The Lyrics


This work was inspired by my much better half who even helped me along with some of the lyrics. BTW - She loves the man even more than me and that's going some. This work has earned the good house-wifing seal of approval.

The POTUS has no equal in his ability to pay lip service and tell people what they want to hear. His problem is he is clueless on what to do about what he yacks so much about. With that said I satire in parody form what so seems to be a character defect.

Just print more paper for more cash,
Get so in debt the dollar's trashed.
We're done with "Shrub" their bitchin' more,
We're still in Iraq and still at war. [1]

Yakety yak (Talk your smack)

Can't finish cleanin' oil strewn,
He didn't move on it 'til June.
The beaches garbaged are a fright,
And he don't give a damn, not slight.

Yakety yak (Such a slack)

He just puts off help for combat, [2]
Can't talk it out with a diplomat.
They don't respond to friendly chat,
Just let in the mob and put out the mat. [3]

Yakety Yak, (Don't talk back) [4]

(Sax Dominated Solo Interlude)

He lies in bed with dirty crooks,
His father skipped, got off the hook.
He lets his hoodlum friends decide, [5]
They do the crime, he lets them slide.

Yakety yak (Won't talk fact)

Yakety yak, yakety yak
Yakety yak, yakety yak
Yakety yak, yakety yak

Yakety yak, yakety yak

[1] He has failed to move forward in prosecuting the war - in fact he has given the enemy the advantage with his policies.

[2] Just look how he ignored McCrystal.

[3] When will he realize that illegal immigration is putting a huge drain on the U.S. economy? It is you and I who are footing the bill for this.

[4] McCrystal did and look what it got him.

[5] This references his inner circle. He listens to them and ignores his cabinet.

I don't find it surprising that politicians behave like that. The higher they climb, the more like that they seem to become. Excellent fit with OS.

Yakety yak alright! Or should I say Yakety Yuck! I wondered if this song would describe Barack Obama? Well, maybe not only him, but other politicians as well. When I was watching The Filipino Channel on my DirecTV, lots of people I know and heard want to run for president because they want money and power. As for this parody, hope TT would take a look at this one! Great job and yak on some 5's!

good write sirGuy and agree about McChrystal . . . but he was not the only one who communicates with the Boss in inappropriate ways: Hilary did it too, when she went on Indian TV to say that her visit in PakisDammed was much worst, and most unworthy of our aid . . . could this be oBama's management style in dealing with his employees ? ? ?

Andy - I think you possess great wisdom when it comes to personal character. I must agree with you 100%. Thanks, friend.

Christie - Power and money are one and the same and the majority of those in power seek out as much of it as possible. Thanks.

Mark - Yeah you are right about the "Busted" part of your term "Filibustering". The system is busted and so am I for writing this and I take full responsibility for the writing, even the parts that my wife contributed.

Farce - Thanks for being so gracious about this. I know that at one time you were really in "O's" corner. I'm glad that you can appreciate this for the satire and not get personally invested in it. Thanks, buddy.

Lady of the tiny upside down cakes - I did not know that about Hillary. If she did indeed say that to India then her diplomatic skills may be seriously lacking, but I think she probably did it out of frustration. The cabinet members seem to be only figure heads in this administration since it appears that POTUS has them in place only because these offices are expected to be filled. It is the shady folks in his inner circle that seem to actually play the role of cabinet members since he seems to only listen to their advice and not to those for which the taxpayers are footing the bill. Thanks for your read and comment once again.
