The Lyrics

That's "The Liar" if you're not trying to match the OS' title... or don't have a N'Yawk accent.
(instrumental opening)

I see the lights that are on in his old White House window.
But I know that though the lights are on, no one is home.

He was the wrong one.
I looked back on the election, went out of my mind.

Oy-yi-yi, de liah!
Why, why, why? De liah?
I can see
he's no good for you or me.
But until 2009, we will never be free!

At break of day, I heard more blown away out in Baghdad.
Illegal wiretaps, wages go down through the floor.

He stood there laughing.
Saw his approval-rate polls, and he laughed no more!

Oy-yi-yi, de liah!
Why, why, why? De liah?
So, before
your successor comes to the door
you should know, you liah, we just cannot take any more!

(instrumental break)

He stood there laughing.
Saw his approval-rate polls, and he laughed no more!

Oy-yi-yi, de liah!
Why, why, why? De liah?
So, before
your successor comes to the door
you should know, you liah, we just cannot take any more!

You should know, you liah, we just cannont take any more!

I rarely vote and comment on political parodies (especially American politics) but this was too clever to pass on. 555
