The Lyrics

Haven't been by here in a while, thought I'd take a look and see what's going on and got inspired. Here it is.
Obama spoke to senseless throngs
His race, he was promoting
Historical, the siren song
For this you went out voting?

His wife, not proud, she said out loud
His daughters, non-emoting
A vote of present, in the senate
For this you went out voting?

"The seas will fall" and "We’ll be loved"
The media was quoting
The One, the one we’re waiting for
For this you went out voting?

For then against, a straddled fence
Say, Kerry set that floating
But you decry, I don’t know why
For this you went out voting?

You want to bring the Muslims in
You’ll bitch when stuff’s exploding
Perhaps it’s you who loses when
For this you go out voting

You seem to have a hang-up, friend
Race bait, you are full-throating
But Bernie, white and Shrillary
For them you go out voting?

You mock degrees you couldn’t earn*
Because of where there from?
But Ivy League republicans
You also say are dumb

Pete Seeger was a picayune
No talent worth denoting
As for the Trumpster, though rough hewn
For him, I’ll go out voting
* or maybe you could, I don't know.

I wouldn't be surprised if the amount of votes for this parody will end up being higher for the potential voters turnout in the election this year.

Can someone suggest a good version of TOS (The Original Song) for me on YouTube? It seems to have a really good structure for parodies.
