The Lyrics

the legend has grown from chicago on down
of the chosen, anointed obama
as the sheep sit and bray, all this man has to say
is we're in for four years of bad drama
when the tax is offshore hire 800 more
new inspectors to fleece corporations
and to fund your pet scams, stimulus bill obam's
he now calls tax avoidance "evasion"

increase taxes here as he spreads commie fears
of the tax havens, he'll get his quota
but what will this do? well folks I tell you
not improve your sad life one iota
as he lowers the boom, it will bring sadness and gloom
as the companies fold up forever
for the risks that we take, and the wealth that we make
will they pay more back here, I say never...

the drive by always write that his moves are all right
four hundred more thousand are idled
but the communists know blaming Bush is all a go
their love for their messiah unbridled
as the country's out of work, he stands there like a jerk
thinking tax and spend policy's perfect
the statistics they come in, and his lies are wearing thin
as the markets say his ideas won't work

when payment time comes, my children hate these bums
for the trillions in com-engineering
for the little ones know where their tax increases go
higher paying for socialist steering
as the auto makers close, he just thumbs up his nose
at the bond holders, they will go feral
when it's time to reinvest, he better have a war chest
now barack will get it both barrels

does anyone know where entrepreneurs go
when incentive to take risk is beaten?
it will never be good, with this new robin hood
we will starve when the last crumb is eaten
as the overseas crews all rejoice at the latest news
as the companies close up in Newark
and obama's latest try at the infrastructure pie
did I mention that city of sewers???

I'll end this little song and I'll tell you that it's wrong
for this communist lefty non-wisdom
for all that it entails as the leftist still awail
in the country's now deep rooted schisms
now four years is a time for this economic crime
as he appoints more of his own tax law tighteners
and daschle types go and we'll all soon know
just appoint corporations as "geithners"
