The Lyrics

Disclaimer: This song is a satire of the 2008 presidential election, and is not meant to be taken seriously. This is also not meant to be taken as a promotion for either candidate, and if the reader finds there to be bias towards a particular candidate I assure you it is not intentional. Some of the lyrics are hard to follow, but it had to be done to fit the pacing of the original song. If anything is particularly confusing leave a comment, and I'll respond to it. With all this in mind, please read and enjoy!
Obama told us, yes he told us "We really need a change"
He also told us, "They'll use the race card to ruin my campaign"
Just the other day I heard he was off to Iraq, to prove he can clean up when Bush is sacked

Obama's alright, McCain is alright
The elections gettin' near
November, November
But don't throw your vote away!

McCain says "We'll be in Iraq until our job is done"
China maybe next if they don't leave poor Tibet alone
McCain is a true homeboy, he's a real America fan
He knows what's really best for us, so he'll smear as best he can

Obama's alright, McCain is alright
whoever wins we will cheer
November, November
But don't throw your vote away!

Whatever happened to saving the planet? Obama wants 'ta drill
McCain says he'll make health care cheap, but he'll take away the pill
Times are getting darker as this battle rages on
At least in just a few months Bush will finally be gone!

Obama's alright, McCain is alright
the race is just a little weird
November, November

If anyone is confused as to why there is another copy of this, it is because when I submitted it to the website they said they didn't get it because of an error. It turns out they did receive it, and so when I posted it again it created two.
