The night before election

T'was the night 'fore election
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
'cept the click of a mouse.

The yard signs displayed
all the candidates there
To air the debate
in our public square.

The children all sleeping
'cause it's 3 a.m.
Just their parents are worried
'bout election mayhem

With Papa - oh, the maverick
and his sidekick, Ms. Wink
Thinking of their election
Could drive you to drink

But then, on TV, there arose such a clatter
I sprung from my LazyBoy to see ... what's the matter?
And what to my wandering eye should appear?
It's Barack and Michelle and their children, so dear

We're a family, they said, just like you and yours
and lifting you up is all in our plan
So sleep tight and have faith
then go vote -- Yes We Can.
