Obama Rap Song Taught to School Children

By TheWatchman on September 24, 2009

At a time when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in schools has faced significant scrutiny, several adults at B. Bernice Young Elementary in Burlington Township, NJ thought nothing of coaching a group of school kids in their performance of an Obama rap song.  The woman who videotaped the students is Charisse Carney-Nunes, author of the children's book I Am Barack Obama.  The book's cover is displayed on the easel to the left of the students in the video. The footage landed on YouTube earlier this month.  Due to the quality of the audio, certain portions of the Obama rap song video are hard to hear.  We deciphered the lyrics and posted them in transcript format below.

A second song telling the President "you are number one!" follows the rap.  We deciphered what we could.  The lyrics are posted below.

Watch the video of the school children singing the Obama rap song:

Hip hip hooray!
