    Gonna lay it on the table
    You better keep your business clean
    Gonna lay it on the table
    You better keep your business clean
    Yes there won't be Harps and Angels coming for you
    It'll be trombones, kettle drums
    Pitchforks and tambourines

    And when I awoke
    I was alone
    This bird had flown
    Words I don't know

    The Beatles
    "Norwegian Wood"
    Rubber Soul re-tasked by TSA who actually
    didn't know the words. When Mike and I would do this song, it was always a struggle not to sing TSA's lyric...

    From The Onion:

    Obama Debuts Annoying Catchphrase

    WASHINGTON—In an unexpected turn of events that even his most ardent supporters are calling extremely ill-advised, President Obama, known for his simple yet stirring slogan "Yes we can," debuted a new, extremely annoying catchphrase Monday during an address on proposed economic policy reform, saying, "It is time for America to move forward, not backward—and in conclusion, hot diggity ding dang!" The new catchphrase, White House officials announced, will replace the former slogan as the focal point of the president's public image effective immediately, and will be implemented in all appearances, official correspondence, and executive paperwork from now until at least mid-2012. Publicity materials featuring the wince-inducing phrase—and picturing Obama smiling wildly and giving a double thumbs-up to the camera—were distributed this week to thousands of media outlets. "We have no idea why he's chosen to do this," said former Obama supporter Kyle Hammersley. "It's unbelievably irritating." "Hot diggitty ding dang" was reportedly selected by Obama and his advisers from a final list of potential taglines that also included "Hanker down—soup's on!" "That's what the doctor told me!" and "Mama mia, where's-a mah pizza?!"

    There's a little joke
    I just made up
    How many of me would it take to screw up your life?
    One to settle down
    One to turn you around
    Now I'm sober in my yard
    I would say you had to be there
    Now I regret that you're still there

    And if California slides into the ocean
    Like the mystics and statistics say it will
    I predict this hotel will be standing until I pay my bill
