From the New Musical Barack O, Superstar


Act 1, Scene 1: Obama On My Mind


Ayers:

My mind is clearer now - at last all too well
I can see where we all soon will be
If you strip away the myth from the man
You will see where we all soon will be
Barack! You've started to believe the things they say of you
You really do believe your talk so odd is true
And all you think you've done will soon get swept away
You've begun to matter more than the things you say

Listen Barack I don't like what I see
All I ask is that you listen to me
And remember - I've been your right hand man all along
You had set them all on fire
They thought they found the new Messiah
They will vote you out now - found they're wrong
I remember when this whole thing began
No talk of 'Pres' then - we called you a man
And believe me - my admiration for you hasn't died
But every word you say today
Gets twisted round some other way
And they'll impeach you if they find you've lied

Nairobi your famous son should have stayed a great unknown
Like his father sawing wood - he'd have made good
Lying back and sleeping deep would have suited Barack, yeep
He'd have caused nobody's harm - no-one alarm

Listen Barack talk no more of your race 
Change the subject please - at least with some grace
You praised 'Occupy' - have you forgotten how put down they are?
I am frightened by the press
For the truth they may yet guess
And they'll crush us if we go too far
Listen Barack to the warning I bray
Please remember that I want us to stay
But it's sad to see our chances weakening with every hour
All your followers were blind
Too much Obama on their minds
It was beautiful but now it's sour
Yes it's all gone sour.....
