Here's a LINK to with all the facts about this video including the cast:

* Neil Patrick Harris as Very Smart Fellow
* California Gays and The People That Love Them include Margaret Cho, Andy Richter and Maya Rudolph
* Proposition 8'ers and the People That Follow Them include:

* Allison Janney as Prop 8 Leader's Number 1 Wife
* Kathy Najimy as Prop 8 Leader's Number 2 Wife
* Rashida Jones, Lake Bell, and Sarah Chalke as Scary Catholic School Girls From Hell

And here's my best shot at the lyrics. I don't know how the words are spaced or formatted or attributed to the various actors, but anyways...:

It's a brand-new, bright Obama day.
What a time to be black, a girl, or gay.
No nothing could go wrong, so join us in this song
of happy days for the gays.
Nothing can go wrong.

Look, nobody's watching.
It's time to spread some hate
and put it in the constitution.

Now? How?

Proposition 8

Proposition 8, Great!

People, listen to our plea.
They'll teach kids about sodomy!


That wasn't right. That's a lie.

But it works so we don't care.

Now you wish we'd all shut up.

But make our clothes and fix our hair.

And our love's not a sin.

Well the bible says it's so.

Well the bible says a lot of things, you know?

Jesus Christ!

Hey, how's it going?

Jesus, doesn't the bible say these people are an abomination.


Yeah, but you know it says the exact same thing about this shrimp cocktail.

Mmm... shrimp cocktail

Leviticus said shellfish is an abomination.


What else does the bible say Jesus?

The bible says a lot of interesting things
like... you... can...
stomp your wife or sell your daughter into slavery.

Well, we ignore those verses.

Well then friend it seems to me
you pick and choose

We pick and choose

Well please choose love instead of hate.
Besides your nation was built on the separation of church and state.

See you later sinners!

Bye Jesus
Good bye Jesus
Good bye Jesus
I love you Jesus

You know, here's another thought to wrap things up.

Oh... every... time a gay or lesbian finds love at the parade,
there's money to be made
He's right!

times two grooms. They paint that wedding hall, and lavender's the shade.
There's money to be made.

He has a point!

Think of all of the carriages and four white horses.
There's millions lost from all your disapproving.

Well, that's not good

Think of all the lawyers for all the gay divorces.
Think of the tattoo removing.

We get it now.
We've been such fools.

I... can... see...
America's calling me
Yes, gay marriages will save the economy!
