OBAMA ANTHEM LYRICS
All hail the messiah
The path to the new socialist motherland
Our savior, our savior
The leader more famous than Lindsay Lohan
Bow down and praise the one
Give him your money and your guns
Give us a country
That makes your wife proud
Lord Barry heal the bitter ones
White and Clinging to faith and to guns
Hope for the change of the hope of the change!
(Soviet National Anthem playing)
GLENN: Wait a minute. Hang on. Wait a minute, hang on. Dan, hold it. Stop the music for a second. That's the old Soviet. That's the motherland theme. That's old news. I mean, this is cutting edge. This is America. What do we do? We sit around on our hands? We use something that's 20, 30 years old? No. We're America! We're the place that can dream and it will become, we're the country that says let's not live in the past, let's live in the future. And what's coming our way, huh? Hope and change, that's what's coming, hope and change. So we've reworked the lyrics of the Soviet National Anthem and it goes something a little like this.

GLENN: Oh, I love that. By the way, an interesting little story on that. We kind of spent some money on, you know, some of the musical elements that we do on this program and we hire we've got actually believe it or not, we've got a couple of composers and some professional musicians that play with us regularly. When this one came around, we couldn't get any we couldn't get any singers. Not a single professional singer would take this job. They were like, oh, yeah, I'll be there. Sure, yeah, I'll do another comedy thing, that's great, until they saw the lyrics. And then each and every single one of them said, oh, I can't oh, no, I don't I can't do that. They none of them would take it. The guy singing that is the father of our composer, Anthony Newitt. He's 70 something years old. What was he, a semi professional or a professional opera singer, something like that? So Anthony calls up his dad. Dad? "What? What?" "I need somebody to sing this song." "What is it?" I don't know if Dad I don't know if I'm assuming Dad's fully there. You know what I mean? Maybe Dad was just like checked out enough he was like, he would read these hate mongering lyrics and not understand them. "So okay, I'll sing them, whatever." Isn't that amazing? Not a single performer would do this. We've had Stu, we've had performers sing all kinds of stuff.
STU: All sorts, all sorts of ridiculous lyrics.
GLENN: Ridiculous, on everything, on absolutely everything. Never in my career have I had people not perform something as professional performers, not perform something because, "Oh, I'm not going to make fun of that." Never.
STU: Sacrilege, Glenn.
GLENN: I know.
STU: You can't insult the Messiah.
GLENN: I know. Dan, do me a favor. Just because it seems to be so insulting to those on the left, let it rip one more time, will you? Comrades!

GLENN: And the more it bothers them, the more I'll play it. Obama Soviet Anthem
