The Lyrics

(Apologies to McCain-Palin fans, but the meter was too perfect.)
Barack and Joe – by Scott Bain

It's time to throw Georgie off the cliff,
But not replace him with another stiff,
Another Bush is not the way to go,
I'm gonna vote for Barack and Joe…

Don't talk to me about a pit bull,
Been gettin' bull and now I'm kinda full,
We need a whole different rodeo,
We need to vote for Barack and Joe...

Gotta vote for Barack and Joe,
And not some cranky ol' so and so,
Forget McLumpy and his dopey ho,
Get out and vote for Barack and Joe…

We got Biden ridin' shotgun,
McCain is Palin' by comparison,
She'll turn the country into Cosavo,
We need to vote for Barack and Joe…

I'm gonna vote for Barack and Joe,
Disaster's facin' us toe to toe,
This one's a vote you can't afford to blow,
You better vote for Barack and Joe…

You better vote for Barack and Joe,
Unless you wanna be bugged and po',
And end your days up in Guantanamo?
Turn out and vote for Barack and Joe...

Obama for the win. Here's hoping he's not the Antichrist as extremists depict him.

Nice job here, Scott, loved the opening lines especially. If you're into sushi, try my "Bonafide Maki Roll" to the same rockin' tune.

I love this one!! And good choice of OS, too! I will definitely be voting for these guys tomorrow as well (of course, I decided on that a while ago). And speaking of voting, I voted a 5-5-5 on this a few days ago, but hadn't yet commented.

Sorry I missed this one when it first came out. It made me want to dance like that other weirdo from Essex County, New Jersey, Tom Cruise -- but I won't. Nobody needs to see that. Can our new President sign into law a measure preventing Cruise from doing that ever again? Yes we can, yes we can!
