“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Obama Man or Candy Man: Either Makes the World Feel Good

I just heard this one and had to share it with you.  I’ve heard bits and pieces of the Bob and Tom show channel-surfing on the car radio, and it can really be filthy.  But this routine is clean and pretty good.

The video below is comedian Greg Morton doing “Obama Man” to the “Candy Man” music.

I think my favorite part is “Who can take tomorrow, Spend it all today, Who can take your income and tax it all away.”  The more true, the more funny any parody is–and this one is chocked full!

Thanks to the 912 Forum, here are the lyrics:

Alright Everybody
AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, First National, Lonestar
What do you want?
1, 2, 3 hundred billion?
Common over!
I’m your Candy Man

Who can fix the mortgage
General Motors too
A bail out check for me and a bail out check for you
Obama man
yes, Obama man can
Obama man can cause he mixes it with hope and makes the world taste good

Who can give you health care
Who can save the poor
Who can pick the teams that are in the final four
Obama man
yes Obama man can
Obama man can cause he mixes it with hope and makes the world feel good

Obama man takes
Problems.. and he makes em…
he makes em.. he turns em into cream and peaches
Sugar coated smooth tongued speeches
I hope he practices what he preaches

Who can take tomorrow
Spend it all today
Who can take your income and tax it all away
Obama man
yes Obama man can
Obama man can cause he mixes it with hope and makes the world feel good

Yes Obama man takes
Every speech he makes
Gives it a whole bunch of thinkin
When Michelle Obama’s winkin
Then he runs it by Abe Lincoln

Who can buy an I-pod
Give it to the queen
Who can take economy and turn it into green
Obama man
yes Obama man can
Obama man, Obama man, Obama man

Hey Chrystler, GM
You want some money?
Ford, you want some?
No you dont?
Ok good, more for GM.
God bless this mess everybody
Obama man can
