  • A sing along with the Democratic candidates

    Posted by Ralf Goergens on April 21st, 2008 (All posts by )

    For some reason, Obama’s remark about bitter small-town people clinging to their guns and their religion made me think about this song:

    She said fine and in thirty seconds time she said, I want to live like common people
    I want to do whatever common people do, I want to sleep with common people
    I want to sleep with common people like you.

    Sing along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you thru’
    Laugh along with the common people
    Laugh along even though they’re laughing at you and the stupid things that you do.

    Oh, and I also have one for Hillary:

    Didn’t take too long fore I found out
    What people mean by down and out.
    Spent my money, took my car,
    Started tellin her friends she wants to be a star.
    I dont know but I been told
    A big legged woman ain’t got no soul.

      Ralf, excellent picks. For “Common People”, it has to be the Shatner version.

    2. David Fleck Says:

      With Joe Jackson, no less.

      Hey, wait; Isn’t that last lyric a bit misbiglegynistic?
