The Party is Wearing Thin

The Parody Department is back in the saddle, this time looking to the 1970s band Thin Lizzy for its inspiration. For your amusement, a little party song:

Obama's on the Town
by DMinor
(To the tune of "The Boys Are Back in Town");
apologies to Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy

Guess who just flew in today
On Airforce one - shut down the runway?
The U.S. Prez and first Lady -
Oh man, the traffic will be so crazy.

They were planning a night on the town;
DC scene, well it's got them down.
Couldn't just have gone to Georgetown -
New York groove is just so crazy.

The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)
I said
The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)

You know it's better in a tax-paid jet.
Never fear: that old "cap and trade" hasn't been passed yet.
Man, when I say how much it cost, you'll have a fit -
Money is no object.

He's got time and a landing place,
And an Air Force crew and Secret Service.
Man, a limo drives him to the place.
If someone brings up the cost, forget it.

The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)
I said
The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)

Fly the world around
Guess who's on the town
You'll spread the word around

In Paris they'll be dressed to kill;
Taxpayers will foot the bill.
The drink will flow -- Michelle, don't spill!
And if the press corps should complain, better not let them.

Well, Fox News and the talkshows blasting them for spending wrongs.
His speech from the teleprompter's a little long.
Won't be long 'til Twenty-ten,
Better enjoy while he still can.

The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)
Fly the world around
The Prez is on the town
(Obama's on the town)

Obama's on the town again
The budget is in free-fall
Obama's on the town again
