-> "We'd Like To Thank Barack Obama"
Original Song Title:
"We'd Like To Thank You, Herbert Hoover"
Parody Song Title:
"We'd Like To Thank Barack Obama"
Today we're in a homeless shelter
Tomorrow we'll be on the street
Today recycling cans for pennies
So our kids can eat.
We see you go to Martha's Vineyard
We know you really need a rest
After next year you'll likely get one
At the voters' request.
"We'd like to thank Barack Obama
For bailing out the failing banks,
Your campaign checks will come tomorrow,
With Warren Buffett's note of thanks.
You passed a stimulus for workers
It also made old Wall Street cheer
This year your 401K bounced back
We cashed ours last year.
Barack you claim to be a lib'ral
The New Deal is your Northern star
But caving to the right ain't lib'ral
You're no F D R
Transparency and change you promised
An end to smoke-filled back room deals
The secret bargains still are with us
We scrounge change for meals
Barack, you say that you feel our pain
You must feel Warren Buffett's too
That tax bill made the rich guys richer
While folks like us are eating stew
Come down and eat at skid row's finest
Michele and both kids can come too
We've got no money for the dinner
Why don't we stiff you?
We'd like to thank Barack Obama
We will if he admits some day
In a confession
Put us where we are today
Come and get it, Barack!
