Story Behind The Song
This is a kind of protest song I guess. It's funny to me what happened to a lot of people who spent a load of time protesting "The Man", now that they finally became "The Man". Now I'm the radical, coulter-culture, out-there modern hippy singing my protest song. As Pete said, "meet the new boss, same as the old boss".
A recent Harvard Grad tries to pick up a girl at a bar, but due to the Obama Economy that he himself supported, he finds himself living with his mom which doesn't go over too well with his successful conservative new friend.

WELL IT ALL HAPPENED IN 2008 I'D VOTED FOR OBAMA I WAS FEELING GREAT
I WAS FRESH OUT OF SCHOOL HARVARD BUSINESS DEGREE HUNDREDS OF JOBS WERE JUST WAITING FOR ME
FAST FORWARD TO A BAR LAST SATURDAY NIGHT I WAS WITH THIS GIRL BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM RIGHT
SHE WORE A ROMNEY SHIRT BUT IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK I JUST HAD NO MONEY TO PAY FOR MY DRINK
YOU SEE SINCE THE DAYS OF HOPE AND CHANGE I'VE GOT NONE IN MY POCKET AND IT MIGHT SEEM STRANGE
MY JOB IS WAITING IN A WELFARE LINE OBAMA'S HOPE CAME TRUE I'M STILL WAITING FOR MINE
WELL I LOOKED FOR THE EXIT BUT TO MY SURPRISE SHE PICKED UP THE BILL AND LOOKED IN MY EYES
"THIS ONE'S ON ME, CAN YOU DRIVE ME HOME"? I WAS SO STUNNED I FORGOT MY OBAMA PHONE
I PAUSED AS WE LEFT WITH A CHRIS MATHEWS THRILL JUST TO REMEMBER THE LOOK OF A TEN DOLLAR BILL
WE GOT ON MY MOPED BUT SHE WASN'T IMPRESSED I GUESS THE HANDLEBARS KINDA MESSED UP HER DRESS
WELL WE GOT TO MY HOUSE AND I CREPT IN WITH FEAR "WHAT'S THE MATTER?" SHE SAID "DON'T YOU REALLY LIVE HERE"?
"WELL THE BEDROOM UPSTAIRS MY MOM LET ME KEEP, BUT THIS IS HER HOUSE AND I THINK SHE'S ASLEEP".
WELL SHE RAN OUT THE DOOR AND ALL I COULD SAY WAS "AT LEAST CAN I SEND YOU MY RESUME?"
I SLUNK TO MY ROOM AND I STARED AT THE CEILING AND WONDERED IF OBAMA KNEW HOW I WAS FEELING...
GOLF WITH J-ZEE, A PRIVATE CHEF AND A JET, CHAMPAIGN, BEYONCÉ' NO IM NOT FINISHED YET...
A YACHT AT THE VINEYARD PRIVATE CLUB FOR HIS HEALTH AND HE STILL WANTS TO TAKE AND REDISTRIBUTE MY WEALTH
IT WAS AT THAT VERY MOMENT I KNEW I'D BEEN HAD AND THE TRUTH OF IT ALL MADE ME ANGRY NOT SAD
THIS HOPE AND CHANGE WAS A BUNCH OF BALONEY THE ONLY ONES LIVING BETTER ARE MICHELE AND HIS CRONIES
THE TERRORISTS STILL HATE US THEY'VE GOT PLENTY IN STORE WERE TEN TRILLION IN DEBT AND HE'S BORROWING MORE
THINK FOR A SECOND WHAT'S HE DONE FOR YOU EXCEPT GIVE YA EYE CANDY WHEN YOUR WATCHING THE VIEW
SO IF YOU FIND YOURSELF VOTING THIS TIME AROUND TAKE HEED OF MY WARNING FROM WHAT I HAVE FOUND
IF YOU VOTE FOR OBAMA AND IT'S THE POINT OF MY SONG
YOU'LL GO HOME BY YOURSELF AND MOVE IN WITH YOUR MOM
