Barack the Knife
(Here's a ditty to play at the inauguration this Tuesday.)
Obama has such teeth, dear,
When he showed them pearly whites
He beat them, old McHeath, babe,
And he drove them… ah … out of sight.
Ya know when Barack smiles, I love to see, babe
Scarlet Bill O’s exploding head.
This Tuesday, though, you won’t see McHeath, babe,
So there’s nowhere, nowhere a trace of red.
Now at the Capitol … Oh yeah, sunny mornin’!
Where Democracy’s oozin' life … eeek!
Republicans sneakin' ‘round the corner
Could it be because of Barack the Knife?
But he’ll take the oath down by the river don’tcha know?
Where Republicans hearts just a’droopin’ on down.
Oh, payback is just, so when they scatter, babe,
Five'll get ya ten that Barry’s now in town.
Now, d’ja hear ‘bout Judith Miller? She disappeared, babe,
After makin’ Iraq a hash.
Then Dubya spent just like a sailor.
Could it be Bush’s boy did somethin’ rash?
Now competence, is comin’ back, babe.
No cronyism and no Michael Brown
Oh, the line forms on the left, babe,
Now that Barry’s back in town.
