“RUNNIN’ ON EMPTY” (in 2012)
(music by Jackson Browne)

Lookin’ out at the road rushin’ under my wheels
Lookin’ back at the last three years and at all my shady deals,
In 85 I was 24 organizing acorns in Chicago-South
I got no record to run on now, I’m just runnin’ my mouth…

Chorus:
Runnin’ on, Runnin’ On Empty
Runnin’ on, without my teleprompter I’m runnin’ blind…
Runnin’ on, runnin’ guns into Mexico and Eric Holder might do time…

“Folks” gotta do what they can just to get by from day to day
Cause I’m tryin’ hard to confuse them and increase their dependence and decay,
In 05 I was 44 and voting “present” was my game
I can’t milk “hope & change” no more, all I got is “cope & blame”…

Runnin’ on, Runnin’ On Empty (in 2012)
Runnin’ on, without my teleprompter I’m runnin’ blind…
Runnin’ on, givin’ into Islam watch me lead from behind…

Everyone I snow, everywhere I poll
My people need more freebies to believe,
I don’t care about anyone but me.
If it takes two terms, then I’ll wait my turn
If I can redistribute all your wealth before I leave…

Lookin’ out at the road rushin’ under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all your Constitution I’m gonna repeal,
I look around for my friends like Bill Ayers & Reverend Wright to pull me through
Better not question my record & past, or CNN will demonize you.

repeat Chorus…

More stimulus really tempts me
You know the way I can rob you all blind,
I’d love to stick around
But my tee-times runnin’ behind…

repeat Chorus until NOV 2012…
