‘Whoa-oh-Obama, bam-a-lam’

Filmed Aug. 9, 2008, by the ever-ingenious Du-Tels, a.k.a. Peter Stampfel and Gary Lucas, an Obama ode sung to the tune of “Black Betty”:

Obama has a vision, bam-a-lam
Obama has a dream, bam-a-lam
His shit don’t stink, bam-a-lam
We’re on his team, bam-a-lam

I don’t imagine the Obama people will pick it up, but if they did this would be the greatest campaign theme since “Ike for President” in 1952.
