The Lyrics

This is a parody about the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. I wrote it the day after President Obama was inaugurated. Hey, it's better late than never, as I always say! Note: "Dick" refers to former Vice President Dick Cheney, "Dems" means "Democrats", "both of my votes" refers to the preliminary election in May and the primary election in November, the "House" reference refers to the House of Representatives, who are a perennial C-Span feature, and the poor grammar in spots can be excused on the grounds of accommodations for pacing.
This country is in a fix
Thanks to Georgie Bush and Dick
I know what the right will say
Higher taxes, I should pay
Liberal nation, we shall be
Oh, please, help us out, Obama

I would love it if war would end
Nuclear winter, you would prevent
I like you, and I voted for you
Oh, Obama, can't you see?
I always vote Democrat
So we get good bureaucrats
Oh, please, help us out, Obama

Prez Obama, and Joe Biden
In a blue state I'm residin'
Those two men captured my vote
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Only you will float my boat
And you got both of my votes
When you move into the White House
I'll watch C-Span with the whole House
Fix the economy, f-f-fix it right
End that war with a-all your might
Oh, please, help us out, Obama
Oh, please, Obama

Please excuse the reference to the common abbreviation for "Democrats" (Dems) that did not appear in my parody. That was meant for another parody that was sitting on my desk next to this one when I was typing it in.

All hail Barack Obama! Oh, if only Obama could read your parody! He sure would be impressed. I sure as heck hope that he would save us all! I also agree with you about Bush in your song. I also echo all the comments above! Thanks for consoling me the other day. I feel better now, thanks! :) Well, then, peace out!
