The Lyrics

Compared to President Obama, P. T. Barnum was a kindergarten pageant director. Today, he presented the specifics of his jobs bill (he actually waved the document) at yet another carefully-orchestrated event in the Rose Garden. As always, he used his share of human props...this time it was teachers, policemen, construction workers, and firefighters rather than school children or doctors in white coats straight from central casting. Again, like a great entertainer, he left us wanting more. To be precise, he told us that he'd tell us exactly HOW his $400 billion plan would be financed at a later date. Of course, he is demanding its passage BEFORE we hear this incidental information. Fool America again? Yes We Can! ;D


In the Rose Garden with my props -
Pass it! Pass it!
Teachers, firemen, workers, cops -
Pass my bill today!
Like when I had doctors in white coats.
Pass it! Pass it!
The Congress better give me their votes.
Pass it right away!

Gaze upon my show.
Heed the words I say.'
My orders to the Senate and the House:
Pass my bill today!

I wave my bill and I gesticulate.
Pass it! Pass it!
Here's the specifics (just a trifle late)
I left out Monday.
Watch more spending and new programs come!
Pass it! Pass it!
Don't ask where the money will come from,
Someone else will pay!

My words for "Fair Share"?
Stick it to the "rich"!
I count "jobs saved" as new-created jobs.
Don't matter which is which!

I am slyer than an old grey fox.
Pass it! Pass it!
I've stuffed Boehner in a cheap pine box,
Burial today!
For if my bill they dare to shelve -
Pass it! Pass it!
I'll pay them back in twenty-twelve!
They will rue the day!

Rush my bill straight through!
Better let it pass!
You'd better give me everything I want
Or we will kick your *ss!



I'll give President Obama credit for one thing. All this "Pass it now", "Pass my bill now", "Pass it right away", etc. is infinitely better than all those 2010 speeches about "D" is to go forward, "R" means go backwards, the Republicans drove us into a ditch, etc.

My comment on your previous parody applies to this one. I wanted to rate it 447 (billion) but those digits summed the same as 555. ;^)
