The Lyrics

The theme of the US President's spech to Congress was "I'm taking charge whether you like it or not." The OS was a similar rallying cry and in-your-face declaration of emerging power.
I'm Obaman, hear me soar
Poll numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go slack and defend
'Cause I heard truth from Al Gore
When I was down on Senate floor
Where they're never gonna vote with Bush again

REFRAIN:
Oh, yes, I am king
But my kingdom's born of pains
Yes, you've paid the price
For Democratic gains
As Great Leader, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I'm Obaman

You'll offend but never shake me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I'll come back even stronger
Not that novice but chief monger
'Cause you've deepened my conviction in my role

[REFRAIN]

I'm Obaman, watch my show
See me standing with the foe
As I spread my social welfare 'cross the land
Though I haven't started slow
There's a long hard way to go
Until I give my brothers upper hand

[REFRAIN]

Oh, I'm Obaman
I am invincible
Come along
I'm Obaman
I'm unconvincible
Never wrong
I'm Obaman
What is the "final goal" in either song? Who are "the foe" and "my brothers"? I don't say. Write to bjmitchel@att.net with feedback.

Funny stuff... great title sub and for whatever reason your "Not that novice but chief monger" line tickled my fancy
