The Lyrics

As someone who expected more time to hear from Andrew Yang, I tend to hear quite alot when it comes to overlapping policies and interests with Bernie Sanders. I do discourage that notion, but there are different ways to be considered a progressive candidate. At the time of posting this, there are 40 regular Americans who are running for Congress/Senate on a UBI platform. The ideas surpass the messenger, but we have still have to see the success. Anyways, here is a song that I wrote lamenting the loss of Yang from the democratic primary.
(Andrew Yang)
Bernie, look at my life
I have walked in your shoes
Bernie, look at my life
I have walked in your shoes

(Verse 1)
Bernie, look at my life
Forty-five, with a lot to strive
Talking ‘bout humanity
And where our future stands

Robots, bring the cuts
UBI I’ve got the guts
Then when folks connect the dots
Lives are in their hands

(Chorus)
Bernie, take a look at my life
I walked in your shoes
The party doesn’t like us
When we share our views*
But we’re both smart enough
To understand this ruse

(Verse 2)
Data rights, not just sound bites
We accept, though not adept
May not mean that much to you
To know technology

You’ve been on front lines
Bringing up the greedy crimes
We want to change those lines
So our lives are free

(Chorus)

(Andrew Yang)
Bernie, look at my life
I have walked in your shoes
Bernie, look at my life
I have walked in your shoes
* = If you thought I would rhyme shoes with lose on one of these lines, it didn't feel right. I would think that both have won through inspiration of others to be more politically engaged. That is the kind of framework that should be expected of leaders.
