The Lyrics

Our President doesn't need a teleprompter to sing this. But he's probably a little more confident in his ability to fix it than this makes him sound.
(instrumental opening)

(Turn around... )
Every now and then I get a little bit lonely.
This job makes you feel alone.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then I get a little bit tired
of Republicans playing to our fears.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
that the last of 8 years were too much.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then I get a little bit brain-re-fried
but then I look at all of you guys.

(Turn around, Barack... )
Everything that Bush has pulled apart.
(Turn around, Barack... )
Everything that Bush has pulled apart.

(Turn around... )
Every now and then they get a little dishonest.
They charge me with something wild.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then they get a little bit hopeless
and they're lying like they always will do.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then they get a little bit angry
after Rush Limbaugh tells them what I did.
(Turn around... )
Every now and then I get a little bit brain-re-fried
but then I look at all of you guys.

(Turn around, Barack... )
Everything that Bush has pulled apart!
(Turn around, Barack... )
Everything that Bush has pulled apart!

Stood there on Election Night.
And the votes came by the million.
And everybody held me tight.
And I know just how they're feelin'.
They rejected the radical right
a right that was very wrong!
Together we can take this land from where it is now
to where it should've always been, all along and how!
(All along and how!)

They don't know what to do, they're always in the dark!
For the sake of you all, I've got to give you a spark!
Yes, we can do it tonight!
Forever's gonna start tonight!
Forever's gonna start...

Once upon a time, I pointed out what was wrong.
Now you've taken me to your heart.
So much I have to do.
We're totaled, so where do I start?

Once upon a time, there was light in our land.
Finally climbed out of the dark.
What else can I say?
We're totaled, so where do I start?

(instrumental break)

(Turn around, Barack!)
Everything that Bush has pulled apart!
(Turn around, Barack!)
Everything that Bush has pulled apart!

Stood there on Election Night!
And the votes came by the million!
And everybody held me tight!
And I know just how they're feelin'!
They rejected the radical right
a right that was very wrong!
Together we can take this land from where it is now
to where it should've always been, all along and how!
(All along and how!)

They don't know what to do, they're always in the dark!
For the sake of you all, I've got to give you a spark!
Yes, we can do it tonight!
Forever's gonna start tonight!
Forever's gonna start...

Once upon a time, I pointed out what was wrong.
Now you've taken me to your heart.
So much I have to do.
We're totaled, so where do I start?

Once upon a time, there was light in our land.
Finally climbed out of the dark.
What else can I say?
We're totaled, so where do I start?

We're totaled, so where do I start?

(Economy, bright eyes... )

(Economy, bright eyes, turn around!)

No comments to back up the one bombs. . .oh well--I thought this parody paced perfectly, and though I tend not to weigh in on anything remotely political, I thought this one was really well written and humorous. . 5s

Really well done and excellent word usage; and this from a conservative!
