The Lyrics

When the US President during a recent interview gave a housefly the same treatment he gives anyone who harrasses him, I was inspired to write this spoof from my memory of the OS.
When he was young, infused with hate
By masters who would white men berate.
In class, he taught all to bigots fry,
And crush their way of new-told lie.

Was Barack born in Hawaii?
Was Barack born in Hawaii?
Was Barack born in Hawaii?
Disaster dawned that day.

Michelle beside him stood, and very soon
They made sweet music to common tune.
Her tony being was not shy
When smitten by this do-tell guy.

Gimme ACORN and all will share.
Gimme ACORN and all will share.
Gimme ACORN and all will share.
Alinski's shown the way.

So toned, he run, he jump, he pitch;
He grow to master bait and switch.
On change, delight them, con them, try
To level make each share of pie.

Will we all mourn ObamaCare?
Will we all mourn ObamaCare?
Will we all mourn ObamaCare?
It's fast upon us. Pray!

They made him wonderful, givin' free.
His epitaph I'm sure will be:
Beneath this jock, coerced to buy
Dictum that we knew failed. Sigh.

Was Barack worn and dyed his hair?
Was Barack worn and dyed his hair?
Was Barack worn and dyed his hair?
Why cast eight years away?

Oops! I meant "Our epitaph" (of the freedom-loving USA as we knew it).

At line 17, change "jump" to "stump". At line 16, I misspelled Alinsky (Saul, author of "Rules for Radicals") in pre-dawn rush to beat the weekend. I've thought since of various better last lines, from the simply silly "Try plastered-on toupee" to the seriously scary "Might last beyond his stay".

Scotti Mark scored three fives, so rare; Scotti Mark roared, implied he'd care; Scotti Mark, more should I declare? My last is done this day......with three changes: "pastor".for "masters" in line 2, "honed" for "toned" in line 17, and "excite" for "delight" in line 19.

Replace line 25 with "He made grim blunder, a smokin' spree", an ironic double-entendre contrasting his unshaken habit with his rapid pace of "change" in government.
