The Lyrics

Well it's all come out of Washington, at least that's what I see
and if the stripes are right you'll be bailed today, he'll raid the treasury
oh Obama can do miracles, just you wait and see
believe me...

we're not far from Obama land and now he can pretend
and if you're on the right there is no joy until we win again
Oh Obama please do miracles, make the world go green
deceive me

Oh bailing, taking away bank's own responsibility
fill the forms and the cash will come from me
there'll be equity

fantasy, it's all that's left you see
now he's bailing
all tied up in economies every word is like blashpemy
don't you believe me?

Oh bailing, taking away bank's own responsibility
fill the forms and the cash will come from me
there'll be equity

well it's not that far to parity spread the wealth from me
and when the time is right he will take away
my four-o-one from me
Oh Obama's sounds so lyrically the teleprompt deceit..
believe me..

Oh bailing, taking away bank's own responsibility
fill the forms and the cash will come from me
there'll be equity

Sorry to say this, but you _failed_ to make a good parody of this early 80s song. Content sucked.

What Mr 1s said; I'm *failing* to see how this parody makes any sense. And he's right, this was a big hit in 80; I was only a year old at the time, but I still know the song.
