The Lyrics

Played their first concert April eighteen
Critics said kinda' rough and green
Then gave another on June 3rd, in better tune..
Tones poured out 'a their golden throats
Notes to please the people and to win more votes
With ammunition for the late night show hosts to lampoon

Obama Sang Bass,
Hill'ry sang tenor,
Dennis and Joe Biden just joined right in there
As the Democratic Choir toured the land
John and Bill and Mike added harmony
Chris Dodd doowopped rhythmic'lly
If he shows up, Al Gore plays spoons, expertly..
But, we all know, they shall break up,
By and by, Lord, by and by..

Obama Sang Bass,
Hill'ry sang tenor,
Dennis and Joe Biden just joined right in there,
Singin' high, Lord, singin' high

They did their best to make songs work
Tryin' not to sound like a jerk
Beltin' out that platform music with a smile
Each candidate crooned not too long
Ev'rybody had time for a song
A couple choruses in a showcase, as they flashed their style..

Obama Sang Bass,
Hill'ry sang tenor,
Dennis and Joe Biden kept jumpin' right in there,
And the Democratic choir toured the land
John and Bill and Mike added harmony
Chris Dodd doowopped rhythmic'lly
If he shows up, Al Gore plays spoons, expertly
Such a nice group, but, they'll break up,
By and by, Lord, by and by..

Obama Sang Bass
Hill'ry sang tenor
Dennis and Joe Biden just joined right in there..
Singin' high, Lord, singin' high
Singin' high, Lord, singin' high

You know, maybe we could get all the presidential candidates (Republican, Democrat or whatever) to form a band called The Presidential Candidates Disco Band.
