The Lyrics

Inspired by posters of the president springing up around L.A. portraying Pres. Obama as Heath Ledger's version of The Joker, I came up with this little ditty.
The Joker (The One)

Some people call me the Messiah … yeah
Some say that I fell from above
Some people call me 'The One'
‘cause I said I’d spread universal love
Pundits talk about me, sweetie
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
Well, don’t you worry children … Don't worry
‘cause I'm right here, right here, right here,
right here at home


‘cause I'm a talker
I'm a winner
I’m a player
And I’m a spinner
I got my press corps, deal is done.
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a D.C. broker
I got my ACORN on the run … Wooo … Woooo

You’re the dumbest clowns
That been goin' around
I really want your money
Gonna shake you down
It’s hey Obama! Hail Obama! Lord Obama! all the time
Ooo-eee baby, taxing the rich ain’t no crime

‘cause I'm a talker
I'm a winner
I’m a player
And I’m a spinner
I con the masses in the sun.
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a D.C. broker
I sure don't want to miss no one … Wooo … Woooo

Pundits keep talking about me sweetie
They say I'm doin' you wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry honey
‘cause I'm right here at home
You’re the dumbest clowns
That been goin' around
Really want your money
Gonna shake you down
It’s hey Obama! Hail Obama! Lord Obama! all the time
Ooo-eee baby, taxing the rich ain’t no crime

(fade away)
Going from "boy wonder" to "joker" in six months is quite an accomplishment. ;-)

This "Joker" is more along the lines of Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. Well-handled and nicely done. ;D

Great, great parody, meta! It's getting my fires up again(I've been on a rant the last couple parodies, and tomorrow's no exception)
