Baracked With Obamalitis

The path ahead has been cleared,
And they can see again.

Malaised with doubt and fear...
And paralyzed with beliefs,
An economic doom...
Would mushroom to leave them,
Like blinded deer!

Hypnotized by appetites...
That have kept them sitting,
In despair they believed was near.

And then a vision of light appears!
The people stand in shock.
They begin to cheer a voice...
Out of the darkness coming.
Out of the darkness,
They all hear with opened ears.

Baracked...
With Obamalitis.
A leader with moxie.
One with pop appeal that rocks,
Is here!

Baracked they are!
And sizzled with Obamalitis.
They've been inflicted with a hope.
The kind that excites.
Like the prancing done,
By speeding antelope!

They've neen Baracked...
With Obamalitis.
A leader with moxie.
One with pop appeal that rocks.

And energized like no leader before...
To bring their hopelessness to a stop!
For greater days they have yet to pave.
To shed upon their cloudy shores,
Once more to crave in their praise!

Baracked they are!
And sizzled with Obamalitis.
They've been inflicted with a hope.
The kind that excites.
Like the prancing done,
By speeding antelope!

The path ahead has been cleared,
And they can see again.
