Parody Song Title:

"I'd like to Give America Some Hope"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

More sadness over the plight of America's economy...
I'd like to give the homeless a home
And boost the economy
Eliminating outsourcing forever
And legally, not secretly, keep defending democracy

I'd like to give America some hope
Eliminating downward mobility
Create about 200 million jobs
And promote clean energy

I'd like to see President Obama for once
Actually do SOMETHING!!!
Not mandating healthcare while taking from the poor
But bring true change for everyone

(No longer living in fear)
I'd like to give America some hope
(Give America real change today)
Save our economy

I'd like to give America some hope
Instead of seeing America short-changed

I'd like to give the homeless a home
And boost the economy
Eliminating outsourcing forever
And legally, not secretly, keep defending democracy

Pacing sounds a bit off. But I would like to see Obama do something to deserve that premature Nobel Prize.

Yeah, there are some flaws in this one and I didn't know that this song is more than just the Coke version!!!
