There's No One as Irish as Barack O'bama!

My friend Chris sent this YouTube clip of a song written about President-Elect Barack Obama and it is just brilliant. In fact, I almost assure you that you'll be singing along by the time they get to the last chorus!!
No wonder the entire world is excited about Obama's Presidency... it seems his ancestry touches all corners.



Here's the words so you can follow along:

No one as Irish as Barack OBama

O'Leary, O'Reilly, O'Hare and O'Hara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

You don't believe me, I hear you say
But Barack's as Irish, as was JFK
His granddaddy's daddy came from Moneygall
A small Irish village, well known to you all

Toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a lama
There's no one as Irish As Barack O'Bama

He's as Irish as bacon and cabbage and stew
He's Hawaiian he's Kenyan American too
He’s in the white house, He took his chance
Now let’s see Barack do Riverdance

Toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a lama
There's no one as Irish As Barack O'Bama

From Kerry and cork to old Donegal
Let’s hear it for Barack from old moneygall
From the lakes if Killarney to old Connemara
There’s no one as Irish as Barack O’Bama

O'Leary, O'Reilly, O'Hare and O'Hara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama
From the old blarney stone to the great hill of Tara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

2008 the white house is green,
their cheering in Mayo and in Skibereen.
The Irish in Kenya, and in Yokahama,
Are cheering for President Barack O’Bama

O'Leary, O'Reilly, O'Hare and O'Hara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

The Hockey Moms gone, and so is McCain
They are cheering in Texas and in Borrisokane,
In Moneygall town, the greatest of drama,
for our Famous president Barack o Bama

Toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a loo, toor a lama
There's no one as Irish As Barack O'Bama

The great Stephen Neill, a great man of God,
He proved that Barack was from the Auld Sod
They came by bus and they came by car,
to celebrate Barack in Ollie Hayes’s Bar

O'Leary, O'Reilly, O'Hare and O'Hara
There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

LMAO! And I thought it was Obama, not O'bama! I hope he does great and everyone still wants to claim him. Dallas gets a new resident in a few days. I'll have to read about Bush sightings every day. Whoopee! Unfortunately the press here claims everyone with Texas ties. Not so bad when it's the US Airways pilot, but not always so great when it's a politician!

That is a catchy tune. We have Obama on our news all the time at the moment with reports of his train ride. Honestly all this stuff must cost a fortune. I've been muttering about the waste of money when so many people are struggling. Grumpy? Just a little!

Shelley - I gotta agree. The entire election (including 2-3 years of lead up!) is incredibly, shamefully costly. Makes me nauseous.

Hey - my word verification was luverant LOL!!

Crap, I'm at work and can't listen to this right now. First thing when I get home...

Julia Smith said...

I want to see Obama do Riverdance! Actually, I got down with the First Family as they got down to Stevie Wonder. Thank God there's a groovy guy in the White House at last.

He's got a lot to live up to, vis a vis people's expectations.

Still you can't argue with history in the making. I'll be watching Tuesday for sure.
