The Lyrics

we will pay dearly now, obama's come
he will rule all in a disgraceful way
gone are the nice folks that make this run
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day

I think we need Palin now, obama gone
all of the assets here disappeared
gone is the wealth that I've been workin for
we're gonna need the right, right right,
people some day
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day

look all around there's nothing but loose guys
all empty heads the communist loose ties

we will pay dearly now, obama's come
he will rule all in a disgraceful way
gone are the nice folks that make this run
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day


we're gonna need the right, right right,
people some day
we're gonna need the right right right
one to come up one day

You think you're paying dearly now? As your boy Reagan would say, "You ain't seen nothin' yet!"

perfect song for that parody. I was tempted to smile, but when considering the subject, obama, I certainly didn't feel like it. 5's

One of my favorite original songs. A very fine adaptation that completely reverses the optimistic tone of Johnny Nash's hit.
