The Lyrics

It's been a while since I've submitted anything but, this one just came to me as a timely little ditty. I hope the optimism here prevails. I will post a recording of this parody soon.
It's Obama time, don't know whether he's right
But I'll step right up, kiss Bush goodbye
Yes, a brother's fine
We'll vote women, we'll vote women in next time
On the brink of a dive
Economy just might survive

If your daddy's rich, he can pay for our meals
If your daddy's poor, he'll get a good deal
Say so long, McCain
You and Sarah can return to normal lives
When the sun went down
You done good but, you just couldn't swim the tide

We’re in debt, people
War has brought us to our knees
Spending every penny on those poor Iraqis
It's Obama time
Country’s ailin’, John and Palin weren't the key
We'll all be happy
Make a livin' here in our democracy

Sing along with us
Dee dee dee-dee dee
Dah dah dah-dah dah
Yeah we're hap-happy
Dah dah-dah
New Daddy, new daddy, O-ba-ma
Dah-do-dah-dah-dah
Dah-dah-dah do-dah-dah

Now the winter's here, and we’re gonna be fine
Raise your glasses, wear a smile because
This is Obama time
We'll all sing again
We'll be thrivin' when the markets settle down
We can ditch Condee Rice
Bring your friends and we'll all go paint the town

I enjoy every Obama-related parody that gets onto this site, (with the exception of those written by "Poli-tick-ly Incorrect", whom I suspect to be Linda Terhune under a new name and IP address), and this parody was great, too. My mother, who is a staunch Republican and has ridiculed me every step of the way, from my first election in 2000, in which I voted for Al Gore, to the 2004 election, in which I voted for Kucinich, to this one, where I voted for Hillary in the primary but Obama in the main election, would probably hang me if she went to my house when I am writing comments or working on parodies, but thankfully, she lives in a retirement community in Florida and I live over two thousand miles from her. 5s for you!

Oh, bugger.. sorry, Rick - I hit the 1 on "overall" and didn't notice until I'd clicked the vote button. Anyway.. good to see you back, and I look forward to the recording. Many good title subs, and let's hope we're still as optimistic in four years :-)

Thank you Andria, alvin, John, Phil and Peregrin. Don't worry about the 1 Phil, it's no big deal.

Alvin and Peregrin are on the money with their comments.

Good to see you back, Rick! I would have preferred a bigger change to the skat verse, but 555 overall.

Good job, Rick

more small minded hate speech impossible to fit to music.
Rick C - December 09, 2008 - Report this comment
Thank you Stan, Agri and AFW. Croper, I don't understand your comment. I hate nobody. I am just trying to bring a laugh or, a smile to people. That is certainly not hateful. As far as it being impossible to fit to music, I have recorded the parody and, musically, I'm quite happy with the way it fits. Comments like yours are spiteful. Who has the smaller mind?
