Parody Song Title:

"Don't Know Much About Anything (the Obama Plan)"

Parody Written by:

Malcolm Higgins

The Lyrics

don't know much U.S history
KENYAN IS HIS BIOLOGY
don't know much about the wealth he took
or the plan for hope left mistook
but he does know a thing or two
and if you let him he will rob you too
an obamawful world this will be

don't know much about much, I see
all he does is lie constantly
wouldn't raise the tax one red cent
now a promise he says he just bent

but I do know that his time is through
and soon it will be 2-0-1-2
what a wonderful world this will be

now he don't claim to be or seem prudent
but he's lying to me
for maybe now being some more prudent baby
he can stop these parodies

don't know much U.S history
KENYAN IS HIS BIOLOGY
don't know much about the wealth he took
or the plan for hope left mistook
but he does know a thing or two
and if you let him he will rob you too
an obamawful world this will be

but he does know a thing or two
and if you let him he will rob you too
an obamawful world this will be

TOS is called "Wonderful World", and the parody content is rather sucky. 1 1 1.

The pacing is excellent, and I love the parody. Either some don't know that we're not judged bye the title or that was just an excuse. 5's from me.

What a hilarious parody! I like the part that went "don't know much about American history". The so-called "eloquent" Barack says that there are 57 states in America. I also liked the part that went "what an Obamawful world this will be". You're right, Malcolm, 2012 can't come fast enough! I voted all 5's.

Poli, that is an absolute lie and you know it. O'Bama did NOT say anything about 57 states in America, it was all a figment of your imagination. Now go to your room, young man. You are grounded until 2016.

Malcolm, i have read a few of your parodies and honestly i am displeased, yes i agree there are alot better things that Obama could be doing but, you must take into consideration with the fact that he is having to fix all of Bush's screw ups. give him time, he is just starting out, and i am not saying this because i like Obama, cause i honestly dont care for him too much myself but still he does not deserve the crude and harsh comments that you are portraying in ur songs.
