To the tune of...

(Lead: Barack Hussein Obama)

I don't wanna talk
About the things I’ve not gone through
Though it's hurting me
That’s how it has to be
I've played all my cards
And that's what you've done too
Nothing more to say
Call a spade a spade

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
It is Black History
Don’t mess with destiny

I was in your race
Thinking I belonged there
I thought it was my place
But I was disgraced
Things were whispered, things were said
And I did not belong there
I was just a fool
Playing by the rules

Black alone does not suffice
You must have paid the price
(Or at least your family did)
Otherwise there’s no street cred
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
“’Cause I am an “African
African American

But tell me does it quack
Like the duck I once knew?
Why does it feel the same
When the “N” word’s used in vein?
Somewhere deep inside
You know that I’m just like you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

Al Sharpton will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
It’s “Paparazzi Go!”
The game is on again
Frenemies I’ll defend
Campaigns in shopping malls
The winner takes it all

I now can see so far
To “The End of Blackness
And I understand
My pigment is quite bland
I apologize
If I made you feel bad
Seeing me so white
At the fundraiser tonight
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all...
