The Lyrics

The Tea Parties and Town Halls may have influenced Congress, but not our President, who cannibalized prior speeches on 9/9. This sad song (including the forgotten stanza in a comment) expresses to Congress his stubborness now and his remorse yet to come when the vote fails.
Confess, you hoped to change my plan.
You should have realized I'd be the same old ham.
I overlooked protests completely,
And will the big health care bill ram.

At core, I knew where I was at;
I found old speeches on the shelf and they fell flat.
I tried to bowl a strike, but when I rolled pair,
All that I could get was a spare.#

My feet were jacked up from the ground
As cost of health plan unwound.

My talking points in laminate*
You'll see as I do once more try to end debate.
When pressed, I all Rights whack, bite into their shell,
Giving them my personal hell.

I'm neat, half-black and have the sound,
Yet lost the one-world high ground.
# better than his actual gutterballs * passed out to Congress in lieu of customary speech text

I saw a little of Obama's speech the night before about changing health care plans, especially planning to provide small businesses tax credits and affordable options for covering employees. Great take on writing from Obama's POV! Here's some health coverage of $555!

Great parody and I'm not surprised you knew the original song. ;D Old Man Ribber salutes his elders.

CMM: You could parody "Promises, Promises!" about his speeches; I don't buy any. Thanks, I'll need your "affordability credit" and more. OMR: The OS that I heard years ago on a vinyl LP has had many troubadors, so I Wiki'd it; you retain seniority. Gigi: Thanks, so was "Oklahoma".
