The Lyrics

The Reparation man came
And some voters caused a raid
And the voting lasted all day,
All day
And through a Jena parade
Like Obama on election day
Pushing the town away
Ah -

Oh, hey Obama
Strife in a northern town

They started a battleground
And he stomped a cigarette out
And all his folks came down
To listen.
He campaigned in 2003
At home he sits and grieves
For Ed Kennedy
On his bugle

Oh, hey Oba ma ma
Strife in a northern town
Oh, hey Oba ma ma
Now all the work's shut down

The tax man is such a pain
They wash our money down the drain
As they followed him down
To United Nations
And though he never would run with Evan Bayh
You could hear that sound in his lies
So his campaign went out of sight
Bye, Bayh

Oh, hey Oba ma ma
Strife in a northern town
Oh, hey Oba ma ma
Strife in the northern town

How totally boring. I'd vote on it, but it seems you can't click negative numbers for your score.
