The Lyrics

I call the president's Director of Information Robert Gibbs "Baghdad Bob" after Saddam Hussein's Information Minister - you remember, the one who denied U.S. troops were occupying Baghdad while you could see military vehicles in the streets behind him. Here's my tribute to our own "Baghdad Bob," a man who has the uncanny ability to say, "Don't believe your lying eyes and ears" with a straight face.
BAGHDAD BOB

Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip
Mum mum mum mum mum mum
Baghdad Bob
Sha na na na, sha na na na na

Everyday we ask him questions
and he mumbles his replies
Barack’s guy - Baghdad Bob

In the White House everyday
Deflects our quiries all away
He’s the guy that saves the day

Baghdad Bob
Sha na na na, sha na na na na
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip
Mum mum mum mum mum mum
Baghdad
Bob Sha na na na, sha na na na na

When people get the paper
and read it through and through
See the answers that he gave
They never seem to work for you

But when we ask a follow up
He giggles back some tripe
Mumbling and stumbling
Tells us we're all morons
Bagdhad Bob
The guy that blows our minds

Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Sha na na na, sha na na na na,
Yip yip yip yip yip yip yip yip
Mum mum mum mum mum mum
Bagdhad Bob
Sha na na na, sha na na na na

They call me "MISTER GIBBS!" Good rip on America's answer to "Comical Ali" ;D

You made up your own sequel: "Lying Eyes" for the OS, then take it from there. How do you know when a politician is lying? His or her lips are moving.

Like I said in another comment, the comments here are as clever as the parodies you pen. Your tip has been noted, TT. Good idea.
