House Democrats recently sought to build off President Barack Obama's now-famous singing of a line from Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" by recording their own single, a longer parody of the song meant to express their appreciation for the president. The lawmakers recorded the Obama-based rendition and gave him a CD copy of it at the annual Democratic retreat in Maryland last month.

There's no audio yet (thankfully?), but here are the lyrics, recently provided to Politico.

"We're ... We're so in love with you ...

We're going to help you make it through ...

By turning the red states blue ...

You make us feel so darn proud ...

We want to shout it out loud ...

Let's bring the country together ...

Supporting you whether ... whether times are good or bad ... happy or sad

Let's bring the country together ...

Supporting you whether ... whether times are good or bad ... happy or sad

Let's ... Let's stay together."

Lyrics by Rep. John B. Larson (D-Conn.) and Terisa Griffin, with "apologies to Al Green."
