OBAMA - THE MUSICAL: GOODNIGHT AND THANK YOU


[Che:]
Goodnight and thank you, gays
He is in every magazine
Been photographed, seen, he is known
We don't like to rush, but your case has been packed
If he's missed anything, you could give him a ring
But he won't always answer the phone

[Obama:]
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But we have pretended enough
It's best that we both stop fooling ourselves

[Che:]
Which means ...

[Chorus:]

... you're out!

[Che and Obama:]
There is noone, noone at all
Never has been, and never will be a politician, male or female
Who hasn't an eye on, in fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They're hoping their believers will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don't blame them, you're the same

[Che:]
Goodnight and thank you, black man
You've completed your task
What more can we ask of you now?
Please sign the book on the way out the door
And that will be all, if he needs you he'll call
But I don't think that's likely somehow

[Obama:]
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you'll look back on the good times we've shared
Which means ...

[Che:]
Goodnight and thank you, all you bloggers
We are grateful you found him a spot on the sound radio
We'll think of you every time he's on the air
We'd love you to stay but you'd be in the way
So do up your trousers and go

[Obama:]
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
The decline into silence and doubt
Our passion was just too intense to survive

[Che:]
Which means ...

[Believers:]
This is a club I should never have joined
Someone has made us look fools
Someone has altered the rules

[Obama:]
Fame on the wireless as far as it goes
Is all very well but every man knows

[Che:]
To win the masses, he needs to monopolize
... and have his fingers in dozens of different pies

[Believers:]
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
