Vanity - Obama's Black Diamond Bay Take-Off

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 there’s a movie trailer we could use.

Didn’t seem like much to worry ‘bout

So I turned it off and went and did another line.

Seems like every time you turn around

There’s another dishonest tale I gotta design.

And there’s really nothing anyone will say,

‘Cause the media always makes it OK

For me to lie anyway.


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: libya; obama; parody; song; vanity
Enjoy.

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.
