The Lyrics

An Autumn's day in a deep and dark November, I stand alone
Gazing from the White House to the lawn below
On a freshly counted vote and now they know,
I am Barack, I am Obama.

I've been in halls and stadiums deep and mighty, I almost levitate
I have no need for Palin or that John McCain
They're for the rich and riches I disdain,
I am Barack, I am Obama.

Don't talk of votes, but I've won the most before us; it's now in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of Republicans who have lied
If they never erred, they never would have cried
I am Barack, I am Obama.

I have my hope and my change that will protect me, I am shielded like in armor
Hiding in my room from economic doom, I'll fix that one in January
I am Barack, I am Obama

And Barack feels the win
And Obama takes the prize.

I've been thinking "I am Barack!" for some time now; well, someone had to do it! Some rough pacing here and there (3.5 if I could've), but you sure made me laugh. "You get a 4/You get a 5,5!"

Like Melanie, I've had the "I am Barack! I am Obama" sub for this OS in my head for a while, but I've yet to finish anything about Obama (I have a couple on the drawing board at the moment) - he's not funny enough at the moment ;-) But a very good write.

Give it up Phil. That man will never be funny enough for you to finish penning one of those parodies. If you have not noticed, he has no apparent sense of humor. He goes after anyone and everyone who says the slightest thing about him that is negative. I see him doing what Clinton did to his adversaries and that is turning the IRS loose on them. It will be interesting to see how many people hold him up after the honeymoon is over.

There should exist a subgroup for this manner of parody, the homosexual niche should be recognized for what it is and classified as such.
