A Hard Day's Night featuring Barack Obama
It's been a Hard Day's Night and I've been workin' like a dog.
It's been a Hard Day's Night I should be sleepin' like a log.
But when I get home to you, I find the things that you do will make me feel alright.
You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things.
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're gonna give me everything...
. . .
Hey, pardon me for asking but who's that little black man?
Uh... what little black man?
That little black man.
Oh, that one. That's my senator.
That's not yer senator.
That's my other senator but this one's my senator as well.
How do you reckon that one out?
Well everyone's entitled to two aren't they and this is my other one.
We know that but what's he doin' here?
Well the party thought the trip would do him good. He's down in the polls.
Poor old thing. Hey mister, are you down in the polls?
. . .
He's a nice black man, isn't he?
He's very clean.
And we're looking after him, are we?
Well, we're here. Norm'll be along in a minute with the tickets.
Hey. Who's that little black man?
It's Paul's senator.
Oh, but I thought...
No, that's his other one.
Oh, that's alright then.
Clean, though, isn't he?
Oh, he's very clean.
Morning lads. Glad you all got here. Now look, I've had a marvelous idea. Just for once let's all try to behave like ordinary respectable citizens. Let's not cause any trouble, pull any strokes, or do anything I'm gonna be sorry for. Especially tomorrow in that television theatre, because...
Hey! Who's that little black man?
He belongs to Paul.
Oh, well. I'm going down for a cup of coffee. You can come with Shake and me if you like.
. . .
He's very clean, isn't he?
