Visited the site of Jaymel Songwriter, curious to learn about a new subscriber to hugmamma’s mind, body, and soul. The visit did not disappoint. In fact it amazed me, as it always does, that someone probably half my age might be interested in what I have to say. I think it’s good for the generations to switch channels once-in-awhile to listen to a different kind of yada, yada, yada. We can all learn something. I did.
I’ve defended Obama’s right to be President of the United States, much to the chagrin and consternation of a sibling. But to each his own, and no amount of dueling will change either of our minds. So we’ll “let sleeping dogs lie.” I hope.
I’ve not been a fan of rap, mostly because I could never distinguish the words to learn the message. But I think you’ll agree that Jaymel’s voice comes through loud and clear in his song, which I’ve reprinted below.
LAY OFF OBAMA
HE TRYING TO SAVE A NATON FROM A PAST BAD RELATION
JAPAN SHOWS APPRECIATION FOR THE RELIEF OF THE QUAKING
HE SHOWED, MUCH LOVE TO THE HATIANS
HOW EVERYBODY ELSE GONNA LOVE ‘EM
AND HIS OWN HOMETEAM TREAT HIM LIKE HE AIN’T TRYING DO NOTHING
THE RICH MAD BECAUSE THE POOR IS EQUAL
BE THANKFUL, I WOULD FEEL SORRY FOR YOU PEOPLE
IF THE LESS FORTUNATE IS AT THE SAME TABLE
WITH BOLOGNA, BUT YOU HAVE A STEAK, IT WOULD A KANE AND ABEL
BUSH IS THE ONE TO BLAME
HE THE ONE THAT TOOK LADY AMERICA THROUGH THIS PAIN
LIKE A MAN OBAMA GAVE HIS SHOULDER AND DIDN’T COMPLAIN
I’M GLAD HE LET US WALK WITH MCCAIN
EVERY SOUL SHOULD KNOW THE FEELING
OBAMA PICKING UP BAGGAGE THAT NEEDS FOUR TERMS OF HEALING
HE NEED TWO TERMS TO CLEAN UP BUSH FIRST TERM
AS FOR THE RE-ELECTION, IT WAS BUSH’S WORST TERM
LOUISIANA STILL REBUILDING FROM THE HURRICANE
OBAMA JUST STILL TRYING BLOW OUT THE 9/11 FLAME
FAMILY OF THE VICTIMS, WE STILL FEEL YOUR PAIN
THE BEST THAT BUSH DID WAS SADDAM HUSSEIN
BUT OBAMA IS THE ONE THAT GOT THE GRAND PRIZE
WHEN HE TOLD BIN LADEN, “YOU CAN RUN, BUT CAN’T HIDE”
YEAH, HE MIGHT BE COOL AND SERENE
BUT MEET THE BAD GUY IF YOU FOOL WITH HIS QUEEN
YES, I’M TALKING ABOUT AMERICA, SO BE PATIENT
A CHANGE GONNA COME, BUT IT’S UP TO US TO MAKE IT.
