The Lyrics

I started writing this song on March 25, 2008. Of course, since new controversies have arisen in all three campaigns, it may seem a little dated. But it's how I saw all three candidates at that point in time. Enjoy.
GIVE IT TO ME - ELECTION EDITION

[Hillary Clinton]
I'm the type of girl that'll look you in the eye-eye
I'm the most qualified and let me tell you why-y-y-y-y
It's time for women to get out from behind the stove
I'll win even if I have to channel Karl Rove
Undocumented workers: "Voto, mi voto"
I'm strong enough to leave John McCain bankrupt, you're all talk, Barack
Democrats love my husband and my methods so notorious
I will be victor-tor-torious-rious-rious

[Chorus]
If you see us all up close, we'll be actin' real nice
But if you see us all debate, we'll be fightin' all night
We ain't the greatest selection
Give it to me give it to me give it to me
But we all want that election
Give it to me gotta get the presidency

[Barack Obama]
When Obama is on the stage everybody puts up their hands
I get a half a mil' at my speeches, you get a couple gra-a-and
Not since Super Tuesday has your campaign had the upper hand
'Cause they know i'm the one who'll answer that phone at 3 am
Ferraro says I get support just because I am black
I clawed my way to the top, you rode on your husband's ba-a-ack
All of your promises don't make up for the skills you lack
An' it's my job to tell 'em that you are nothin' but a hack

[Chorus]
If you see us all up close, we'll be actin' real nice
But if you see us all debate, we'll be fightin' all night
We ain't the greatest selection
Give it to me give it to me give it to me
But we all want that election
Give it to me gotta get the presidency

[John McCain]
Could you speak up, I can't hear you over my new Straight-Talk Express
You two fight like two siblings over which parent loves you best
Runnin' against a freshman Congressman and a President's wife
Haven't heard anything so ridiculous in my whole life
Now my friends, it doesn't matter if I'm on the left or the ri-i-ight
I'll bomb Iran just to show off our military might
My foreign policy experience is all from Vietnam
So all of you young whippersnappers, get off my White House lawn

[Chorus]
If you see us all up close, we'll be actin' real nice
But if you see us all debate, we'll be fightin' all night
We ain't the greatest selection
Give it to me give it to me give it to me
But we all want that election
Give it to me gotta get the presidency

[Breakdown]

[Chorus]
If you see us all up close, we'll be actin' real nice
But if you see us all debate, we'll be fightin' all night
We ain't the greatest selection
Give it to me give it to me give it to me
But we all want that election
Give it to me gotta get the presidency

[Chorus 2]
If you see us all up close, we'll be actin' real nice
But if you see us all debate, we'll be fightin' all night
We all know this ain't the best one
Give it to me give it to me give it to me
But we'll still run for the next one
Give it to me gotta get the presidency

Sir, this is very good politically & quite parodeLicious! But I am not familiar with the ~OS~.

It has been, and will probably continue to be, an interesting campaign. Well chronicled, Mr. Ledbetter, particularly the black/ back,/lack/hack quartet.
