Original Song Title:

"Is She Is Or Is She Ain't"

Original Performer:

The Talbot Brothers of Bermuda

Parody Song Title:

"Is He Is Or Is He Ain't (Obama)"

Parody Written by:

Barry J. Mitchel

The Lyrics

Obama's religion, if any, has become a topic of public debate with the NYC mosque controversy. TOS questioned the result of the first transgenderization. Unable to find its lyrics on the 'net, I transcribed them from my wife's Paramount vinyl album ABC156 circa 1958 and include them below for your entertainment and enlightenment. The 5 brothers and a cousin were popular in Bermuda and the USA during the '50s and '60s.
--- Is She Is Or Is She Ain't ---

Now I'm trying to find that solution
About a certain person.
I'm trying to find that solution
About a certain person
Who with the modern surgery,
They changed him from he to she;
But underneath the lipstick, rouge and paint,
I wonder, is she is or is she ain't?

What gave him that inspiration and spark
To leave the country and go to Denmark?
He tried to live the life of a man;
It wasn't in accord with Nature's plan,
So he had this operation
And came back home and shocked the nation;
But underneath the lipstick, rouge and paint,
I wonder, is she is or is she ain't?

Now when he/she came back to this country,
They made her a great celebrity;
But under public sentiment,
She got movie contract and engagement.
People all came out of curiosity
To see this Man of the Century;
But underneath the lipstick, rouge and paint,
I wonder, is she is or is she ain't?

When he/she came back to this country,
They made her a great celebrity;
But under public sentiment,
She got movie contract and engagement.
People all came out of curiosity
To see this Man of the Century;
But underneath the lipstick, rouge and paint,
I asked her if she is; I know she ain't!

I asked her if she is; I know she ain't!

--- Is He Is Or Is He Ain't ---

Now I'm trying to find what religion,
Point out he's native Muslim.
I'm trying to find what religion;
Some doubt it's latent Muslim.
Soon 'twas Black Lib Theology
That changed him from M to C;
But underneath the Christian rouge and paint,
I wonder, is he is or is he ain't?

What gave him that inspiration and spark
To leave Hawaii and go to Oak Park?
He tried to live his life with a plan;
It wasn't long before he's Bill Ayers' man,
So he ran for Senate station;
His Jeremiah shocked the nation;
But underneath the Christian clues so faint,
I wonder, is he is or is he ain't?

Now when he became known in whole country,
They made him a great celebrity;
He caught the public sentiment,
And got nomination for President.
People all came out to vote for hope and change,
But now they get only hoops and chains;
But underneath the Christian ruse and taint,
I wonder which he is; why show restraint?

When he departed from this country,
He made bow to great Prince of Saudi;
But never to Brit's Queen he bent;
She got groovy DVD that he sent.
People all came out to join the Tea Party,
They see this man brought them penury;
But whether he be Christian, choose they cain't.
I'd ask him what he is; guy shoah no saint!

Why ask him what he is? I know Press faint!

Great work, BJM. I appreciate the extra effort made to post TOS. Is The One Islamic? Surely not, but I do know this...when it comes to Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity and the rest, he'd undoubtedly like to "Muzzle-'em"! ;D

"By their deeds shall ye know them." What he's doing talks so loudly I can't hear what he's saying -- or what Emanuel, Gibbs or the others are saying, either.

I don't agree with the sentiment in the lyrics, but I did think this was a clever idea, and I'd like to thank you for making me aware of TOS. I looked up the original song and found that it was written by Louis Farrakhan (!), back when he was a calypso singer. One wonders what the Louis Farrakhan of today would think of his former self....

Thanks to all v/c's. HOF: The LP's back cover credits Wolcott for the song; did he, like BHO, change his name to sound more Islamic?
Patrick - August 25, 2010 - Report this comment
Thanks for posting the original song. That makes it easier to relate. I have a Louis Farrakhan CD, under the name "The Charmer". I'll have to see if this song is on it. Frankly, I don't care what religion Obama is, or nominally proclaims himself to be. I believe the deity he really worships is himself.

Patrick: You and Hu both say that Louis Farrakhan recorded songs -- news to me. I agree that BHO self-worships. But I'll give him a break; I skipped church from 22 to 45, and didn't join one until I hit 55. He'll be out of office by that age.

Patrick: Louis Farrakhan was born Louis Eugene Wolcott: http://reaktorplayer.wordpress.com/2009/11/15/louis-farrakhan-is-she-is-or-is-she-aint/ He subsequently changed his name to Louis X after he joined the NOI. Afterwards, he became Louis Farrakhan.

Hu - Very interesting. I assume that the X was for Malcolm rather than meaning that he was Louis The Tenth! ;D

Hu: Thanks for the link, where his original name is Walcott. After examining the old LP jacket more carefully, I agree.
