The Lyrics

Born in Honolulu, father African black
Mother came from Kansas, she was white and lay back
Studied at Columbia and Harvard Law School
Organized communities with civil rights rule
Won the senate race for Illinois in "O Four"
A pillar of the people on the senate floor..

This Senator from Illinois is runnin' for Prez
He's even more articulate than Joe Biden sez
Walks and talks for hours at each rally that floats
Messages make sense, don't waste much time readin' notes
Solid are supporters, to his words they are glued
For Barack Obama, everyone's in the mood..

All the craze,
Obamarama
Ballots blaze,
Obamarama
Votes he sways,
Obamarama
Erupted out in Iowa, and the lava flows on..

Towns and plains,
Obamarama
Calls for change,
Obamarama
Shows good range,
And has the drama
Wants the foreign job loss and the lobbyists gone..

Won the senate race for Illinois in "O Four"
A pillar of the people on the senate floor..

Solid are supporters, to his words they are glued
For Barack Obama, everyone's in the mood..

Tagged a real world changer, a bright star on the scene
Named most influential once, in Time magazine
Some say a comparison could be JFK
Passion and charisma, knows the right words to say
Dynamite debater, questions, will not elude
He's for the common people of the magnitude..

Claims cards is a hobby, he's a real Poker whiz
Also, cooks good chili, says you ought'a taste his
Gets the go from Oprah, and from Ted Kennedy
Cool and casual manner, as relaxed as can be
Two books are best sellers, on the list each appears
Admits he tried some pot and cocaine in teen years..

Win's the word,
Obamarama
Crowds are stirred,
Obamarama
Loud it's heard,
Obamarama
A term for his campaigning
Is Obamarama..

A term for his campaigning
Is Obamarama..

Appropriate for Obama who has admitted to MOOD altering drug usage. Fine parody AFW. This got me in the mood for some Glen Miller - I listened to a Youtube version but it was all instrumental but then I found the lyrics to the song from a Google search. Don't think I have ever heard it sung. For a moment there I thought maybe you did a parody that was strictly instrumental. I did that once - it is unbelievabily hard to do when you are used to mimicing something that is already there. If you want to take a peak at my instrumental parody it is here:

Obamarama. . .just seems like a perfect sub, I haven't been sold yet on Obama, but it's becoming evidently clear it will be Obama VS McCain. . .oy

Very well constructed, but I don't see the puns or other humor that normally populates your parodies.
