Parody Lyrics by Marcy Shaffer

Arranged by Greg Hilfman

CLINTON:
WELL, I'VE HAD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE.
'TIL NOW I ALWAYS BREEZED MY WAY RIGHT THROUGH.
AND IT'S TRUE. 
THAT I GREW.
'CAUSE OF TUSSLING WITH YOU.
 
OBAMA:
I TOO HAVE HAD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE.
WITH ALL THAT MUSCLING FROM YOU.
 
CLINTON:
STRAIGHT TALK EXPRESS I CAN DEFEAT.
BARACK, OH, YES, I RAN TO MEET
DESTINY.
 
OBAMA:
AND I'M CONVINCED I CANNOT FAIL.
LIKE EACH TIME HARVARD PLAYS AT YALE.
HILLARY.
 
CLINTON:
MY INNUENDOS ON THE RISE.
 
OBAMA:
MY SPINNERS WISER TO DEVISE
STRATEGY.
 
BOTH:
SO FORGET WHAT'S DONE ON NEWS.
YOU CAN BET NO ONE WILL LOSE
GRACEFULLY.
 
OBAMA:
YOU'VE MISSPOKEN.
 
CLINTON:
YOU HAVE BEEN PROVOKIN'.
 
BOTH:
IT IS MASTERSTROKIN'!
SEE HOW WE RUN!
 
REALLY:
I'VE HAD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE.
'TIL NOW I ALWAYS BREEZED MY WAY RIGHT THROUGH.
AND IT'S TRUE. 
THAT I GREW.
'CAUSE OF HUSTLING FROM YOU.
 
CLINTON:
OH, THOSE CALLS AT 3 A.M.
HAVE A STRATAGEM FOR THEM?  
I'D LIKE TO HEAR.
 
OBAMA:
ARE YOU AWAKE THEN FROM CONCERNS
WHERE THOSE STACKS OF TAX RETURNS 
MIGHT STEER?
 
CLINTON:
HAH!
WHEN THOSE DELEGATES CONVENE.
I CAN TELL, I'LL BE QUEEN OF THE YEAR.
BUT REMEMBER:
 
YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME 
THAT IT COULD BE NOT ME.
 
OBAMA:
HOW FAR YOU HAVE BROUGHT ME!
 
BOTH:
SEE HOW WE RUN!
 
THANK YOU.
I'VE HAD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE.
AND I'LL BE NUMBER 44 BEFORE I'M THROUGH.
WHAT I'LL DO. 
WILL BE NEW.
'CAUSE OF TUSSLING WITH YOU.
 
YES, I'VE HAD THE FIGHT OF MY LIFE.
AND MAYBE TO MY DEBUT INTERVIEW.
I WILL COO.
THAT I FLEW.
'CAUSE OF TUSSLING, YES,
TUSSLING WITH YOU.
