"Barack's the Man Today"

Parody Written by:

Barry J. Mitchel

The Lyrics

As the US president's honeymoon fades, this song is ripe for parody. I use his boyhood nickname to match the original words. Stanza 1 describes the pre-inaugural euphoria, and the remainder is advice for the growing opposition in Congress and on the streets.
Barry's the man today
Double though we may see
Maybe he'll hike your pay
Raise your lifestyle for free
Barry's the man today
Boehner can sigh in sorrow
Barry's the man today
For change that stays tomorrow
Barry's the man, hurray!

Barry's the man to sway
Springfield IL was his town
We'll get Chicago's way
After Barack dons crown
Counterattack him and
Parry the man's foray
Give him his whirl as crafter
Give understanding, stay
And save the gist for after

Slowly introduce him to the better things
Republican, conservative, not mean
Bill of Rights
Low taxes
Beware of the man today
Handle him meekly, gently
Harry the man today
And drain him subsequently

Carefully expose him to the facts of life
If he free enterprise betrays anew
Have a pol roast
Have a fed wake
Have tea party
Have two!
So tarry the man, delay
Don't let him spend and borrow
Carry the man away
Can't change his ways?
Change malaise of his days
Guys and Dolls has a new Broadway revival. I'm at for feedback.
