Change Is Here

I wrote a parody of the old, classic children's song "If You're Happy and You Know It," which is about our new killer-in-chief.

Please let me know what you think. It's got a libertarian streak in it, although it is meant to generate a couple of chuckles or two.

Change Is Here
(Sung to the tune of “If You're Happy and You Know It”)
By Todd Andrew Barnett

If you voted for Obama, change is here
If you did it for your mama, change is here
If you went to pull that lever
To vote for the man you ever,
Never think again forever change is here

He ordered no lobbyists, change is here
And he’s just an opportunist, change is here
If taxes just keep on risin’
Sinking us in the horizon
Though his people keep advising, change is here

Times are gettin’ harder, change is here
Recovery is farther, change is here
Economy is in the shitter
Though the boy is not a quitter
Even though many are bitter, change is here

Did you hear about his murder? Change is here
Pakistan’s attack is furthered, change is here
The damage is quite collateral
Hey, these things are unilateral
They’re never multilateral, change is here

One promise of his broken, change is here
There’s no good will as a token, change is here
If these times don’t get quite better
It’s not ‘cause you’re no go-getter
You follow it to the letter, change is here
