Dear Barack, We Thank You for These Gifts We Are About to Receive.

By now many Americans are probably well aware of the video on youtube showing school children singing the praises of President Obama. If not, well, here it is:



The response given by the school stated:


Dear Burlington Township Families:


Today we became aware of a video that was placed on the internet which has been reported in the media. The video is of a class of students singing a song about President Obama. The activity took place during Black History Month in 2009, which is recognized each February to honor the contributions of African Americans to our country. Our curriculum studies, honors and recognizes those who serve our country. The recording and distribution of the class activity were unauthorized.


If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me or Dr. King, Principal of B. Bernice Young School, directly.



Dr. Christopher M. Manno,

Superintendent of Schools


Considering that it is now fully encouraged that such acclaim be sung towards the President to the tune of religious songs, the following are recommended for teachers who are prejudiced against their students sounding like the early nineties band Crash Test Dummies.



To the tune of the The First Noel:


Barack Obama, is more than a man

He was sent from Chicago to lead us by hand

He changed the world by speaking the truth

And stopped climate change to protect the youth.

Obama, Obama, Obama, Obama

He is the One who will save us from us!



To the tune of Silent Night:


Barack Obama, President

Came to us, not hesitant

Bipartisan and post-racial

Get the world to love us you shall

Lead with eloquent speech

Lead with eloquent speech


And for those who object to any religious concepts being brought into their classroom, the following song has been written.


To the tune of Auld Lang Syne:


Should the old ways be forgot,

And the world rid of drama,

Should the old ways be forgot,

And in Age of Obama


For Obama, my dear,

For Obama,

We’ll take a public option yet,

For Obama.


 Also, the NEA suggests that the following be recited every morning before the official start of the school day:


Barack Obama,

Who art in D.C.,

Hallowed be thy name.

Health reform come,

Thy will be done,

Here as it is in Chicago.

Give us this pay,

Our stimulus bill.

Three million jobs to save or create,

As we find ourselves empty of hate.

And lead us not into inflation,

But deliver us from Republicans.



These songs and many more will soon be available on CD or preloaded Ipod, sung by the children from the KidsBop line, for the low low price of $34.99 and $399.99, respectively.
