Parody Written by:

Malcolm Higgins

The Lyrics

they're all white and you are black,
that gives you the inside track,
nothing new, some blacks have been,
great, but not just "african"
show me you have things for us
I'll support youno more fuss..
oh try clarify, Obama

(they sing)

lets go left, and lets unite
vote by skin tone, that's not right..
if he's good, then let's all see
ideas, things we all believe
prove to me it's not all crap
put yourself upon the Map
oh please, say your peace, Obama

Oh Obama, Oh hey brother,
tell us that you love your mother
we'll love you with our heart
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
only you can make this part
only you can break from the start
when you tell us of your vision's ways
will we see intelligence or haze?
hold on Barrick, do what's right,
you'll even get some votes from Right
Oh please, try clarify, Obama
oh please Obama
Oh please, Obama
Oh please, Obama

Hardly your best work, Mal. It's not worthy of you, let alone him.

It's funny in a Tee-Hee way, not a Har-har-Har way, so it's 544 from me. Good effort on the subject from an non-American, so I wouldn't be so harsh, Mike! :)

Not bad Malcolm, but are you starting to go Blue...? :-O

I have really no intention of voting for Obama, but if the Dems put up someone reasonable without a knee jerk reaction and a good platform that I could investigate, then I would consider that person. As for the parody. I really liked it. 5's
