The Lyrics

The US President's handlers must have used TOS to inspire him for a recent speech to the Congressional Black Caucus. He promised to "press on" and urged them to "take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching boots; we have work to do." He doesn't want them to walk alone, I guess.
When you talk, spew reform!
Keep your chin up high
And don't be afraid to be stark.
To the end of your term,
Be emboldened, try
To defeat willful wrong, leave your mark.

Press on through headwinds,
Press on through the strain,
Though it seems your gloss has flown.
Press on, press on with hope in your change;
Stand cool, never balk or drone.
Your face they'll carve in stone.
The only previous parody of TOS gave pre-speech advice to George W. Bush.

Good subbing and satire...I'm not quite off the block with Barack, but hope something is accomplished soon.

AFW: Thanks; I was impressed with the last part of his speech, when he abandoned the teleprompter and spoke directly, showing who he is (not who I want).
A better line 5 is "Dare and boldly try" to match TOS's sounds.
