Mr. President, I Can Plug That Hole
Dear Mr. President
I want you to know, this is my country,
And I’ve pledged to do whatever I can,
So that’s why I’m sitting and writing
This letter to our man
I know I can plug that damn hole
Mr. Obama, don’t worry about a thing
Why, I promise I could do it so fast
It would make even BP’s head swing
And I don’t even mind the sacrifice
Because I’ve got so much crap to throw in,
That I’m having a hard time even knowing
Just where I should begin.
I can toss in dirty laundry
I can toss clutter on the shelves
I can even toss in dirty dishes
And a lot more stuff as well
I can throw hubby’s beer cans in
I can throw in hubby’s chair
Heck, I can even throw hubby in,
He’s so full of hot air
I can toss in my over-due bills
I can toss in my poodle skirt
I can toss in that guy at the savings and loan
Since he’s nothing but a jerk!!!
But I have a lot more
If that doesn’t do the trick,
Because I still have all my skinny clothes
That no longer fit
I thought I would keep them
In case I got thin
But just for you, Mr. President
I’m more than willing to toss them in.
I can throw in last years Fruitcake
That should plug it up right quick
Or even all the robes I got for Christmas
There’s a bunch here, I’ll have to admit
Wait, I have an idea
What about this awful pain in my back?
Hey, I’m here to tell you
It’s straight on target to attack!!!
I wonder, would anyone object
If we could get him off his yacht,
If I threw in Tony Hayward?
Hey, now THERE’S a thought.
Now if all this doesn’t work
We can always go to plan B
We can toss in all Republicans
That should bring that hole right to its knees
Oh, all right, maybe that’s not such a good idea
Don’t want to get anyone’s goat,
Besides, they’re all so light weight
They’ll probably just start to float.
But I have lots more ideas
And I have a lot more crap I can toss in
So if you think this can work, Mr. President
Just let me know when I can begin!!!
After all, I want to do my civic duty
And I’ve pledged to do whatever I can!!!
That’s why I’m sending to you
This letter to my man!!!
