“Chains” We Can Believe In

Here’s a little parody about Obama’s broken promises and failed policies we came up with set to the music from Poison’s “Something to believe in.”

Lyrics

Well I see him on the TV
Preachin’ bout the promised land
He tells me to believe what he has to say
And steals the money from my hand.

Some folks still believe him
But I can’t understand why

One long year of failed policies
And longer lines of the unemployed
Who thought they’d voted to bring jobs back
But learned he was only making noise

His stimulus bill spent all our cash
Cap & Trade made unemployment spike
Harry Reid held votes on Obamacare
Way on up into the night.

People back home, they cried out
“Stop this isn’t what we want”

He gave us chains we can believe in
Chains that bind our souls
Chains we can believe in
Chains that bind forevermore.

He promised us transparency
We’d see everything and more
But he got in the White House
And did everything behind closed doors.

He promised he’d cooperate
He’d change the way things are done
But he got off the train in DC
And continued as a partisan

He said he’d have no lobbyists
And then he brought them in

He gave us chains we can believe in
Chains that bind our souls
Chains we can believe in
Chains that bind forevermore.

Sometimes I wish we didn’t know now
The things we didn’t know then

I drive by empty homes on my street
Homes that were foreclosed on
He promised he would save them
But now the neighbors are gone.

But the CEOs on Wall Street
Got their bonuses again this year
And the poor guy who built their houses
He can’t afford to even dry his tears

And it just makes me wonder
How he chooses who loses and wins

He gave us chains we can believe in
Chains that bind our souls
Chains we can believe in
Chains that bind forevermore.

He’s taken away the high road
And now we’re only left the low

Sometimes I wish I didn’t know now
The things I didn’t then

He gave us chains we can believe in.
