The Lyrics

Say what you will, President Obama ran a good campaign in 2008. He hasn't stopped campaigning since, as many predicted, because giving speeches is something he does best. His speeches may not always include a lot of substance, as his many speeches since becoming President have shone, and that's what this parody is about. This first hit, Fingertips, by then 12-year-old Stevie Wonder seemed a natural vehicle to capture the feel of President Obama's speeches and campaign appearances ... at least in the land of parody and satire. ;-)
SUGAR LIPS (Part 2)

Everybody say “YEAH”
(YEAH)
Say “WE”
(WE!)
Say “YES”
(Yes)
“WE”
(We)
“Yes we can!”
(Audience screams)

(Drums/harmonica solo)

Just a little bit of ho-o-o-o-ope!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Slap me some hope just a
Little bit louder
Slap some change just a
little bit louder

(Drums/harmonica solo)

I know everybody wants to help me
Everybody’s gonna do fine
So if you follow me
The way it's got to be
I’ll bring you all some hope and change
Just give me time, I tell no lies
Just four more years then I will say “bye”
But don’t cry!

(Drums/harmonica solo)

(Screams/applauding)

Emcee:

"How about it? Let's hear
it for him, huh? President
Obama! Take a
bow, Barack!"

(Screaming/applause)

Come on!

Well, goodbye goodbye
Goodbye goodbye
Goodbye goodbye goodbye
Are you guys ready?
Y'know, they can’t stop us
If they bring a knife,
Then we'll bring a gun!

(harmonica solo/drums)

"Barack Obama!"

(Screaming/fainting/applause)

(More drums/harmonica/screaming/fainting/applause)

(Fade)
Since I had to figure out the lyrics from a 45, and some of the words are undecipherable, they may be a little rough, but you get the idea. ;-)

It does seem like a lot of cheering followed later by "huh, what did he say?"

DKOS well enough to vote, but the references to swooning in the presence of the Hosin' One was too spot-on!

Timmy1000 - You're right about that. The secret in a campaign is to not say anything that might turn off your critics but to say enough between the lines to satisfy your supporters. ;-)

Fiddlegirl, if you haven't heard this before or don't remember it well enough to have it playing in your head without even thinking, check YouTube where I just found several versions, both studio and live. Twelve-year old Stevie, who wrote this song, on harmonica and bongos with Marvin Gaye on drums is quite a treat. :-)

There is *no* doubt that he was one of the greatest orators of our time, with his ability to captivate crowds (same with Hitler, remember?), which makes such demagogues all the more dangerous.

Yes, TT. It's almost as if his candidacy was totally manufactured and scripted, wasn't it? Of course I wouldn't put anyone in the AH category, but the methods of the demagogues, including those who learned their lessons and deliveries in front of fiery preachers, from guys like our own Huey long down to our the more sophisticated and canned versions we see now, are unmistakable. A nice baritone, a pretty smile, a clever scripwriter, and a good tailor go a long way these days. Too bad the current generations are just as gullible as former generations. It's rather embarrassing.
