Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

The Obamas' meeting foreign leaders, and bringing their message of hope and change to the world, reminded me of the grand entrance of the Mikado (here Obama) and Katisha, his daughter-in-law-elect (here a reporter). The chorus may be going to a Tea Party soon. Right-click here and open the original song in a new window.
Chorus:
See Obama, see Obama
On the Ship of State be.
Miracles can happen at the
Pan-G-20.
See how tony are Michelle's bare arms!

He Obama, she Obama
On a mission stately,
Hero and a guru, some say;
Can they be now?
See how phony are Michelle's fair charms!

Obama:
From every Western man,
Obama-love I expect;
But the President of Iran --

Reporter:
You'll let the nuclear ban reject!
(For Barry he'll gun;
His goal's megaton.)
Will the IAEA* inspect?

Obama:
My manners have been declared
Impeccably circumspect;

Reporter:
But they're likely to fall, impaired,
When greeting a queen while you stay erect!
Don't -- Bow --
Just look in her eyes direct.

Chorus:
Don't -- Bow --
Two-hand shaker instead elect.

Obama:
In the Middle-East lands today,
I've studied each tribe and sect;
With speech full, I've grown to sway --

Reporter:
And kept politically correct!
As tough as a stone,
With a drill of their own,
They would Sharia Law protect!

Obama:
My nature is love and light --
Thy cheap shots I shall deflect --

Reporter:
'Tis one magnificent sight:
When greeting a Saudi prince, genuflect!
Bow -- Down --
As this Saudi prince stands erect.

Chorus:
Bow -- Down --
To that Saudi prince? We object!

By "Michelle's fair charms", I meant her social skills, not her pulchritude. I'd change that to "Barack's alarms" on climate change, the US economy, education and health care, all going from crisis to catastrophe, he said.
