The Fresh Prince of Obama

Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became the Democrat’s black Tony Blair.

In west Hawaii born and raised
In the Law School is where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who we’re up to no good”
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said “we’re moving you to Illinois to be a millionaire”

I begged and pleaded with her the other day
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way
She gave me a kissin’ and she gave me my ticket
I put my walkman on and said I might aswell kick it

First class, yo this is ain’t bad,
Drinking champagne out of an orange juice glass
Is this what the people of Illinois livin’ like,
Hmm this might be alright!

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said “fresh ” with DC in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought now forget it, yo home to my lair

I pulled up to the White House about seven or eight
And I yelled to the Clintons “yo, home smell you later”
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the black Tony Blair
