The Lyrics

Mitt Romney is the gift that keeps on giving. I expect that by November I will have another dozen parodies to help ridicule this greedy clown. GOBAMA 2012!!!
There's a rich man... he's a "fat cat"
Livin' in a gated neighborhood
He's got an olympic-sized pool out there in his back yard
You know he thinks that he's got it so good

And there's a woman in a Rolls-Royce
Pullin' up to a traffic stop
And she looks at you and says
"Hey mister, do you think you'd have any Grey Poupon?"

Oh, but that ain't America for you and me
(It) ain't the America we want to see, baby
That ain't America; nothing's for free, yeah
Reposessed houses for you and me

There's Mitt Romney in a flannel shirt
Speakin' to a big corporation
He's got greasy hair, and a sneaky smile
He says, "Donate to help win my nomination"

'Cause they told Mitt when he was younger
Said: "Boy you're gonna be President"
But with all those flip-flops and all the crazy sh*t, he kinda came and went

Oh, but that ain't America for you and me
(It) ain't the America we want to see, baby
That ain't America; nothing's for free
Reposessed houses for you and me
Yeah, baby they can't fool me!

The Gas people and Oil people
How low would they go go go?
Find some oil in some tar sands
And spill it all in the Gulf of Mexico, ooh yeah

They're the winners; we're the losers
To them, we're no big deal
'Cause the middle class, baby, pays for their thrills, their bills
Their spills that kill

Oh, but that ain't America for you and me
(It) ain't the America we want to see, baby
That ain't America; nothing's for free
Reposessed houses for you and me

Oh, but that ain't America for you and me
(It) ain't the America we want to see, baby
That ain't America; nothing's for free
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Reposessed houses for you and me
