The Lyrics

I couldn't find a YouTube recording where the chorus sings "Gone, gone, gone" before the song begins, but I'm including this intro anyway. OS (a student singer with chorus): OS (Audra McDonald, who gets one line wrong): OS (Leontyne Price):
‘bam… ‘Bam…’Bam…’Bam…’BAM!

My chance? Gone now!
Ain’t no use of listening
For them calling my name
To the White House chair.

No… No…

Young Obama’s
Come to lead the country,
Whispering beside me,
“You don’t have a prayer.”

No… No…

Ain’t that I mind Senating:
New York keeps me traveling,
Working with Chuck Schumer
For this precious land.
But young Obama’s
Marching all the way past me,
Telling me, “Step back now
Since I’m named The Man!”

Since he’s named The Man!

Since he’s named The Man!


John McCain, sir,
Who is Sarah Palin?
‘Bama works along
For change, as he said.

But I hear the same thing,
Morning, noon, and ev’ning:
I’m a dried-up crone now
Since my chance is dead.


Since my chance is dead!


Oh… Oh…
Oh, oh, oh…no, no…
Well, maybe in four or eight years...

Going waaay back to a classic Broadway musical, but I expect you're reading HC's mind pretty well. 555
