Obama and MLK: Extra Fly
August 29, 2008
I gotta testify, come up in the spot looking extra flyI couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get into the party where Kanye played here in Denver but this song was running through my mind when I first woke. Damn, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m tearing up just writing this. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even have the words to describe my emotions after Barack ObamaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s speech Ã¢â‚¬â€ hearing the stirring music, seeing Michelle Obama and the girls join him on stage, hearing the fireworks explode overhead matching the explosion in my heart.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœFore the day I die, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ma touch the sky
Sky, Sky high
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sky high
Yeah! (Keep it rolling)
(Feels good to be home, baby! Feels good to be home!)Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Kanye West, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Touch the SkyÃ¢â‚¬Â
