A Star is Born in Obama

Born from a broken home
Born to be free
Son of a mother
Dad chose to flee

A star you are
And a star you'll be
Aspiring to take us all far into the next Century

President Obama
Son of this soil
Sleeves rolled up
Never afraid to toil

You are American
You are one of us
We are all traveling on the same bus

Even though the economy is failing
And the bus dangles near the railing
Hope is in sight
If we follow the star's light

A star he is
A star he'll be
The next president of our country
