    Have we learned our lesson?

    Oh the depression.
    How could we let things get so bad, so terrible
    Till now we’re in a recession.
    Well we got a new president, unha-alright
    And yes he’s African American
    And yes I’m proud to be standing here sharing it,
    But have we learned our lesson?
    That is the question.
    Most say it was bushes fault.
    Now I’m not saying that some wasn’t bushes fault
    But at the same time I sat back and rethought
    See now we’re in greater poverty, it’s gotten so bad… so unfortunate
    That in some states they’re actually charging fees in soup kitchens.
    Is that the American dream?
    Do outsiders really want to be on our team?
    I’m not dissing, just wishing for a better day.
    But as I’m told Barrack Obama is going to pave the way.
    He says it’s time for a change
    That nothing should ever stay the same.
    But lets be honest. He can’t do it all on his own
    We as Americans have to be strong.
    No longer shall we walk around in shame
    Although some incidents in the past
    We as citizens should take the blame.
    So have we learned our lesson?
    That is the question.
    The economy is getting lower and lower by the number
    And no, no it aint no wonder
    We’re trillions of dollars in debt
    And we know… we know why
    The government is overcharging what we aint got
    Which is a lot on credit cards.
    We’re falling hard.
    Healthcare crisis
    47 million Americans with no health insurance
    And there are 300 million people in America to date
    You do the math
    Sad, but as of right now this is our path
    Ooh, the hesitation
    Today we have lower and less education
    All this, this is why
    As Americans, as individuals
    We’re dealing with greater and greater frustrations
    Now you... you tell me
    Have we learned our lesson?
    Please someone answer my question
    There’s more crime
    Our brothers and sisters are killing each other over dimes
    We don’t have time, we need jobs
    We need to turn it around
    We need to lead this country
    But how can we lead in the days to come if the rich are getting richer
    And the poor are getting poorer?
    Ohh in order to receive our blessing
    Have we learned our lesson?
    That is the question.
