The Lyrics

As the nation and the world are going to hell in a wicker basket, it's nice to hear from our President, even if it's from a vacation in South America. BTW, the syllables really change in the second chorus and the patter interjections (Thanks for the memories!) are in parentheses (Go, daddy!). ;D

I'm off for vacation in Rio.
There's nothing to do in D.C.! (You putting me on, daddy?)
In November voters told us there's a lot to fix,
But now you only see me when I make my tourney picks. ((All top seeds, huh?)

I'm off for vacation "con brio".
What more are you asking of me? (Nice bullying summit, dude!)
What can I do 'bout deficits when I've no budget planned?
I gave the mad Kaddafi one more searing reprimand. (No troops!)

There's nothing to give us a scare.
In South America there are no troubles there.

I'm off for vacation in Rio.
The affairs of the world will have to wait. (No funny business meantime!)
'Though high priced gas - might turn our - economy to toast,
I swear the meltdown radiation will not reach the West Coast! (Not to worry, dear Nancy!)

Time for a trip, cher a mi-o.
Who can? It's Yes We Can and it will be great. (It's part of the New Civility!)
When George Bush played golf my friends and I called it a crime.
Now my whole schedule's built around each upcoming tee time.

Let Biden sit in my chair.
In South America, there are no troubles there.

And why shouldn't I get to go?
(Spoken) When the crisis phone rings at 3:00 AM, Hillary will be there to answer it just like she did in her primary campaign ads.
(Sung) Let het run the show!

(Spoken) And...Joe Biden is handling the budget negotiations with John Boehner, so there's absolutely nothing to worry about whatsoever!
(Sung) I'm like "Where's Waldo?"!

Even a cursory review of my songs reveals that I did not begrudge the President his holiday trip to Hawaii. I guess, now that the "professionals" are running the administration, less is actually more. ;D

Our "peripathetic" president is "on the road again", so you picked an appropriate but not well-known OS. Very humorous and full of recent news references. 5s

BJM - Thanks. You always make me say "Yes Santa Claus, there is a Virginia!". ;D
