The Lyrics

Amiright drone parodies are far superior to the remote control attack weapons. Once launched, there is no need to apply joystick control to hit the target. The drone is unmanned, but the drone parody authors always have manned up to their creations. I've stayed true to the original song's 10/10/10/8 meter at the risk of an occasional misplaced accent. Finally, no one is more unlike Phil Harris than President Obama...and that alone makes this irresistible to me. ;D

Won't you come with me in my big limo'
And I'll tell you 'bout my latest memo.
Ask me nice and I'll give you a demo
'Bout what I like about the drones.

I said Al-Qaeda had been defeated.
I knew the mission was uncompleted.
From my campaign this was all deleted.
Here's what I like about the drones.

Now a drone strike just can't be resisted.
All the targets for my kills are listed.
I can show the world that I'm two-fisted.
That's what I like about the drones.

It has more effect than naval shelling.
There's no need for capture, so stop yelling.
Best of all dead men no tales are telling.
That's what I like about the drones.

They fly like the down on all those thistles
And take out the bad guys clean as whistles.
It's the way Bill Clinton used cruise missles.
That's what I like about the drones.

'Though my backers often find this chilling
All my loyal press is out there shilling.
They will always laud what I am willing.
That's what I like about the drones.

If a citizen is who we're nailing
They have got no rights that are prevailing
Unlike those at Gitmo who we're jailing.
That's what I like about the drones.

When I use them it's completely legal.
Even Nixon had no clout so regal.
Holder's D.O.J. is my pet beagle.
Nothing I lack about the drones.

With one small step the next thing I'm trying:
To use drones for all domestic spying.
Into your lives we will soon be prying.
That' s what I'll like about the drones.

Now if you don't like this convolution
You ain't gonna get no restitution.
My plans all say scrap the Constitution.
You'll have no chance against my drones.

What good are powers if you can't abuse?
So all gun owners I'm coming for "yous"
As soon as I finish bombing Fox News.
That's what I LOVE about my drones!

One good thing about drones and drone parodies is that they're reusable. I'm sure there will be more targeted missions.

♪♫ And where are the drones?
Quick, send in the drones.
Don't bother - they're here! ♫♪

Nicely crafted, Ribber, with heaps o' hyperbolic/parabolic/? anabolic verbiage and a sniper's eye to your target!

555! Phil Harris is dead and Barack Hussein Obama is alive. ;^) But we elders will remember Phil with pleasure long after bad memories of BHO have faded, I hope.

The War on Drugs and the War on Terror are and always have been the rehearsal for the day the feds come after our guns. And now that they have drones that look like as well as hover like humming birds, no place is safe.

Preators, Reapers, and Sentinels... Oh My!!! 555!
