Chicago Young Republicans Parody "Call Me Maybe"

chicagoyoungrepublicans_callmemaybe.jpgThe Chicago Young Republicans have made "The CYRs Are Calling, Baby," a parody video of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" to get local folks to volunteer to make campaign calls for Mitt Romney.

Beyond the free pizza and beer mentioned in the video, the CYRs are holding contests for phone bank volunteers, who can win such prizes as an iPad, sports tickets and restaurant gift cards for meeting call goals.

Here are the lyrics:

I cast my vote in the booth,
Hoping and praying for truth
But Obama took it all
And now he's in my way

I'd trade my soul for a job,
Pennies and dimes all I got
I never asked for all this
And now he's in my way

Small business folding
Private sector isn't growing
Give me back my country
Because we deserve victory

Hey, if you're like me,
And going crazy,
The CYRs
We're calling, baby

It's hard to be right,
In Chicago,
But we're all here
for a better tomorrow!

Hey, if you're like me,
And going crazy,
The CYRs
We're calling, baby

Just think how happy
No more balling
Obama lost
Cuz you went calling

Come to the office to call
It will take no time at all
We've got the tools that you need
So we can win this time

Obama lied to us all
Our country's worse overall
You're not alone if you feel
That he is in our way

Small business folding
Private sector isn't growing
Give me back my country
Because we deserve victory

Hey, if you're like me,
And going crazy,
The CYRs
We're calling, baby

It's hard to be right,
In Chicago,
But we're all here
for a better tomorrow!

Hey, if you're like me,
And going crazy,
The CYRs
We're calling, baby

We'll give you pizza
Plus some free beer
Why are you waiting?
Just get yourself here

Before you start to give up
We need you so bad
We need you so bad
We need you so, so bad
Before you start to give up
We need you so bad
And you should know that
We need you so, so bad

It's hard to be right,
In Chicago,
But we're all here
for a better tomorrow!

Hey, if you're like me,
And going crazy,
The CYRs
We're calling, baby

We'll give you pizza
Plus some free beer
Why are you waiting?
Just get yourself here

Before you start to give up
We need you so bad
We need you so bad
We need you so, so bad
Before you start to give up
We need you so bad
And you should know that

So let's make phone calls!
