The Lyrics

There's a little ditty they sing in element'ry
About the president whom the left has a thing
They will take your dollars you gave them for the scholars
And place the propaganda machine in full swing
Obama! Obama! That's how it goes!
Obama! Obama! Everyone knows!
Who teaches students to stay on their toes?
Could it be Obama?

Someone drew a picture that made him look like Joker
They thought it was the work of some right-wing extreme
Surely it was racial to give him such a facial
But then they found the artist in their own regime.
Obama! Obama! That's how it goes!
Obama! Obama! Everyone knows!
Who has red lips and has white on his nose?
Could it be Obama?

There's a group called ACORN who'll teach you how to fake on
Your taxes and will help you get illegals in
He used to be their lawyer and greet you in the foyer
But now he acts as if they've committed a sin
Obama! Obama! That's how it goes!
Obama! Obama! Everyone knows!
Who was the one who helped pimps and their hos?
Could it be Obama?

Nancy D. Pelosi thought she was sitting rosy
Her party had the House and the Senate as one
So the public option she fought for its adoption
But blue dogs in the party won't let it get done
Obama! Obama! That's how it goes!
Obama! Obama! Everyone knows!
Who'll give you pain pills 'til you decompose!
Could it be Obama!

His innaurguration was hailed across the nation
They thought that disagreement was put on the shelf
But his polls are falling and isn't it appalling
That he may need a new job in 2012?
Obama! Obama! That's how it goes!
Obama! Obama! Everyone knows!
Whose popularity's taking the blows?
Could it be Obama!

Another fine addition to the Obashama genre, esp. nailing ACORN, Pelosi, and his rapidly-worsening polls. 555

Hehehe... *someone* had better be "Reviewing the Situation"-- and fast! :D

Fantastically well-written - I don't agree with some of it (especially the ACORN verse - if everyone was culpable for the wrongdoing of every organization they had once had something to do with, Obama wouldn't be the only person in trouble). And as for needing a new job in 2012 - who have the Republicans got who might conceivably give him any kind of contest?
