image for 'Light My Fire' released by The Doors with Barack Obama as the singer 'Say a prayer for the ridiculous Presidents ... the unwanted Presidents ...'

As a tribute to arguably the greatest American rock band of all time, The Doors, the three remaining living members of that band asked President Barack Obama to be their guest singer on 'Light My Fire'.

And he agreed, but like many front men in bands he insisted on changing the words to his own version of them. And here they are:

'You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
Troop levels can go no higher

I'm Obama, I'm a liar
I'm Obama, I'm a liar
Still setting Iraq on fire

The time to hesitate is now
My waffle sinks US in the mire
Yank freedoms are going down
Yanks send their tax to Israel's fliers

I'm Obama, I'm a liar
I'm Obama, I'm a liar
Still setting Iraq on fire
Yeah

[Long droning speech about minority rights, skin color, and everything I can go on about except for anything that actually helps the citizens of the USA;

Another long droning speech that sounds dramatic and powerful but doesn't mean anything or have any substance to it at all]

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
Troop levels can go no higher

I'm Obama, I'm a liar
I'm Obama, I'm a liar
Still setting Iraq on fire

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I were to say to you
Troop levels can go no higher

I'm Obama, I'm a liar
I'm Obama, I'm a liar
Still setting Iraq on fire
Still setting Iraq on fire
Still a bullshitting - liar
