about

This is a solo recording by Greg from Verona Downs.

This song was written not long after Obama took office in 2009. One daughter and lots of scattered recording sessions later, the track was finally finished and is now a sort of farewell homage to him.

lyrics

This is what the plants all need today
This is what the plants all need today
They lived thru it all the longest winter
They lived thru it all the longest winter
Now the clouds
are starting to break

This is where the game begins to change
This is where the game begins to change
You came and you threw some stupid insults
You came now you can go back to Alaska
'cause for once
the right one stays

Chorus:
All the boys and all the girls want
something to say
Now they know what to say...

Bridge:
Now can I take you on your word?
Now can I take you on your word?
Now can I take you on your word
your words are the best thing I ever heard

Chorus:
All the boys and all the girls want something to change
All the boys and all the girls want something to claim
Now they know what to say
Now they know what to say
