These are political song parodies that are presented as humor. If you are the subject of one of these parodies and are offended...well, that's just too bad. Get over it.
If you don't know -- or can't remember -- the melody, click on the speaker icon to hear a .midi version of the song. (Thanks to Gary's Midi Pages for most of the soundfiles.)
