[Intro - Barack Obama - taken from victory speech in Iowa]
They said this day would never come
They said our sights were set too high
This country is too divided too disillusioned
To ever come together around a common purpose. They said
"Although it seems heaven-sent
We ain't ready to have a black president"
Yes we can change the world the world the world
[Verse 1 - Nas]
They forgot us on the block got us in the box
Solitary confinement: how violent are these cops?
They need a early retirement
How many rallies will I watch? I ain't got it in me to march
I got a Semi to spark the game's in a drought
Public housing projects cooking up in the Pyrex
My set my clique either getting money
Or running from homicide trail that's if they ain't died yet
Trying to be rich still I'm pledging allegiance
A predicate felon a ghetto leader
Lending my poetical genius to whoever may need it
I bleed this from Queensbridge now living with my feet up
Never defeated so a president's needed
You know these colored folks and Negros hate to see
One of their own succeeding
America: surprise us and let a black man guide us

[Verse 2 - Nas]
What's the black pres' thinking on election night?
Is it: "How can I protect my life? Protect my wife? Protect my rights?"
Every other president was nothing less than white
Except Thomas Jefferson had mixed Indian blood.. and Calvin Coolidge
KKK is like: "What the fuck?!" loading their guns up
Loading up mine too ready to ride
Cause I'm riding with my crew - he dies we die too
Yeah but on the positive side
I think Obama provides hope and challenges minds
Of all races and colors to erase the hate
And try to love one another. So many political snakes
We in need of a break I'm thinking I can trust this brotha
...but will he keep it way real?
Every innocent nigga in jail gets out on appeal
When he wins will he really care still?
[Verse 3 - Nas]
Say a prayer for "Do we have to?"
You ain't right Jeremiah Wrong pastor
In love with a slave master
Sincerely yours USA's most brave rapper
Jesse carjacker Uncle Tom kidnapper
Ask around: Bentley coupe off the Richter
Bitch called "Life": I pimped her what
Politics politricks Klan-shooter
Deacon for defense progress-producer
Nothing on the stove a survival-booster
Gotta do what we gotta do
We ain't got no governors coming through to help
Anything we need done gotta do for self
New improved JFK on the way
It ain't the 60s again niggas ain't hippies again
We ain't falling for the same traps
Standing on the balconies where they shot the King at
McCain got apologies; ain't nobody hearing that
People need honesty
[Outro - Governor Bill Richardson]
It is my distinct honor and privilege to introduce
The next President of the United States - Barack Obama
