The Lyrics

The other day Old Man Ribber wrote a song about a group called Organizing For Action (O.F.A.), and their fund raiser that would give any individual or organization which contributes $500,000 a special membership. The reward will be face-to-face meetings with President Obama at least four times every year. The parody title and OS title had me thinking that I knew what this song was going to be so I started singing it and soon realized not only were the words not going along with the music but it was also way too short. It was then that I realized my mistake. So here for you is the song that was playing in my head, I hope you like.
If you wanna’,
If you wanna’ meet the Prez you’re gonna’ have to come across with lots of cash.
If you’re gonna’,
If you’re gonna’ see the king you’re gonna’ have to pony up and do it fast.
If you wanna’,
If you wanna’ just hang out you’re gonna’ have to make a gift from your vast stash
But if you’re Tiger,
If you’re Tiger “Freaking” Woods I guess we’re gonna’ have to just give you a pass

But I would pay 500 large
And I would pay 500 K
Just to be the man who paid 500 grand to meet the “One” today.

O.F.A. says,
O.F.A says I can see my Lord and Savior up to four times in a year.
501 C
501 C (4), that means that I can give and still keep my name in the clear.
But 500, (yes 500)
500 thousand is a lot, a tidy sum to pay to bend the Bamsters ear.
Still it’s worth it
After all it’s for the cause, and it is nice to give back to Obama Claus.

But I would pay 500 large
And I would pay 500 K
Just to be the man who paid 500 grand to meet the “One” today.

(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences with the “One”, they don’t come cheap.)
(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences; Audiences charged a price that’s awful steep.

Well the hubbub
‘Round the lame stream media is there’s no good way that this bad news can be spun.
Yes, they’re cryin’
And inside they all are dyin’ How could our god just go and act Republican.
Though we’re biased (though we’re biased)
Still sometimes we like to think, we’re still objective as we were once, long ago.
And it’s so painful (oh so painful)
When our consciences’ kick in, it makes us stop and think and that just hurts our brain.
(It’s a dull annoying throbbing kiiiind of pain)

But I would pay 500 large
And I would pay 500 K
Just to be the man who paid 500 grand to meet the “One” today.

(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences with the “One”, they don’t come cheap.)
(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences; Audiences charged a price that’s awful steep.
(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences with the “One”, they don’t come cheap.)
(Audiences, Audiences, Audiences, Audiences; Audiences charged a price that’s awful steep.

But I would pay 500 large
And I would pay 500 K
Just to be the man who paid 500 grand to meet the “One” today-yay-yay

He probably had to pay Tiger and with our tax money. Did the Oscars pay Michelle?
