Herman Cain's Campaign Theme Song: Love Potion No. 9

Herman Cain's Theme Song
     CINCINNATI (TDB) -- The original was a rock hit in 1959, and later was a movie starring Sandra Bullock.  Here are some  knock off lyrics mocking Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, whose 9-9-9 tax plan has cast a spell over the GOP:

     They took the budget down to Herman Cain,
  You know, that White House hopeful with the pizza brain
      He's got a scheme to cure that red ink deficit line 
  Sellin' Republicans a cheesy scam called Tax Plan 9-9-9

   They told Herman the economy was in a fix
    Said it got that way 'round 2006
He pulled out his speech and he spoke his money line
   He said, "What you need is, my Tax Plan 9-9-9."

Cain put his head in a cloud, debated out loud and didn't even think
   Made Romney wish Herman would take a turpentine drink
      Meanwhile Perry and Bachman just started to sink              
           They shut their mouths, they blinked their eyes
                          They feared a jinx

The GOP didn't know if it would lose or win
    There was worry it would take it on the chin
9-9-9 taxes everything in sight, even Boehner's tanning light
   And when they did the math down in Karl Rove's slime
It gave the Grand Old Party cold shivers down its spine

   Now we know it taxes everything in our sights
    Even Bristol Palin's dancing tights
   But Herman's still preaching his money line
   Says what we need is, Tax Plan 9-9-9
       Tax Plan 9-9-9
       Tax Plan 9-9-9
        Tax Plan 9-9-9

A version of the real lyrics to the song Love Potion No. 9 is here. Apologies to Leiber/Stoller for the knockoff.
