Here if the unofficial song from the Obama inauguration, written and performed by Boy George. See the video and lyrics, and tell us what you think.

Obama supporters are lobbying for the song’s inclusion at the inauguration but there is no word yet on whether it will be performed. It probably will not be sung by Boy George himself, given that Obama’s biggest fan in the recording industry was just sentenced to 15 months in jail for chaining and beating a male escort named Audun Carlsen in his home. Change we can believe in? Yes we can.

There is a entire cult following of Obama songs on the internet, from Obama Girl to Boy George. Obsessive fans created a YouTube channel for them here. Liberal news organizations are gushing with coverage of each and every Obama tune while some even provide a musical critique.

Boy George explained the Obama song in the following way:

“I was deeply moved and motivated by Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ speech and I used it as a metaphor for personal change because there have been huge changes in my own life this past year. ‘Yes We Can’ equates as Yes I Can from my own personal perspective and like many people I am excited by the prospect of Obama being the first black man in the White House and the next president of America.”

Obama Song: Yes We Can (Video)




Obama Song Lyrics:

there’s no time
for indeference
dont you know
how truly blessed you are?
mmm… yeah…

mother’s tears fall
when you hurt yourself
while others wait
to watch you fall apart

please forgive these
crimes against myself
and I’ll forgive your
lack of faith..

yes we can!
make it to the promise land
yes we can
I know we can
yes we can

those you take
into your confidence
can you trust them…
trust them with your heart?

no one knows you
like you know yourself
you’re in control right now
but you might go to far

oh yeah, I say
please forgive these
crimes against myself
and I’ll forgive your
lack of faith..

yes we can!
make it to the promise land
yes we can
I know we can

yes we can
make it to the promise land
yes we can
I know we can…
yes we can!

yes we can-yes we can-
yes we can…

yes we can-I know we can
make it to the promise land…
