If I didn't see the direct link
myself, I would have sworn this was a parody from The Onion
. But no, Murfreesboro Post
columnist Stephen Lewis offered this jaw-dropping "Ode to President Obama" yesterday, giving the national media
one more good reason to laugh at Middle Tennessee.
With no further ado (because I'm still gasping for air), Stephen Lewis' "Ode to President Obama," sung to the tune of The Jeffersons
“Well we’re movin’ on up,
To Washington, D.C.
To a deee-luxe pimp pad,
Yeah we’re movin’ on up,
To the White House.
I’ll be jetting with P. Diddy cross the sky.
McCain can’t score on the east coast,
Palin was just a cute, cheap thrill.
Took a whole lot of campaign promises,
To take over Capitol Hill.
Now we’re livin’ in the White House
Chewin’ on the government fat.
As long as we here
It’s tax, tax, tax!
Ripping off the rich fat cats!
Well we’re movin’ on up
To the big time.
To a dee-luxe sweet crib
That’s just too fly.
Moooovin’ on up
I finally showed McCain I’m the guy!”
Oh, and in the same column, he offered this gem:
What about this fellow who ran for state representative, Dr. Rishi Saxena? I’m not sure where he’s from but I’m pretty sure it’s not Rutherford County. From what I read about him he has some very good ideas. My advice to him would be to work on perfecting his southern accent. I’m not talking about southern Bangladesh either. And if he can’t sound southern, he could at least throw in a few y’alls and a couple fixin’ to’s every once in a while.
Thanks, Stephen, for setting Middle Tennessee's reputation back about 50 years!
