Rosa Sat Lyrics


Rosa sat, so Martin could walk
Martin walked, so Barack could run
Barack ran, he ran and he won
So that all our children could fly

Thousands of people that November night
All of us here who had fought the long fight
Knowing as one we’re creating a new nation
Join together in celebration!


Mother and daughter listening to the news
Momma breaks down crying, little girl is confused
Honey we worked so hard to get to this place
Daughter puts a loving hand on Momma’s face


Mr. Obama all eyes turn to you
Share with the country what you’re gonna do
Wars and foreclosures surround us this year
But Yes We Can! rise above our fears

Chorus (2x)
