Parody Video – Obama That I Used To Know – With Lyrics

Parody of “Somebody That I Used To Know” rewritten from the view of young, disappointed, former Obama enthusiasts.


Former Obama supporters are coming to terms with the disappointing reality of his first term as president.

This parody video illustrates a position of disappointment held by some of Obama’s most energetic backers from 2008. 

It seems that the best we can probably “hope” for is that many of those voters stay home this time around and we see a “change” after November… 

 

LYRICS

Now and then I think of that election day, November

When you won I felt so happy I could die

Chugged a fifth, paraded in the street

And I thanked God that Palin wasn’t Veep

It felt like change and it’s a hope I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of message

Like this is change we can believe in,

yes we can But college ended, had to pay my rent

At least you’re the first gay president

But the change I got was that I moved in with my mother

Because you won and then you cut me off

Now your speeches never soar as high as unemployment

You took Obamacare so far

But you left me like a dog strapped on Romney’s car

Even the shirt that was on my back

Is owned by China or being arbitraged by Goldman Sachs

Just send in a Predator Drone ‘Cause now you’re not Obama that I used to know

Now you’re not Obama that I used to know Now I need Obama that I used to know

Sometimes I think that Peace Prize winners shouldn’t have a kill list

But you dumped Bin Laden in the sea so maybe it’s all good

Said you’d rouse my economy

Your big package didn’t stimulate me

Still my American Idol, though When you sang,

“I’m so in love with you”…Obama that I used to know

But you won and then you cut me off

Made out like you’d close Guantanamo and we got nothing

Relocation shouldn’t be that hard

Just strap the prisoners in on top of Romney’s car

No, I don’t need you to legalize

Just keep the feds away from folks like you when you were younger

There’s nothing that you didn’t toke

But now that’s just Obama that I used to know

Obama That I used to know Obama That I used to know Obama That I used to know

In 2012 I need Obama that I used to know
