Obama We Were Hopeful

Obama, we were hopeful, cautiously believing
You meant what you said to us — we’d get bo-old change!
Now we know better, here’s our warning letter:
OBAMA WE’LL BE WATCHING,
OBAMA WE’LL BE MARCHING,
OBAMA WE’LL BE HOLDING YOUR FEET TO THE FIRE!

Your first years were frightful — trying to get your bearings,
Oil men and gen’rals whisp’ring into your ears;
Outside, we’re shouting – listen to your people!
OBAMA WE ARE WATCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE MARCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE HOLDING YOUR FEET TO THE FIRE!

Barack, it’s disgraceful, see how things have worsened;
Folks losing jobs and health care, Wall Street running free!
And don’t get me started on military spending –
OBAMA WE ARE WATCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE MARCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE HOLDING YOUR FEET TO THE FIRE!

We are still hopeful, we think you can do it;
Show us real progress, not the same old politics.
Remember your promise, remember who elected you!
OBAMA WE ARE WATCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE MARCHING,
OBAMA WE ARE HOLDING YOUR FEET TO THE FIRE!
