OBAMA - THE MUSICAL: AMERICA'S LATEST FLAME




[Che:] 
At the watering holes of the well-to-do
I detect a resistance to
[Upper Class:]

Precisely
[Che:]
Our hero's style
[Upper Class:]
We're glad you noticed

[Che:] 

The shooting sticks of the upper-class
[Upper Class:]
Give them an inch
[Che:]
Aren't supporting a single ass
That would rise for that ne... – no
[Upper Class:]
They'll take a mile

[Upper Class:]
Such a shame he wandered into our enclosure
How unfortunate this person has forced us to be blunt
No we wouldn't mind seeing him at our banks
But behind the counter, not in front

[Che:]
Could there be in our fighting corps
A lack of enthusiasm for
[Army:]
Exactly
[Che:]
America's latest flame
[Army:]
You said it brother

[Che:]
Should you wish to cause great distress
In the tidiest officer's mess
Just mention his name

[Army:]
That isn't funny

The people are fools, breaking every taboo
Installing a ne... – no! in the army H.Q.
And he's an unknown, the last straw
He only talks, never's done more
He hasn't realised our nation's perpetually at war
Obama's just the people's latest whore

The evidence suggests
He has other interests
If it's him who's using them
They're exceptionally dim
Ne... – no! Dangerous! Wait

[Upper Class:]
We have allowed ourselves to slip
We have completely lost our grip
We have declined to an all-time low
Blacks have become the set to know

[Obama:]
I am only a Senator from Chicago
But speaking as one of the people I want you to know
We are tired of the decline of America
With no sign of a government able to give us the things we deserve

[Army:]
It's no crime for US officers to do as they please
As long as they're discreet and keep clear of the news
We ignore, we disregard
Cause once we allow the people to know
They might not want to follow where we want them to go
We are forced to do this, it's the only way to go

He should not get into their heads
He should know the dangers
Of telling them what the want to hear
We don't want them to think, we want them to fear
That ne... no! It's dangerous, we say!

[News Reporter:]
This has really been your year, Mister Obama?
Tell us where you go from here, Mister Obama?
What new roles that you yearn to play?
Whom did you sell out to ... met with yesterday?

[Obama:]
Being a Senator is limiting, the party's line is not mine
And that's no help to the American guy

[News Reporter:]
Can we assume then that you'll quit?
Is this because of your involvement with...


[Press Secretary:]
Goodnight and thank you

[Army:]
He won't be kept happy by his current position
He says it's for them, but we know that is a lie
The people are just cannon fodder for us

You know that to be true, don't you fucking dare to cry

He should not get into their heads
He should know the dangers
Of telling them what the want to hear
We don't want them to think, we want them to fear
That ne... no! It's dangerous, we say!
The evidence suggests
He must have other interests
If it's him who's using them
They're exceptionally dim

[Upper Class:]
Things have reached a pretty pass
When someone pretty lower-class
Graceless and vulgar, uninspired
Can be accepted and admired
