The Lyrics

Sometimes, it's tough to write song parodies. You sit and look for an idea. You turn on the radio, hoping for a song that'll make you think of something funny that could go with the title or one of the lyrics. You read the paper and turn on the TV, but nothing helps: Politics, sports, pop culture... dammit, even the three stooges, Britney, Paris and Lindsay, aren't pulling any stunts this week. Days go by, and more days, and you've got nothin'. Then, just when you're about to give up... BAM! And you remember why you started doing this stuff in the first place. And you go, "YESSSS!"
Busted land from Dubya Bush.
Now we've got McCain.
I'm feeling near as faded as my jeans.
Then, on MSNBC
story gives him pain.
The floodgates open just like in New Orleans.

I pulled me a muscle
from laughing, gone bananas.
Can't laugh it soft, 'cause Johnny sings the blues.
Hillary, or else Barack.
But neither gave me quite a shock.
The "Straight Talk" man, he ain't, and now we knew.

Freedom's just another thing we can't afford to lose.
November 4th, go vote to set us free!
And now there's something really good, of this we can accuse.
It's feeling good to rip McCain, you see!
Did you hear? He's in the Lobby, tee-hee!

From the New Jersey shoreline to the California sun
Johnny told us he was good of soul.
Through all kinds of weather, we're told, good things he's done.
But he's Republican, his heart is cold.

Unless you're Vicki Iseman, she knows what game he'll play!
I've been lookin' for this story, and now I find it!
And it looks like our tomorrows can be as sweet as our yesterdays
'cause he was holding Lobby's body down the line!

Freedom's just another thing we can't afford to lose.
And now, McCain is washing out to sea!
And now there's something really good, of this we can accuse.
It's feeling good to rip McCain, you see!
Did you hear? He's in the Lobby, tee-hee!

La-da-da, da-da-da, la-da-da-da-da
la-da-da, he's in the Lobby, tee-hee.
La-da-da-da-da-da-da, la-da-da-da-da
la-da-da, he's in the Lobby, tee-hee.

La-da-da, la-da-da-DA-da-da...
La-da-da-DA-da-da-DA-da-da...
La-da-da-da-da, in the Lobby, tee-hee!
La-da-da-DA-da-da-DA-da-da-da...
La-da-da-DA-da-da-DA-da-da-da...
Hey, hey, he's in the Lobby, tee-hee!
Yeah!

He was her lover, he was her man!
The committee he chaired gave her all he can!
Come on, come on, he was in the Lobby, tee-hee!
La-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA...
Hey, hey, he's in the Lobby, tee-hee!
Wow!

(long instrumental close)

Yeah, ha!

Whoo!

La-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA-da-DA...
Hey, hey, he's in the Lobby, tee-hee!
I did three McCain parodies on February 20, 2008 -- this was the only one I wrote after I heard about this story. Can't you just see me doing The Snoopy Dance?

Let us not forget, McCain was one of the Keating Five. Once a crook. . . . Nice job, BTW.

Sir, This is truly excellent!! It is funny and it depicts McCain as younger, lusty man . . .

Barack Obama has stated that it was inappropriate for the NY Times to print the story based on anonymous sources, and I agree. But that doesn't mean it's not a good parody topic. It is, and TOS has a lot of potential, but it appears that the author was in too much of a hurry to get the parody submitted. Awkward lines like "now (present tense) we knew (past tense)" detract from the potential impact of this parody.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
