Halli Casser-Jayne is the co-host of The Halli and MoJoe Show on BlogTalkRadio dot com and the author of A Year in My Pajamas with President Obama, The Politics of Strange Bedfellows, which takes a provocative, fun, thoughtful look at Election 2008 through the creative eyes of an author with a sassy and distinctive voice. There are many President Obama books, but none quite like this one! Look for her forthcoming novel, Scout Finch's Diary scheduled for an October 2011 release.

He has wiled away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
His head he’s a scratchin' while his thoughts were busy hatchin'
If Obama only had a brain.

He’d unravel every riddle
For every individ’le
In trouble or in pain.

With the thoughts he’d be thinkin'
He might have become another Lincoln
If Obama only had a brain.

Oh, he could tell you why
The ocean’s near the shore
He can think of things he’d never thunk before
And then he’d sit and think some more.

He would not be just a nothin’
His head all full of stuffin’
His heart all full of pain.
He would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry.

If he only had a brain.

When a man's an empty kettle
He should be on his mettle
And yet he's torn apart
Just because he's presumin'
That he could be a human
If he only had a heart.

Picture him on balcony
Above a voice sings low
Wherefore art thou, brainy Clinton?
Help, I hear a beat, how sweet!

Just to register emotion, morality and devotion
And really feel the part,
He could stay young and chipper
Leave a reputation like The Gipper
If he only had a heart.

Yeh, it's sad, believe me, Missy,
When you're born to be a sissy
Without the vim and the verve.

But he coulda shown his prowess,
been a lion not a mou-ess
If he only had the nerve.

But I'm afraid there's no denyin'
He's just a dandelion
A fate he much deserves.

He coulda been brave as a blizzard
Been gentle as a lizard
Been clever as a gizzard
If he only had a brain!
The heart to defend the disenfranchised
The NERVE to fight the whack-a-doo Republican Party!

No brain, no heart, no nerve!

The surrender President Barack Obama, a wizard NOT!
The final straw!
