I am Barack, I am Obama

I am Barack (to the tune of "I am a rock" by Simon/Garfunkel)

Another day/ /
In a deep and long primary/ /
I am a candidate
For the Presidential, election of 08
With change there’s hope so voters pledge for me

I am Barack
I am Obama!

I’ve raised cash
A fund so deep and mighty/
That she may never e-e-quate
I have no need of pastors
Wright he caused me pain
Its Republicans and right wingers I disdain

I am Barack
I am Obama!

Don’t talk of her
For I’ve heard her words before
She’s not sleeping in this Primary
I won’t disturb the slumber of states where we have tied
In Michigan & Florida I won’t cry

I am Barack
I am Obama!

I have my wife
Michelle [And my rhetoric/spindoctors] here to protect me
I am running in this primary
In the Presidential, election of 08,
For the democratic nomination I’d be great

I am Barack
I am Obama!

And Barack feels your pain
And Obama never lied


I wrote this last Saturday morning ... was a bit of fun...I have two versions ...one is in original key other is a little changed ...
