The Lyrics

Obama is the rich robber
But swears he won't hurt nobody
He just wants to govern that way and he'd love to take your money!

Some is rich
Some is poor
That's the way he sees it
If you make more then 250 a year you better be prepared to lose it

So I came to jazz it up but can't afford a shovel
I break my back to earn my pay but now I'm forced to grovel

Joe the Plumber spoke up in a bar
Said he was tryin' to make a living
Obama responded let's spread the wealth
Now Marxism is the new religion

Imagine if all those Democrats were forced to earn a real living
What would you think they say to us if we took the money they're spendin'?

Someday we'll meet our rocking chair
I know that's where I'm spinning
What's the point to have a job when it's a welfare check they'll be sendin'?

Run, donkey run!
For the hills
I don't think they understand and they probably never will!

When the law takes money back from a thief, that's not "robbery." This is what Obama is doing. And that's "Mr. President -- Sir" to you.

M.P. says "the rich" are thiefs? what a poor sport generalization. want more $ ? get a second job or change jobs,or get a job, have only the things and amount of children that your budjet shows will afford you comfort. oh, you guys want me to pay, that's right. jealousy, greed, crap attitudes and under achievement through no choices or bad choices motivate many liberals.
