A super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton, called Stand With Hillary, has created a song that is sure to surpass Taylor Swift on the Billboard Top 100.

Just watch:

The song, which went online in November, was written by Miguel Orozco, a media producer who was also behind this much catchier Reggaeton tune about Barack Obama in 2008. (The chorus of that one: "¿Cómo se dice? ¿Cómo se llama? Obama, Obama!")

We at National Journal take such super-PAC media campaigns very seriously. And thus, we decided to provide you, dear reader, with a fully annotated version of the "Stand With Hillary" lyrics.

Lookin' back in time, learnin' hindsight's always rightWe came together in a way [also sounds like he's saying "in no way"]A defining moment we all can celebrate [with hamburgers and French fries!]And now it's 2016 [not really, no] and this time I'm a thinkin'Guys put your boots on, and let's smash this ceiling!

VERSE 2:

Don't matter if you're livin' across this great land in a red or blue state'Cuz our American Dream is at stakeAnd there's some Hard Choices that need to be made [Your royalty check from Simon & Schuster is in the mail.]We're needing a leader who is tough and ready [Unnecessary use of the present continuous tense]Who's got visionFor me it's HillaryAnd that's my final decision!

CHORUS:

Surely, "Stand With Hillary" will go down in the pantheon of such amateur campaign songs as "Cocoa Tea's Barack Obama Reggae Song," "Ron Paul Revolution" and "Hillary 4U&Me". GRAMMY Awards voting members, call your office!
