The Lyrics

Have you ever wondered why Dennis Miller and Bill O'Reilly REALLY hate Obama? Well, here is the real story. Not too long ago, Obama invited those two to a special dinner at his house and here is how it went wrong.............
One night not too long ago,
Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller,
Were fussing to get ready,
For dinner at Obama's house.
On that very evening Obama was,
Walking his dogs.
Pots of rice and stuffing,
Cooking on the stove.

Walk the dogs,
Cook the food,
Walk the dogs.

Bill and Dennis were prettying up,
Splashing on aftershave,
Starching up their suits,
They were juiced!
They were prepared to eat,
Some fancy, home-cooked food!
They had their appetite ready,
Saving stomach room for the food.
Dennis' hair was all fancy!
Bill's suit was so crisp!

Style the hair,
Starch the suit,
Style the hair,
Starch the suit.

"Oh no!" Obama said.
"The rice and stuffing have burned!"
Then the dogs pooped on the vegetables.
"Oh no! Bill and Dennis will be here any minute.
And the turkey is done. But now its on the floor.
And now, they are both here, I have no time to order take out,
What to do? I guess, I will just fix some burgers.
That will have to do, That will have to do!"

Bill and Dennis are waiting,
Waiting in the living room.
Their stomachs are rumbling,
Rumbling big time.
No chips or dip to munch!
Bill O'Reilly is furious and hungry,
And, he will punch someone out.
Eager to be fed,
He goes to the kitchen door,
And, knocks on it.

Yells and shouts:
Obama says:"Food is ruined!
Eat fast food!
Food is ruined!
Eat fast food!"
Again, none of this really happened. This is fiction! ;)
