The Lyrics

Happy 50th Birthday, Mr. President. As you're out raising the billion dollars for your campaign, don't forget the people who did the most to put you where you are. Hugs and kisses, your media! (That's all of us but Fox News!) ;D



We belong to the President's Hero-Worship Society.
Obama and we!
To express any discontent - is the worst impropriety.

He'll raise the debt limit four tril,
Yet up our legs he sends a thrill.
He laughs "No shovel-ready jobs",
We call the bad guys stupid slobs.
He's on the T.V. ev'ry day,
We say his is the only way.
O. we adore - since way back in oh-four.
He's greater than we!
We belong to the President's Hero-Worship Society.

We the press have proclaimed The One to be our true divinity.
He's our deity!
In his butt rises/sets the sun! We'll praise him to infinity.
We write odes to his chiseled bod.
The Newsweek boss says "He's like God".
He's Lincoln, Franklin, J.F.K.,
He's even Reagan if we say.
Forget Van Jones and Rev'rend Wright.
We keep such people out of sight.
All you will see - is our idolatry.
We worship Big B.!
We will honor our holy One! For this we have affinity.

We heap abuse and filthy lies
On those who dare to criticize.
We quash all questions 'bout the Czars.
We'll treat his cronies like rock stars.
On 'net, press, T.V. - we have locks
As soon as we can muzzle Fox.
We just don't care. Who says we must play fair.
We'll say what you see!
We belong to the President's Hero-Worship Society.

We're all in the tank.
Our Chosen we thank.



Please note: It's the MEDIA I'm lampooning! Only one other parody version of TOS has been posted on amiright. To share this distinction (and a few others) with Barry J. Mitchel is flattering...at least to me. ;D

The media treats THIS President with that kind of reverence? Since when? I think the last time they gave him any benefit of the doubt was on Inauguration Day when they were surrounded by 2 million black people. Since then, they've been all-Teabaggers-all-the-time. Good parody, though.

When you get right down to it, Obama is JAFP (just another f**king politician). We all know that the true Messiah is Joe Biden. (Or is that "meshugge?)

For what Obama has done, we remain indebted. Now we're just waiting for the free health care. When the nation's problems need attention, he will focus.

I don't know who said Barack is a god or a messiah but he's neither. He'd probably tell you that himself. Anyway, Lincoln, JFK and Reagan were harshly panned by the media in their time. I certainly remember Ronnie being the butt of many jokes (remember "Spitting Image" onTV?). Probably every President gets slammed by the media - except George W. Bush, maybe because his actions and words showed his corruption and idiotic stupidity in vivid living color.

Books have been written about the tingly-legged media's slobbering love affair with Obama. MP should read one someday.

Your outro hints at another M.A.S. of two, and I concur. However, BHO may not admire the media or anyone, even the once-fearsome Nancy Pelosi of my parody.

Hey, Ribber! You say that you do Karaoke Parodies at the clubs, like me, & I finally figured out how to download the music! So I burned them onto a CD, then sang along into a mic while they played, & I put 23 of them on my website, & linked them to the "recordings" section here. Did you ever think to do that, too? They also let you put original funny songs there, so I put my Ghosts. Check 'em out!
