Parody Song Title:

"Where's All The Change?"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

It's not really funny. But I had to write something "political" -ish for the Decathlon.

And basically I sometimes think that the people who complain the most...on both sides of many issues...are the ones who need to change the most.

Also...I know that Montgomery Gentry released the OS, too...but Kenny Chesney did it first...and I like his cut (and his butt!) better...so here's a link to his version:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqnHCVAPea8
“I don’t know why I read the paper
It JUST makes me groan
With a-
-nother Obama caper
Can’t take the place the COUN-try is in.”

“Economy is in the crapper
All my bills’ll have to wait
After years of George’s crap
It’s his fault that life’s turned out this way"

"So I wanna fight
And I’ll take you ON, that’s right, just tell me where
Throw blame fast as I can
As long as “I’m right,” who cares?"

“Dems get it wrong!
They can’t behave
This slip’ry slope
Won’t bring us Change!”

“The G-O-P’s
Truly to blame
Their residue
Slows down our Change!”

"Got no cash, and I drive a clunker
I’m livin’ WELL beyond my means
I’m parched, and yet the rich get drunker
At least THAT’s how it seems"

"You’re busy pointing fingers
Y’can’t hear above your shout
There’s a
A better life, a second chance
But everyone should settle down
To figure it all out!"

“Obama’s wrong
He will not save
He’s such a dope
Where’s all his Change?”

“It’s Bush’s fault
His tiny brain
Got things this way
Takes time for Change!”

“Man, I hate Sarah Palin!”
“Biden is a blight!”

(You want a change?)

Don’t wait too long
There’s time to save
Look at yourself
And make a Change!

Do something new
‘Stead of complain
You think life sucks?
Well, make a Change!

Yeah…

Just make a Change!

I think your opening comment about Kenny Chesney's cutt (and butt) is funnier than the parody but it was still a very important message, and it's refreshing to see something as serious as this come from our silly little elf princess.

I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't expecting the one...and probably plenty more. Which is fine. I'd have appreciated a comment, with the vote, though...because a 1-1-1 with no comment is totally pointless. Just so you know.

Matty...thanks a bunch. I had to throw a smile-worthy comment in there...I knew the parody wouldn't garner laughs. =)

Funny you should mention about the economy/recession, Arwen! I just posted a parody that is related to this economy today! It's titled "Financial Hell" and it tells all about the economy going from bad to worse, just like in your parody! But I loved the way you added a positive thought to the end to make a change. People ought to invent, or gather up ideas to save this economy. I always thought that once Obama's president, that everything would be fine, but instead it got worse, especially with Obama preoccupied with health care plans and such. Very well written parody and you summed it up very well. I'll also give 5's to outdo the unnecessary 1's.

Glad to see you spreadin' the blame around..thank you for a nonpartisan view..
Ash - November 23, 2009 - Report this comment
It's nice to hear someone actually be reasonable about things, and aknowledge that there's blame enough for everyone. This is awesome, darling girl. Though I think most of the blame should probably go to the person that gave all ones and no comment.

. . . . " It took 16 sixteen years to get where we're at, one Pres Repub, the other Democrat . . . St Peter don't you scold me, ' cause I won't show: the Change in . . .. PS: I do agree LadyArwen about Kenny's cute butt !

HECK YEAH! We need change, not just promise of change. 555 all the way!
Fiddlegirl - November 23, 2009 - Report this comment
What? You mean it's possible to do something for oneself, instead of waiting around for the government to do it? What a novel concept! ;) Peace- FG

Ditto, Fiddlegirl. Stop dissing the president - he's just someone who was elected to preside over the country. He,s not supposed to be the second coming.

For once, a nonpartisan political parody! Quite a "change" from the neocon garbage that is seen here all too often. Great job as usually seen from this author, I echo all comments above, and Mr. President, if you're here, I need change... for a $20 bill.

Great parody, I think it reflects how most of the *regular folks* feel about it. And it doesn't have to always be funny to be good. Excellent work. 555

Rob, please read this:

Arwen, I dktos, but this looks really well done. It's funny, those that tend to stay away from politics often make the better parodies of the sub genre.

Christie...thanks a bunch!

AFW...I'm nothing, if not good at spreading blame around. It's the American way. ; ) Thanks!

Ash...who am I to disagree with you? =) Thanks!

MsNorCalForge...I'm mostly happy that you agree about Kenny's butt. I mean...that, really, is the most important issue here. ; )

DJ...thanks. I'm sorry that you didn't find it funny...like I said...it wasn't meant to be.

Fiddlegirl...are you really Tommy Turtle? Like...really? Yes or no...thanks!

2Eagle...I agree with that wholeheartedly. And thanks!

Andria...hee hee. When I chose this song...for the contest...I almost went with your interpretation of needing some change. =) Great minds, I guess...

blackjack21...=) Thanks very much!

rob...did someone seriously say it WAS your fault that he lied and continues to do so? Wow...

Red Ant...thanks! =)

he don't love you and don't even like you. your a fake. just edit this like you edit every thing else.
Arwen - November 29, 2009 - Report this comment
Um...I edit things for a living...it's what I do.

Also...I'm glad to hear that "he don't love" me. AND that "he don't even like" me. I hate it when unknown people have affections for me that I can't return...since I don't know who they are.

And...yes, I am a fake. I'll admit it. I'm a fake elf. In real life, I'm a human. Stop the presses.
DJ Blaze - November 29, 2009 - Report this comment
Who was Epsilon Virginis talking about? Who is this "he"? This is weird.
Arwen - November 29, 2009 - Report this comment
I'm pretty sure it's Mr. Pacholek. ; )

Totally kidding...as Mr. Pacholek loves me. Hee hee. Every once in a while I get really random comments (and I'm sure others do, too) that make zero sense. This is one of those instances. I have no idea who "he" is...but apparently he isn't too fond of me. ; )

(Dec 3) Now that I've googled what 'non-partisan' means, I think I understand this one just a little bit more. I still don't get half the political references, but that's my bad, not yours. I think it's safer for me to echo what everyone else said, because they know what it's about! And I'll throw in a 555 for good measure.
