Parodies and caricatures of political campaigns have a long history. They can be mean spirited, as Liberals are noted for, or they can be just funny. “Mr. Scam Man” is funny. Two guys sitting around having fun with the song “Mr. Sand Man” and turning it into a political statement about the failed policies of President Obama
In addition to the Youtube video, I’ve typed up the lyrics so you can sing along.
So here goes, Dan Roberts singing a parody of “Mr. Sand Man” but with a political twist:
Mr. Scam Man, where is your dream?
I thought my life would be all peaches and cream.
Now I don’t have a job and I’m out of money,
And moving forward doesn’t look too sunny.
Scam Man, I’m so alone,
Don’t have a mortgage to call my own.
So much for the roses and clover,
I’m using food stamps to feed ole Rover
Mr. Scam Man, we need a cure,
And not a worldwide apology tour.
You’re tearing down our nation’s good reputation,
By trying to make us an Obama-nation.
Scam Man, don’t touch a thing,
Take more vacation time and work on your swing.
We need a president a little wiser,
Than a community organizer.
Bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb,
Bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb, bumb, O-Bumber
Scam Man, we can’t forget,
You promised you’d reduce the national debt.
That’s what so many millions gave you their vote for,
The change of your address is all we hope for.
Scam Man, hey you’re breaking our backs,
Is it a penalty or is it a tax?
Only half of us are paying our share . . . that’s fair. . .
He don’t even seem to Obama-Care
We say no, no, no-ObamaCare. . . . Yeah.
