The Lyrics

I was in a mood for retro
I wrote up one more song for amiright
and all the commies tried to shout me down
I cover my ears and I write

oh what's he gonna do? this commmie dude?
it's a shame your bailout's down, once again
he just came from Chicago,
and he's screwed up once again

something about this is familiar
I could swear I've seen these clowns before
a left swing the commies have taken
and they're now coming back for more

it took a while, but we're now seeing horror
and the policies are bad just the same
his honesty sits with him lowly
he is a com-type with no shame

and he said how people carry
mortgages thorugh and through
but for millions of votes
we can bail out you folks
on last September 2

it was something of a fairy tale
a kenyan baby's come far
he's bailing out hummer, gm, and now dodge
omaba's now gone too far

you see he is full of his barack-ness
economy will die
soon we'll never see a goodlife
we'll soon be off with this bad guy

oh he's got sometning inside, he
acts and speaks so blind
he's beguiled, man, wizards
he's lying to me I think he's losing his mind
oh he's got something inside, he
don't know much about..
and he's now been letting the lefties decide free
oh we'll need time
it runs out...

maybe he's high, as he's whining
now he's lying to us all
his lips are moving he's lying
but he's trying to please all..

there is not much more for me to talk about
my assets and wealth now are gone
lost my house my car in the driveway
but it's spread out so thin it's gone

and he said we're in this together,
but he must be so bloody arranged
and he spread out twenty dollars to people gere and out there
and said .. funny, there's no change

well another man says he's a commie
and another man says he's a jerk
another man watched his 401 go
said.. obama, you're a JERK

and he walked away with silence
the telepromtper wouldn't flow
and he don't know what a disaster
and his throng just lets it go

you see he is full of his barack-ness
economy will die
soon we'll never see a goodlife
we'll soon be off with this bad guy

and now our lives are crappy,
he calls the white house home
and he, so full of his barackness
I really think the man is stoned....
and he's whining oh why...is he stoned???

Someone is going round removing the cookies to give this dude artifically high votes.

Good parody, Malcolm. At least one or more saw it coming. This 'Joe' guy who confronted him during the campaign. and the rest who just silently, more or less...voted against him. I like the teleprompter bit and heard he had to take 10 of them to England when he visited.

There are no “commies” on Amiright, Malcolm. Obama hasn’t screwed up at all, unless you count reaching out to the Republicans, in the hope that they love their country more than they love their party, a “screwup.” Is he “Kenyan” or “from Chicago”? Pick one and go with it. If your assets and wealth are all gone, blame the guy who caused the economic meltdown, George W. Bush. I like how you rhymed “jerk” with “JERK.” Really, Malcolm, you’ve done better than that, even when you lie. But at least the pacing was good… on second thought, no, at MOST the pacing was good. And to Jason: It's not only that, but also to give artificially low votes to those of us who support our President. Really, if this parody were truly judged on merit, as Harry himself would say, the lesson wouldn't get very far.

All 0-supporters on here are commies, or national socialists. (Fig leaf's difference between the two, really; their tactics are much the same.) The blame for this current meltdown rests almost entirely with Democraps Bawney Fwank, Maxine Waters, and--to a lesser extent--Bill Clinton (for their part in extending and maintaining the thoroughly racist and socialist Community Reinvestment Act). President George W. Bush and the Republicans actually spoke out on this issue years ago, only to have Bawney Fwank and his fellow traitor Democrap traitors block them at every turn, insisting everything was fine. The video proof of this is still up on YouTube for everyone who isn't as blind, deaf, stupid, illiterate, deceitful, and treasonous as Pacholek the Parasite here. Their evil Messiah 0bama is already doing everything he can to destroy our country and turn it over to its Islamofascist foes. When his boneheaded eco-fascism wrecks the power grids, the urban hellholes rats like Pacholek infest will be the first to erupt in riots and they'll be right in the middle of them. When the survivors come scavenging out here, we country-dwelling conservatives will have our pitchforks and shotguns handy, so don't expect any escape by that route either. See you in Hell, Dims! Can't be too far away for you now.

tyoc, I would consider Michael Pacholek a friend. no need to slam one of my friends here. My sentiments again, are strictly POLITICAL. If I met Obama, I would honour the occasion. he seems genuine,and he loves his wife and family. Two qualities I respect and admire in himm. Politically, we're at polar ends, but remember it's NOTHING PERSONAL. Mike, Sorry man, there are extremists and name callers on both sides outside of the parodial sparring ring..

Sir Higgins speaks as Jesus would. knowing of his wisdom, i scroll down slowly while reading his oracles of truth, whilst i shutter in reverent awe as this god like prophet speaks. great writer, great attitude.

Harry would not have approved. Just read the lyrics to "There Only Was One Choice"
