Oh Ba Rack Ob A Ma, to the tune of Ob La Di Ob La da

Check out wizzymonster's karaoke version on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuvZoxrHg9I if you want to sing along - say at some protest movement or MoveOn gathering.

Kenneth has a house on the market place
Barbie works two shifts at the plant
Kenneth says to Barbie, “Why can’t we sell this place?”
And Barbie says this as she takes his palsied hand

[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how their change goes on]
[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how does change goes on]

AIGM takes a trolley to the Geithner store
Fills it with two-hundred billion bling
Takes it back to throw Barbie out the door
And then Goldman Sachs/BOA begin to sing

[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how their change goes on]
[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how does change goes on]

In a couple of decades they have ruined a home sweet home
A future for the kids running in the yard
Of Kenneth and Barbie Jones.
MoveOn forever stays in its place
Gays still can’t hold each other’s hand.
Lynndie goes to war and does water in the face
And in 2010 they’re still in Afghanistan.

Yeah [Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how their change goes on]
[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how does change goes on]

In a couple of decades they have burnt a globe sweet globe
A future for the kids gunning in Iraq
For Madeleine’s and Colin’s bones.
Happy ever after in the oily place
Cheney had let Bush lend a hand.
Hillary tours the world and weaponizes State
And in 2010 they’re mired in Pakistan.

Yeah [Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La-la how their change goes on]
[Oh –Ba – rack O-Ba-ma Change goes on TARP
La plus ça change, la plus c'est
la même chose!

And if you want some hope chant ! Oh - Ba – rack Ba-ma!
