Song Parodies -> "Barack Obama Funny Name"

Original Song Title:

"Barack Obama Irish Song"

Original Performer:

Hardy Drew & The Nancy Boys

Parody Song Title:

"Barack Obama Funny Name"

Parody Written by:

Steve Kalafut

The Lyrics

Based on this OS, and then-Senator Obama's warning that Senator McCain's campaign would say that "he' got a funny name". As far as I know, no McCain campaigners ever said such a thing. On the other hand, I can relate somewhat to that "funny name" stuff.
Apollo, Athena, Commander Adama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

You don’t believe me, please don’t get mad
But Barack is Kenyan, because of his dad
He’s already known for rhetorical skills
Don’t look like those old men, on our dollar bills

Hussein, Hussein, bin Laden Osama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

He’s as funny as haggis, and mulligan stew
Chicken curry, polenta, arugula, too
He’s in the White House, that’s not a gaffe
We could say Barack had the last laugh

Hussein, Hussein, bin Laden Osama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

There’s Kerry, Dukakis, Kennedy, too
Let’s hear it for Barack from Honolulu
From the broad Serengetti, to Kilimanjaro
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

Apollo, Athena, Commander Adama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama
From the Zanzibar isle, to the wild Masai Mara
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

A town in Japan that shares Barry’s name
And in this brief moment, they’ll share in his fame
They’re walking the stairway to climb Fujiyama
And cheering for president Barack Obama

Apollo, Athena, Commander Adama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

The hockey mom’s gone, but Palin’s her name
One of Monty Python, his last name’s the same
In Bharat they have both Krishna and Rama
But nobody sounds quite like Barack Obama

Hussein, Hussein, bin Laden Osama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama

If you’re a Wasp, and live on Cape Cod
You’ll think that Barack might sound a bit odd
How, may I ask, should this be put?
His name is stranger than "Steve Kalafut"

Apollo, Athena, Commander Adama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama [repeat]

Hussein, Hussein, bin Laden Osama
There’s no name as funny as Barack Obama [repeat]
Yes, there is a town in Japan named Obama. Bharat is a country that is known to the outside world as India.

First of all, thanks for turning me on to a terrific OS (which is based on Sweet Betsy from Pike, unless there's another folk song that precedes that!). Second, your parody was very easy to follow for a song I didn't know before tonight. 5-5-5! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_Betsy_from_Pike
