The Lyrics

This tribute to the U.S. president is appropriate for MLK Day, because without a successful civil rights movement and affirmative action, he could not have enjoyed the full fruits of being born into American citizenship. CHFUDNKTOS.
When Obama said he'd banish class and race,
We smiled[1] wryly in Obama's face.
Those who love Obama seek a statist place,
So we smile[1] wryly in Obama's face.

When Obama says we'll fall behind in space, [2]
We smile[1] wryly in Obama's face.
When Panetta says they'll never bomb this place, [3]
We smile[1] wryly in Panetta's face.

Were we not the supermen carryin' poor Europe's men? [4]
Then we were the supermen (super-power supermen). [5]

He thinks that this land's no good;
Would he cleave it if he could?
Though this gutsy land is good,
He would cleave it if he could.

He'd make the world to order,
Obama's worldly order.
Everyone of foreign lands
Will love Obama's stands
When he brings to the world his order.

When Bernanke says we all the world can brace, [6]
We smile[1] wryly in Bernanke's face.
When Tim Geithner said that we must bail out Chase, [7]
We smiled[1] wryly in Tim Geithner's face.

[musical interlude]

When Obama says we may not blast his race,
We smile[1] wryly in Obama's face.
When Obama says he'll win debates with grace,
Then we'll smile[1] wryly in Obama's face.
{slowing to end}

[1] Insert "the bird", "the raspberry" or "the Bronx cheer".
[2] Ended Space Shuttle, etc.
[3] DoD budget cuts as "peace dividend"
[4] WW II
[5] Cold War
[6] Federal Reserve's secret loans to European Union
[7] and most other "too big to fail" banks

Since the bank bailouts began in 2008, I'd change the "Tim Geithner" lines to:

When Jay Carney puts the Press Corps in its place,
They smile[1] wrly in Jay Carney's face.
or
When Obama said he'd close al-Gitmo base, [7]
We smiled[1] wryly in Obama's face.

[7] Guantanamo prison in Cuba

A good parody of a funny song about another dictator.

OMR: Thanks; IDK where you came from, 'cause IDK where you've been.
Patrick: Thanks; I was motivated by an old parody of TOS about GWB.

Funny spoof to a funny song
Michael - January 17, 2012 - Report this comment
Pretty good. This would be funnier if it had a more consistent point of view and was based more on the president's actual views, but it's not bad.

AFW: Thanks. TOS was really funny during WW II, I can imagine.
Michael: As Arte Johnson on Rowan & Martin's TV "Laugh-in" used to say in the role of a 1960s holdover Nazi, "Very interesting ... but not very funny."
