
At their Christmas party bash;
Stockings are stuffed as you can see
Full of surplus campaign cash!

Barack-in’ around the Christmas tree
The recession’s in full swing;
Bailin’ out Wall Street companies
Can you hear “ka-ching, ka-ching”?

We will get a Presidential deal in
The new year;
Seven, eight, nine hundred billion, give
Or take a few’s a trillion!

Barack-in’ around the Christmas tree
Get the neocons moved out;
Bushies are glum as they can be
‘Cuz they kinda lost their clout!

Those two little girls will have some questions
For their dad:
Through and done with John McCain, he
Decked the halls with balls of Cheney!

Barack-in’ around the Christmas tree
With Obamalot’s new man;
Changes have come to old D.C.
Everybody, “Yes, We Can!!!!”

Loved it. The "decked the halls" and "presidential deal-in" lines were especially creative. 5-5-5

I think there's going to be a reality check, or as someone (Leno?) said, "Obama has changed his slogan from "Yes, we can" to "Maybe we can" :) I wish him luck... Clever twist and funny spoof. 5s.

Ones-person: I didn't vote for Obama, but that doesn't alter the fact that it's a, um, "Clever twist and funny spoof." Get past your own politics and appreciate good writing and humor when you see it.

You can sneak around the pacing issue by an elision of the first syllable, as was done here: http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/natkingcole118.shtml

What TT said. Plus, I like the way you spoof the cavalier way all politicians throw $s around like it way play money.

The title switch was on par with Bob Rivers. 545

BTW, any chance of you writing the parody "Barack-in' In The Free World" using Neil Young's OS, Bob?
Bob Gomez - December 19, 2008 - Report this comment
Maybe. I'll have to wait until there is actually an Obama administration ("Obamanation" as some would have it). Thanks for noticing.

NorCAL culture dictates the accepted words are H O L I D A Y s - - W I S H E S -- B E L I E V E -- M A G I C . . . NOT " Christmas or Hannukah" ! Never, ever say the 'names' the reasons for this seasonal celebration, except is you say it in French, ~Joyeux Noel~ ? ?
