The Lyrics

another drone,more lies this time
but this lefty man just keeps up with his whine
if he was somewhat better democratically we'd see
a lefty with a brain cell too,
but that's still a dream
that is still a dream..

whoa try a little fibbin' from the left you'll see
it won't work, you'll lose,
you lie foolishly
and when I hear you fibbin, it just wrankles me
just get on your plane
go away again
and talk more truthfully
but try a little libbin'
you're a democratic flea

ask the press to look for you
and the teleprompter's broke what will you do?
without your pre-wrote fibbin'
would your words add up to three?
ask a girl like Sarah what
it takes to lead the free
what it takes to lead the free

whoa try a little fibbin' from the left you'll see
it won't work, you'll lose,
you lie foolishly
and when I hear you fibbin, it just wrankles me
just get on your plane
go away again
and talk more truthfully
but try a little libbin'
you're a democratic flea

now the G.O.P is cheerin
as our Sarah leads our plea
without obama's fibbin' and we soon will lead..

Obama doesn't lie, which is "change."

I think the funniest line is "ask a girl like Sarah what it takes to lead the free".
