The Lyrics

shook us up lately that's all right
Sarah will do her part
now we must listen to people who'll lead us four years to the dark.oh
every thing we have he'll take away
let's hear what that slimy git will say, but
he won't tell you why

pay for the lazy
it just ain't right
pay off my mortgage too
they won't have to worry,
just tax the right
as he loves to
nothing wrong obama says, you see
killing the economy
and he won't tell you why,
no no baby he won't tell you why..
he won't tell you why

in four years we'll send these clowns away
right the ship the sun will shine agaixn
and he won't tell you why
he won't tell you why
he'll just watch us die

You're a liar, Malcolm. Our President HAS told us why: Because your guys screwed it up. And by the way, the Eagles are also quite liberal, especially Don Henley -- ironically, a Texan. Glenn Frey, of course, is from Detroit, and probably supports the United Auto Workers all the way.

Amen to that, Michael P! I enjoyed your comment. Btw, I left my signature vote on this author's other two Eagles parodies from today, but they didn't have comments enabled.
