I wish I could claim credit..but alas, I can only say that I know the original song well enough to sing this to the tune in my head and it did make it all the better.

(It's meant in pure fun...)

....To the tune of 'The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald'


The Wreck of the Obama-Biden

The Legend lives on from Chicago on Down
of the group that they call “The Tea Party”
This hate group, they say, loves to eat Chik-Fil-A
and their votes in November are hearty.
With a deficit score some fifteen trillion more
than the Obama-Biden had starting
That good ticket and proud was lost like Maureen Dowd
when November’s Red State surge came early.

The ship was the pride of the Democrat side
who swore they would take back Wisconsin
As the Socialists go, it was lefter than most
‘cause they came from Chicago or Harvard
rounded out with some hacks who came from Goldman Sachs
who hadn’t paid all of their own tax
And later that term did they all start to squirm
could it be a subpoena they were fearing?

The oil prices gave a tell-tale jump
and the gas-prices leaped at the pump
And every man knew, as the Pres’dent did too
was the ghost of Jimmy Carter come stealin’
Healthcare came late and gay marriage had to wait
after November of Two Thousand And Ten
When the votes all came in, the House had caved in
in the face of a Teanami maelstrom

In their first campaign they sounded quite lame,
“Stand up, Chuck!” (God love you, what am I sayin’?)
In the second campaign, to discredit Bain, Obama said,
“Fellas, you didn’t build that.”
Axelrod wired in, no donations came in
their supporters had gone into hidin’.
And in every town where the teleprompter went down
‘twas the wreck of the Obama-Biden.

Does anyone know where Election Night goes
when Red States turn the minutes to hours?
The pundits all guess they’d have won the Midwest
if they’d put Governor Walker behind ‘em.
They might have split up and put Hillary in
if they hadn’t been called out by Palin
And all that remains are the feces (no names)
of the Occupy Wall Street crowd failin’.

Illinois cheats, and New York repeats
as the bluest, of deep-blue-state havens
California gleams, like a socialist’s dreams
Its coastland and cities progressive
And in the East, Washington, DC at least
takes in all the taxes they send her
And elections go as Congressmen know
as the Tea Party in November remembers

In a far-left-wing Church in Chicago they prayed,
in “Bill Ayers’ Communist Cathedral”
The church bell chimed, it rang fifty-seven times
for each state sinking Obama-Biden
The Legend lives on from Chicago on Down
of the group that they call “The Tea Party”
Republicans, they said, made the map turn pure red
when the Teanami of November came early!

This is one of the cuter parodies I've seen yet this season. It'd be great to see someone actually do it to the music.

Cute and it it almost works. I tried following along in my head to the song. The first two choruses were not bad, but it kind of falls apart after that. The cadence doesn't match the rhythm of the song.

I was wondering if it was just me. I thought it slipped a bit and I had to skip to get back to the mental tune. I've seen a number on Steve Bryant's site like that on lyrics where the song itself comes out fine though. Hmmm... Well shoot. I guess it isn't quite as good as I thought. That explains the total dead response. lol.

I still think it's cute but then the base song is one of my favorites.

Thanks for saying something on what you noticed. I had been curious.

That's funny!
I wrote a takeoff on the same tune but mine was called "The wreck of Republican Party".
I might have to dig up my recording of it for you.

I can remember the first lines were:
The legend lives on from Watergate down
To the wreck that they call Iran-Contra

Hey, that sounds cute! If you find it, please post or let me know? I'd love to hear that version. I can imagine so much they could do with that tune on parody.
