_TeleprompT Me, Baby_

Hat tip to absentee’s blog of the same name which when combined with that bloody Swiffer commercial that has been overplaying Human League’s _Don’t You Want Me_, swished around in my brain and out came the following parody:


(Parody of Human League, _Don’t You Want Me_)

You were working as a Senator on Capitol Hill
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up, and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now four years later on you’ve got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don’t forget it’s me who put you where you are now
And I just want to hear from you

Tel-, TeleprompT me
You know I can’t believe it when you say that they can see me
Tel-, TeleprompT me
You know I don’t believe you when you say that you don’t need me
It’s much too late to find
That you can speak your mind
You’d better just read me or we will both be sorry

TeleprompT me baby, TeleprompT me – oh
TeleprompT me baby, TeleprompT me – oh

I was working as a Senator on Capitol Hill
That much is true
But even then I knew I’d win the Presidency
Either with or without you
The four years we have had have been such good times
I still need you
But now I wonder if I can just speak on my own
I guess it’s just what I should do

TeleprompT me baby, TeleprompT me – oh
TeleprompT me baby, TeleprompT me – oh


Now all we need to do is find some people with musical and singing skills and we could record this and send it to Dr. Demento as well as any conservative radio program that would air it.
