The Big Obama Mountain

Updated on December 18, 2009

The Great Uniter!

With apologies to Burl Ives

DATELINE: Nov. 6, 2008 ST JOHN'S, Antigua - Antigua's prime minister wants to rename the island's highest mountain peak "Mount Obama" in honor of the U.S. president-elect. "Boggy Peak," as it is currently known, soars more than 1,300 feet over the island's southern point and serves as a transmission site for broadcast and telecommunication providers. It also is a popular hiking spot. Political analyst Avel Grant says the name change could draw more tourists to the island.

So, I wrote this song (with recent revisions) to the tune of "Big Rock Candy Mountain"

The Big Obama Mountain

by Tom King

1. Election Day as the sun went down and the stadium was lighted
The mobs all shout with joy and tears, interviewees were delighted
Oh I never thought I'd see this day, on Barak Hussein I'm countin'
I know I won't have to work no more in the Big Obama Mountain


In the Big Obama Mountain it's a land that's fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes and you party every night
Oh the jingling of the keys in the Cadillac Trees and the mortgage bailout fountain
Where solar power blinks and my carbon footprint shrinks in the Big Obama Mountain

2. In the Big Obama Mountain security is on its way!
Dissenters wear 'lectronic tags and we'll take their guns away
The radio waves are full of truth, Rush Limbaugh had to go
Oh, I'm bound to do what the party says to
When they tell you what kinda job to do in the Big Obama Mountain


3. In the Big Obama Mountain you don't have to change your socks
Well that's okay since you can buy none cause they snapped shut Wal-Marts locks
The bossmen have to tip their hats since the unions took command.
Now our pay is up and and we can't be fired
But there ain't no job so we can't get hired, in the Big Obama Mountain


4. In the Big Obama Mountain the jails are not for you
But they keep the cells for those that cling to guns and prayer too
There ain't no Gideon's Bibles, cause we're all religion free
Oh, I'm a goin' to stay where you sleep all day,
Where there's love and peace n' our health care's paid in the Big Obama Mountains

5. In the Big Obama Mountain all Marx's dreams came true
It's a paradise for workers cause everyone's as poor as you
Our leaders live in mansions and there ain't no middle class
Oh the secret police really keep the peace,
And we can't drive cars and we don't eat meat in the Big Obama Mountains

6. In the Big Obama Mountain, nations aren't afraid of us
Cause the U.S. Military, Got tossed under the bus.
The president can't stop bowing,to all the emperors and kings.
He'll apologize when they criticize 
Make friends of tyrants and swallow lies in the Big Obama Mountains


We'll be happy and gay no more election days in the Big Obama Mountain!
