Barack's The President Now


TransGriot Note: Y'all knew I was gonna come strong with my first song rewrite for the '09. In honor of the inauguration of our 'Brother President' and the immense pride I feel about it, here's a rewrite of the classic McFadden and Whitehead song 'Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now'


Barack's The President Now

(sung to the tune of 'Ain't No Stopping Us Now' by McFadden and Whitehead



Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!

The last eight years has really got me down.
And the Republicans have jacked this country around.
I know we've got, a long tough road to hoe,
But on the 20th, Bush must go.
But we won't let this mess hold us back,
We're getting our stuff together,
Getting our troops out of Iraq!
If you ever felt disenfranchised before,
I know you'll refuse to be disenfranchised anymore!

Don't you let neoconservatives,
Stand in your way!
I want y'all to listen, listen,
to every word I say, every word I say!

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
I know, I know
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!
We got it.

You know Faux News and friends will push that negative vibe
And when things improve they'll all want to imbibe
Hatin' on him is the way they wanna go
Sarah Palin in 2012? Oh hell no
But we won't let this mess hold us back,
We're getting our stuff together,
Getting our troops out of Iraq!
If you ever felt disenfranchised before,
I know you'll refuse to be disenfranchised anymore!

Don't you let neoconservatives,
Stand in your way!
I want y'all to listen, listen,
to every word I say, every word I say!

Barack's the president now!
Yo Yo Yo
We're on the move!
We're moving, improving

Barack's the president now!
Moving improving moving improving
Barack's the president now!
I know things will improve!

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
I know things really, really will improve

The GOP's lying
But I ain't buying

We're leaving the negative people
Way behind

Because our turn has finally come around

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!

Barack's the president now!
We're on the move!
Barack's the president now!
Things will improve!

lol. Love the song... "Barack's the President Now"
However the phrase I've heard with the most ring to it today is "Former President George W. Bush"..."former"...doesn't that sound nice?
