I Wanna Be Obama’d: Revolutionary Cover of Ramones’ Lyrics

May 6, 2010

The night of the 2008 Election, I wrote some new lyrics to the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated”. With Gov. Palin throwing her hat into the right for 2012, I rewrote those lyrics yet again and performed them tonight at a Rockeroke (Live Karaoke) at Snoqualamie Casino. You can see the video here.

Twenty Twenty Twenty-Four hours ago/
I finally got Obama’d./
I said I’m sorry, but I didn’t know,/
I’d wanna be Obama’d./

So get me to the airport,/
put me on a plane./
Hurry hurry hurry!/
I voted for McCain!/
They want my bank account,/
my wallet and my brain oh oh oh oh oh ooh!

I finally got Obama’d./
I said I’m sorry, but I didn’t know,/

The Democrats have spoken;/
They’re live on SNL./
Republicans are choking;/
the Country’s gone to hell!/
Can he fix what’s broken?/
We’ll have to ask Michelle oh oh oh oh oh ooh!/

but I’m so hot for Pa-lin./
I wanted John McCain/
but Barack is going in oh oh oh oh oh ooh!
