My people watch and pray

hope and pray to see another day

Obama, I thought change came yesterday

what do you say to those who dare say

that promises are made just to be thrown away

millions passed away yesterday

waiting for the promises you made, to be fulfilled today

On their behalf I have a message to convey

On their behalf, this message I relay

what do you say to those who dare say

that life is a game, that we all must play

that the rich will be the ones who will see another day

am sorry but the truth, I don’t shy away

I speak for the millions who passed away yesterday

and the millions more who sit and pray

hope and pray to see another day

but will likely expire the day after today

in front of me I see their bodies decay

am sorry but they truth I don’t shy away

I speak for the millions who passed away yesterday
