"Yes We Can (Barack Obama song)" as written by and Tim Adrian Rogers....
It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.
Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.
Yes we can, yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores
And pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized;
Women who reached for the ballots;
A President who chose the moon as our new frontier;
And a King who took us to the mountain-top and pointed the way to the Promised Land.
Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can heal this nation.
Yes we can repair this world.
Yes we can. Si se puede.

We know the battle ahead will be long,
But always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way-
Nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.
We want change, we want change...

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics
They will only grow louder and more dissonant.
We've been asked to pause for a reality check.
We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America, there's never been anything false about hope.

The hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the Dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
We will remember that there is something happening in America;
That we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
That we are one people;
That we are one nation;
And together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story
With three words that will ring from coast to coast;
From sea to shining sea-
Yes we can.

    Song Meaningwow this song has an underlying meaning that most wont know about. when u play a song backwards sometimes its incredible that there are subliminals in them.
    on learning about this i became interested in finding out that our most favoured music has some of the most horrible messages in them when reversed.
    i didnt believe this at first either and thought it was some hoax or old myth. from investigating this with software found too my digust it to be true. so hence now ive completely changed what i listen to and watch on tele as these can adversely change the healthy path of thought. maybe explains alot of why we can get soooo down when listening to a thought provoking song. mmmm :)
    this song backwards is a song of satanic worship. clearly stating it. forwards a great song. but backwards. WOW. what we dont know wont hurt us IS CLEARLY NOT TRUE. Sadly most of the music has messages and voices in it. Becareful and take care of your soul. it is the only part of us that is eternal.
