The Lyrics

(Doon doon doon, doodle doodle)
(Doon doon doon, doodle doodle ..)

A winner's day
On a deep and dark November
I am The Won
Gazing from my columns
To the -bots below
With a freshly fallen
Bootlick press in tow
I am Barrack!
I am OBA-AA-A-A-MA!

I build walls
Of fictions deep and might
That Rush will not penetratre
I have no love of country
My country gives me shame
It's patriots and it's Christians I disdain
I am Barrack!
I am OBAA-AA-A-A-MA!

Don't say Bill Ayers
Yes, I've heard the name before
It is shielded in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber
Of scandals that I hide
If I never ran
I never would have lied
I am Barrack!
I am OBAA-AA-A-A-MA!

I have my looks
And my prompter to protect me
I am shielded by the media
Golfing with the stars
Unleashing pervert czars
I change the world
But noone changes me
I am Barrack!
I am OBAA-AA-A-A-MA!

And Barrack feels no shame
And Obama mostly lies

(Doon doon doon, doodle doodle)
(Doon doon doon doodle doodle)

A classic song perfectly rerendered. The original is one of my favorites. You have hung some great lyrics on it. Captures that spirit of arrogance that took an unknown to the highest office in the land, from which he could wreak havoc on the world.

And it's funny, too!

Congratulations on being at least the fifth person to think up this as a title sub.. (and the only one to misspell his name). Not particularly well done or original.

The only problem with this O/S is it's not long enough. You would have to write a Rock Parody Opera using Pink Floyds "The Wall" to catalogue all the corruption, demagoguery, and policy failures this socialist/Marxist regime has wrought on the country. But this is pretty spot on and funny. FYI, in 50 states it's spelled Barack. In the other 7 states, (oh wait, 6 states because Hawaii is part of Asia) it is in fact spelled Barrack.

Where to begin? Anybody who thinks the press is licking Obama's boots is an idiot. They haven't given him a fair shake at all. Obama has no love of country? I guess that's why HE KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN. Did Bush love this country that much? Like hell he did. He disdained Christians? I guess that's why he celebrates Christmas and Easter and actually shows up at church unlike that old buzzard Ronald Reagan. (And you dopes think WE make OUR Presidents "messiahs"?) Bill Ayers? Never killed anybody, unlike Oliver North and G. Gordon Liddy. "Pervert czars"? Who would that be, Mark Sanford? And as for the teleprompter, I can't believe I have to say this again... EVERY President since Nixon has used it, including Reagan. Nixon didn't -- you want a President like HIM? Yeah, you're stupid enough to want one like him. Michele Bachmann read note cards to drop out of the race today, and she STILL stumbled over her delusional words. She should've used a teleprompter. You get all one-votes, and you came by them the old-fashioned way: You EARNED it.

I'm afraid I have no time for, nor confidence in anyone who describes the current US administration as "socialist/Marxist" - by doing so they are showing they do not have a clue what such terms actually mean.

And I probably won't have much time for your brand of political parody, either, Phil. But one thing I won't be doing is trying to downgrade a song with a liberal bent and calling the parodist names. BTW, how did that attempt to run down my rating work out for you?

Boy, the liberal buffoonery has sunk to a new low here. Where to begin? Anybody who says the press isn't kissing Obamas @$$ is a lying, worthless p.o.s.! Did the press investigate the myriad appointments of the Czars and their ideology? Hell no. It took Glen Beck to expose the socialist veiws of these un-American a-holes. Remember Van Jones? He's gone. His own words were exposed on Fox News (the only news outlet investigating the motherf***ing terrorists Obama hangs out/shares views with). The Femi-Nazi Obama appointed to the Supreme Court is on record-ON RECORD-that she would ban books. Burn baby burn! The other Femi-Nazi he appointed twittered giddily to friends when Obamacare was passed. Guess which way she'll vote on the enforced enrollment option. Just yesterday Obama bypassed congress to appoint people to the new labor board.Where do you get this information? The handfull of conservative news outlets and talk show host. The Dominant Liberal Elite Mass Media is on board with Democrats. Oh by the way, OBAMA DID NOT KILL OSAMA BIN LADEN, SEAL TEAM 6 DID! Wouldn't matter who's President. 10 years of intelligence gathering came to fruition. Any leader would have said "GO". The funeral at sea sure seems fishy, where are all the conspiracy theorists now? Kissing Obamas @$$. Anybody who doesn't see Obama's anti-capitalist, anti-free market bent is basically on board with America embracing Euro-socialism. Look how great it's working over there.

P, A & X: You're quoting Glen Beck as a source? Just when I thought your credibility couldn't get any lower.

Callmelennie - calling the parodist names? Maybe you'd like to point out where I've done that. And what "attempt to run down your rating" would that be?
Ben Gleck - January 06, 2012 - Report this comment
The beauty of Glen Beck is in his airing of Van Jones speaking in public. Beck doesn't become a source, but merely a chronicler of factual recorded history. Van Jones is captured on film admitting he's a communist. Admitting he hates capitalism and wants a complete overthrow of the government. Admits he wants to redistribute the wealth. He's Obamas kind of guy.These facts are not up for debate, liberals. Keep watching MSNBC and live a life of flaccid ignorance. (looks like your outvoted 16-2).
Callmelennie - January 28, 2012 - Report this comment
The "attempt to run down the rating" refers to the one or two 111 ratings I get everytime I post a song directed at Obama, which never happens in any of my other 30 song that aren't explicitly directed at Obama. The connection is obvious, which is why you get so many 555 ratings on these songs -- People who would otherwise not vote do so to counter you.

I'm one of the four previous ones to have done this title switch. It escaped the wrath of the opposition; on the contrary, even a couple of Obama supporters left favorable votes and comments. It currently has more than 1100 page views. Feel free to check it out, and to see if there's anything different between the two that could account for that, or could be useful in the future. And welcome to AIR, flame wars and all ;) [1]

Lennie, this is great. I see you have run into a couple of the usual A$$h***s here, who love to hear themselves pontificate in writing. Get used to it, and just ignore the idiots. and keep writing these jewels. The more truth you write, like here, the more they will scream...which is the point sometimes. Keep it up!

I'm a Democrat and I love Obama, but I have to say this is HILARIOUS! Great job!
