Original Song Title:

Original Performer:

Parody Song Title:

"Blame It On Obama"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

The idea for this one came just before Christmas, when I read a news story where some right-wing pundit (O'Reilly, possibly.. can't remember exactly) had already started blaming Obama for the way the economy was tanking, a few weeks before he even got into power.

You might not think Obama has the right policies for getting the US (not to mention the world's) economy out of the state it's in, but only a completely blinkered, utterly dimwitted idiot would try saying he's responsible for it. Shame there are so many of them about.
There's crazies on the right wing
Who ain't so good at thinking
They're doin' down Obama
And that's their game

Republicans feel sour
'Cause now they're out of power
And from last year they've got
Someone to blame

Chorus:
Don't blame it on George Bush
Don't blame it on Clinton
Don't blame it on Reagan
Blame it on Obama

Don't blame it on Rumsfeld
Don't blame Condoleeza
Don't blame it on Cheney
Blame it on Obama

I've seen how right-wing prats go
Ape-shit on right-wing chat-shows
But how Obama did it
Is quite vague

It seems Obama has caused
Iraqi and Afghan wars
Holocaust, bank collapse
And the plague

Chorus:
Don't blame it on O'Reilly
Don't blame it on Coulter
Don't blame it on Fox News
Blame it on Obama

Don't blame it on Bankers
Don't blame it on Tal'ban
Don't blame it on Hitler
Blame it on Obama.

They just can't
They just can't
They just can't accept defeat

They just can't
They just can't
They just can't accept defeat

They just can't
They just can't
They just can't accept defeat.

They just can't
They just can't
They just can't accept defeat

Chorus:

Don't blame it on Freddie
Don't blame it on Fanny
Don't blame it on Bear Stearns
Blame it on Obama

Don't blame Gen'ral Motors
Don't blame it on Ford guys
Don't blame it on Chrysler
Blame it on Obama

Obama caused the bird flu
And BSE and kuru
Scurvy and ebola
Yes, and AIDS

Whenever he's performing
He causes global warming
He's the reason why you
Can't get laid

Don't blame it on bum fluff
Don't blame it on acne
Don't blame it on BO
Blame it on Obama.

Don't blame it on fungi
Don't blame it on viri
Don't blame bacteria
Blame it on Obama

Bankers?
Taliban?
Hitler?
'Bama

Bum fluff?
Acne?
BO?
'Bama

Don't you blame it - George Bush
Couldn't have been - Clinton
No, it wasn't - Reagan
Ohhhhh... bama

Could not have been - George Bush
All Obama's fault - Clinton
Yes it's all, O....bama - Reagan
Right-wing can't be wrong - 'Bama

I don't agree with the content and can easily visualize a flame war in this parody's comment section (which I will do my best not to take part in if it actually occurs), but I'll give you 5s anyway.

Well done, Phil. Blame the fives on this great parody!

Politics aside sir, your work literally reeks of genius!

Andria - not sure what there is to disagree with in the content... it has to be all Obama's fault, doesn't it? Who else could possibly be to blame ;-)

Mark -:-)

Mobiass Stripper - that's a bit one-sided, don't you think? But then, I suppose you would be ;-)

If someone steps in dog poo on the White House lawn it will actually be his fault, but beyond that...

Phil: I'm not a Republican, so I can't agree with your parody. But it was still very good.
Phil Alexander - April 24, 2009 - Report this comment
Thanks all :-)

Harry - reckon you've got a "Strangers in the Night" parody there:
Blame the other guy - these politicians
Blame the other guy - that's their ambition
..and so on :-)

Peter - I think you've put your finger on the one thing he can be blamed for... better wash your hands

Jason - Not every parody has to end up in a flame war...

Andria - neither am I (nor am I a Democrat, I'm a Brit), I thought this was a fairly obvious piss-take of the right-whingers who started blaming Obama for things being wrong before he even took office.
Contingency - April 24, 2009 - Report this comment
Your beloved dictator-fellator traitor WAS already screwing things up before he was even officially in office. That's one reason why the market took such a dive: people anticipating his rapacious Marxist regime fled the market and took their chips with them. If you really believe he's been anything but a disaster for our country thus far, we skeptics call for you to put all your money into his failing banks for this sucker rally... so we can laugh as it either goes down in flames in another crash or goes up in smoke in the coming hyperinflation.
John Jenkins - April 24, 2009 - Report this comment
Very good spoof, Phil, but there is some validity in Contingency's comment above. The market tries to anticipate future events; and, to the extent that President-Elect Obama's programs were expected to harm the economy, it was appropriate to "blame Obama," even before he took office.

But your main point is correct. Obama has only been in office 100 days, and most of the weakness in the economy can be blamed on previous administrations and previous congresses. So we parodists should be patient because there will definitely be some good material coming from this administration in coming years.
Phil Alexander - April 25, 2009 - Report this comment
For me, "Contingency" sums it up perfectly: calling Obama a "dictator fellator traitor" is a prime example of the lack of thought that goes into attacks on him: Contingency's telling lies before he's got five words into a sentence, why should anybody believe anything that comes after? Not to mention the cowardice implied by hiding behind a pseudonym.

JJ - as much, if not more, blame falls on those who scaremonger about "rapacious Marxist regimes" (something they obviously no nothing whatsoever about) - the "market" has proven itself to be not so much "bull" or "bear" but "sheep" - bleating and following the herd. What you're saying is that because the sheep in the market were scared of what they thought Obama was going to do, it was his fault it dropped before he took office - that's the sort of self-fulfilling prophecy and it wouldn't have mattered who had been elected: you really think things would have looked any better with McCain coming in?

You're right in one respect: we should be patient, because there is very likely to be some good material on its way. Having said that, at the moment Obama's showing more integrity than any president (well, almost any politician, come to think of it.. ) in living memory. Best of luck to him - he's going to need it.

Sasha, before you go off the ****ing deep end, why don't you read the parody and find out exactly who it's taking the mickey out of? Though I have to admit, spelling "retard" wrong was beautifully ironic, whichever way you look at it.
