The Lyrics

America faces a critical choice next year: to elect an unknown candidate or to support a President with a proven record.
We will remember Barack next November
For all he's done, we are indebted
Will we dismember, his dreams turn to embers
When counting's done, the votes he's netted
Promises tendered in speeches, September
Who would vote some unknown and callow fellow?
This much remember when judgement you render

He'll focus, focus, focus

We will remember Congressional members
Their health care plan, so long in waiting
Back to their seats in the month post December
They will return, resume debating
No need to mention, our lives in suspension
While jobless rates conspire to choke us
When needs of our nation require concentration

They'll focus, focus, focus

Your choice, your selection, the booth next election
Our President? Some tea pot stranger?
Time for reflection, a change in direction?
Financial woes, our land in danger
Our soldiers on station, the Spring's aspiration*
Will Freedom's foes still dare provoke us?
America's hurtin', there's one thing for certain

He'll focus, focus, focus.....

*The Arab Spring. Popular uprisings in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen. The people demand the overthrow of long-entrenched dictatorships.

Patrick - The OS is my mother's favorite song and The Fantasticks is my favorite musical. Also, Jerry Orbach was El Gallo in the original cast. He'll focus...all of us! ;D

In the 1986 ABC mini-series "Amerika", Muriel Hemingway sang that song as a member of an underground theatrical troupe, trying to preserve old melodies and memories during Soviet occupation. I'm sure the President and Congress will give us their full attention if reelected. There is no aspect of our existence which they would ignore.
