My Momma Says Obama A documentary film as we stand at the threshold of our American dream

Our Music

My Momma Says Obama is composed of philosophical, organic interviews, often described as 'Frost/Nixon' meets 'My Dinner with Andre', archival videos, but most exciting is the strong musical element. Golden Globe and Oscar winning songwriter, Keith Carradine sang, "Born Again American", which he wrote for philanthropist Norman Lear. Skyler Jett, our music supervisor, is a widely celebrated activist and musician and has written the attached theme song to My Momma Says Obama, performed by Eric Daniels, as well as  'Lies (when ya' gonna clean up that oil spill?)'.  Eric Daniels, keyboardist, who played at the inauguration of President Obama "will finally release ‘The Obama Presidential Suite’. This is a set of short orchestral compositions written as a soundtrack to the current administration and dedicated to President Obama."

Mama says Obama mix CLICK ON TO LISTEN

music by Eric Daniels - lyrics by Skyler Jett

Hey Mr. President, you can have my vote !

My mama says that you're the antidote.

Hey Mr. President, we need health care,

Millions of families are really scared.

I got my knowledge from college,

Still I can't find a job, my skin is black and my name ain't Bob

I heard the party of "No" trying to give me advice,

Those evil people said nothing nice- that's why ...

My mama says Obama x3

if you don't want no drama

Hey Mr. President, show-um your mojo works

Tea parties digging up racial  dirt.

Hey Mr. President, I hope you don't watch Fox

That fair and balance is a bunch of crock

They're just mad 'cause you've done something they wouldn't do

Like you got rid of that motley crew

You can't imagine all the places that my money was spent

I'll be surprised if i can pay the rent- thats why...

My mama says Obama x3

If you don't want no drama

I'm gonna to tell  my friends to vote for you,

To make  change that's what we'll have to do.

They never thought that you would get this far,

You rocking  houses  like mega star that's why.

i watch them take our country back about 40 years,

Bringing families to the brink of tears.

To every African American this is a dream

- reminds us all of Martin Luther King.

My Mama says Obama

better Vote:

if you're just trying to survive,

you better you vote

it's hard enough just staying alive.

you better vote:

if you need some health care

you better vote

so many people are living scared.

you better vote:

if you can't pay the rent

you better vote

he needs to be our president

that's why My mama says obama.

LiesWritten by Skyler Jett

When you gonna clean up that oil spill?

Lie, lie, go ahead and have another try
Lie, lie we can see it in your eyes … that you...
Lie, lie, go ahead and have another try
Lie, lie we can see it in your eyes that you.

Drill, drill now you got an awful spill
No one takes the blame - the game remains the same.
Spill, spill makin’ all the wildlife ill,
There’s no end in sight, families fighting for their lives.
BP, Haliburton, Trans Ocean , it’s for certain
Doesn’t matter what you say we all know you’re to blame
It’s the same old story, you’re constantly avoiding
Families living on the edge of life with no relief in sight
Ain’t gonna take no more of your lies …

Why, why are you tryin’ to slip another one by,
You told the same lie once before and now you’re spilling more.
You can try, try but I’m never gonna be surprised.
I hope you get what you deserve cause you’re out here wreckin’
Everybody’s nerves, why you telling those lies.

When you gonna clean up that oil spill
When you gonna tell us what’s really real.

Can’t you see what they’re doing to the Gulf Of Mexico
They’re finding oil on the beaches and the shores everywhere they go ain't gona take on more of your lies

Lies- when you going to clean up that oil spill.


Born Again American


by Keith Carradine

Just a workin’ man without a job
It got shipped off to China via Washington, D.C.
And I know I’m nothin’ special, there are plenty more like me
Just the same
I thought I knew the rules of the game

I stood up for this country that I love
I came back from the desert to a wife and kids to feed
I’m not sayin’
Uncle Sam should give me what I need
My offer stands
I’ll pull my weight you give me half a chance

I went up to a congressman and said to him “you know
Our government is letting people down”
He said he’d need a lot of help to buck the status-quo
I said there was a bunch of us around

I’m a Born Again American, conceived in Liberty
My Bible and the
Bill of Rights, my creed’s equality
I’m a Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

My brother’s welding chassis at the plant
He’s earning what our granddad did in 1948
While CEOs count bonuses behind the castle gates
How can they see
When all they care about’s the do re mi

It’s getting where there’s nowhere left to turn
Not since the crash of twenty-nine have things been so unfair
So many of our citizens are living in despair
The time has come
To reaffirm that hope’s not just for some

The promise of America’s surrendering to greed
The rule is just look out for number one
But brace yourself ‘cause some of us have sown a different seed
A harvest of the spirit has begun

I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
My Bible and The Bill Of Rights
My creed’s equality
A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream from sea to shining sea

It’s clear my country’s soul is on the line
She’s hungering for something that she lost along the way
The principle the framers called upon us to obey
That in this land
The people’s will must have the upper hand

I felt the calling once before and took a sacred vow
And faithful to that vow I have remained
I hear the calling once again, my country needs me now
And to her cause I have been re-ordained

I’m a Born Again American conceived in liberty
My Bible and the Bill Of Rights, all people living free
A Born Again American, my country ‘tis of me
And everyone who shares the dream
From sea to shining sea
And everyone who shares the dream
From sea to shining sea
