Yep. That there is Herman Cain, the man currently leading in the polls for the Republican nomination for President. President of the United States. The whole country. And yes, he is wearing choir robes and singing a pizza-centric version of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” And this man might soon be given the nuclear launch codes.
To be fair, it’s not like this was just for fun. Cain’s big calling card is that he was the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. Though we think his calling card ought to be that velvety vibrato. But it’s clear that Cain is willing to do what it takes to get the job done, whether that be withdrawing the troops from Iraq or hocking pizzas to busy moms.
Here are some of the brilliantly reworked lyrics:
Imagine there’s no pizza
I couldn’t if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It’s frightening and it’s sad
It’s only fitting a lyricist that good should be given the keys to America’s military. Our fondest hope is that Michelle Bachman comes out with a 20-year-old cover version of the “Meow Mix” theme song.
