What Do We Want from Obama?

What do we want from Obama,
The man we’d like to love?
We’re here to tell you what we wrote
To him on change-dot-gov:

We want our troops brought home real quick
And all the wars to cease,
’Cause bombs and occupation
Are not the way to peace.

We want fair and equal treatment
For folks both straight and gay,
And an end to corporate bailouts…
Those with the most should pay!

We want single-payer health care,
Or else you’ll hear us rage,
And jobs that stay right here at home
And pay a living wage.

Restore our civil liberties!
We don’t know where they went…
And an end to the label of terrorist
For those who dare dissent.

Stop the use of torture.
Justice must prevail!
But here’s the thing that we want most –
Cheney and Bush in jail!

That’s what we want from Obama,
It must be our demand!
To set our country right again,
Put Cheney and Bush in the can!
