The Lyrics

If the acorn falls not far from the tree, and great oaks from little acorns grow, and a tree falls in the forest and nobody's listening -- well maybe I'm pushing these analogies too far from the OS.
An ACORN fell so suddenly;
'Twas set up often giving tips illegally.
The tipsters said, "Now don't you cry;
A fallen woman can run brothels on the sly."

As ACORN fell (and none too soon),
We saw them dissing dumb Fox News whom they'd be suin'.
They thought O loved them (he'd said he loved them);
They planned together to scheme forever.

That scheme has ended; more big gov died
The night that ACORN fell and hushed blue lips that lied.
A week after this story surfaced, the old media finally noticed when the Census Bureau disconnected and the Senate cut off funding.

On reflection, I'd change "run" to "house" in line 4 and "dumb" to "scum" (their opinion) in line 6.

Way to go, Barry! The sentiments are perfect! I haven't heard that song in more years than I care to admit. But I could just hear Nat singing this!

60 Minutes and the Justice Department were right there to expose ACORN.....NOT!!!! Great jab, BJM!

It's been so long since I heard this old song I forgot about it. Good parody.

Great use of analogies in your parody! Oh, and I get your point in your top comment as well! I echo all comments above! 5's!

Thanks, DM & OMR. TOS came to me at 5 AM. Now the House has followed the Senate; but knowing this President, I may have to change "has ended" in line 9 to "suspended".

I agree with John Barry, that ACORN's people are crazy, and with OMR that ACORN was not exposed properly. Great parody, Barry, and 5s to you.
