In '08 they hand off the ship of state,
Just as the old tub is sinking.
Captain Obama called hands on deck,'Cause the Dow did a big belly-flop,
Republicans stood in their fiscal puddle,
And never would go get a mop.
We're now in the Straits of Obstruction,
Where compromise seems to have drowned,
Will they scuttle our whole damn Ship of State,
To make sure the Captain goes down?
