With apologies to the genius of Bob Dylan, I offer an Obama parody of the last verse of one of Dylan's catchiest tunes - Black Diamond Bay:
I was chilling in the West Wing when
Mama Crowley came on CNN
With sub-optimal news.
Seems that terrorists in Libya led
To Stevens and three others dead,
But theres a movie trailer we could use.
Didnt seem like much to worry bout
So I turned it off and went and did another line.
Seems like every time you turn around
Theres another dishonest tale I gotta design.
And theres really nothing anyone will say,
Cause the media always makes it OK
For me to lie anyway.
Other verses or versions, or other Dylan song parodies related to this fool in the White Hut, are most welcome.
That was and is a great Dylan creation, but I like what you’ve done with it.
Brilliant. I’ve been a huge Dylan fan, and this has always been one of my favorite songs. I was a pianist and liberal arts major, and this song... one of his best. I’ve owned so much of his music, but this song is probably my first choice to listen to. I don’t claim to have taste, but I love it.
