I Ain’t Gonna Fight Obama’s War No More

by MITCHEL COHEN, SANDY URE GRIFFIN AND JOEL LANDY

I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more
No I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more
He hands me a nickel
He’s lookin’ kinda strange
Then he asks me with a grin
How I like that kind of “change”
The NSA kicks down my door
No I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more

I ain’t gonna pay Obama’s debt no more
No, I ain’t gonna pay Obama’s debt no more
Can’t afford to pay for college
So I joined the brave and few
Went from New York University
To Depleted U.
Then they took my home and foreclosed on the store
I ain’t gonna pay Obama’s debt no more.

I ain’t gonna fire Obama’s drones no more
No I ain’t gonna fire Obama’s drones no more
His Secretary of State
Who was once against the war
Now says “let’s bomb Syria”
From submarines off shore
Kerry’s a clone of Colin Powell — been down this road before
No I ain’t gonna fire Obama’s drones no more

I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more
No, I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more
Overseas they loved him
Now they open up their eyes
And wonder if it’s too late
To take back the Nobel Prize
Be careful of world leaders you adore
No, I ain’t gonna fight Obama’s war no more
