The Lyrics

Obama-man; a Song by Ron Lipsman, Sung to the tune of Piano Man (with sincere apologies to Billy Joel)
It’s nine AM on a Wednesday
As the cabinet slowly shuffles in.
Hillary’s right here sitting next to me,
Thinking “How in the hell did he win?”

She says, “Barack, can you tell me a secret?
It’s just killing me; I really must know.
Rahm told me once;
Man, that guy was a dunce;
Where you born in the Belgian Congo?

[Refrain]
Sing us a song, you’re Obama-man,
Sing us a song tonight;
Well we’re all in the mood for prosperity,
But you’ve got us feeling uptight.

There’s Biden, Holder and Geithner.
My pal Tim, he wrecked the currency.
Yea Eric’s a bigot
And Joe is an idiot;
I’m thinking Larry, Moe and Curly.

And way down the table sits Gates,
My one token from the GOP.
But I think that it’s time to get rid of him,
Since I plan to deep six the Navy.

Now I’m really proud of Obamacare
And Dodd-Franks was very good news.
They’re exploding the debt
Unsustainable, and yet…
I‘ll just put all the blame on the Jews.

Well I managed to kill Bin Laden,
But they blame me for America’s decline;
Can’t they see, making the US like France
Is an amazing idea of mine?

Sing us a song, you’re Obama-man,
Sing us a song tonight;
Well we’re all in the mood for prosperity,
But you’ve got us feeling uptight.

Half the nation thinks I’m a socialist,
And the others that I practice Islam.
But they’d really raise a stink
If they knew that I think
That America’s eternally damned.

‘Cause Washington was a dirty slave-owner
And Hamilton was probably a queer.
Jefferson raped Sally
In a dark Monticello alley;
Man, what am I doing here!

Sing us a song, you’re Obama-man,
Sing us a song tonight;
Well we’re all in the mood for prosperity,
But you’ve got us feeling uptight.

I wish I'd thought of this one. Wait a minute, I did. And, unlike your falsehood-infested piece, in mine, I told the truth: http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/billyjoel316.shtml
Actually, he's "Obama-manchild" like Rush says - June 08, 2011 - Report this comment
Pay no attention to Pacholek, Ron. His fervently drooling devotion to his "messiah" is only equalled by his total ignorance of politics. His "truth" in his parody version of this song- submitted on 11/06/2008- is that Obama won the election. Wow, what a brilliant observation! He needs to update the parody, since the last election put the GOP back in control of the house and polls show voters are overwhelmingly against the current regime. Obama is a one-termer and will go down as the worst leader of any free society ever. 555 for this and your truth about Biden, Holder, and Geithner!

I like the part about Hillary Clinton wondering how Obama got elected to the job God was reserving for her. "We're all in the mood for prosperity" fits well. "America the Damned" was a line from Obama's Chicago "Christian" preacher. OS is a favorite of mine and lends itself well to the long-form story-telling parody.

Ron - But you have not mentioned the REAL cabinet...the czars and union bosses! I'll check your recorded versions - from experience I know that the words often line up better in performance than on the printed page. Until then, cleverly said! ;D
