You Can Vote However You Like

I love this! 6th and 7th graders from Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta performed live on CNN last week singing “You Can Vote However You Like.” It’s their parody of TI’s “Whatever You Like,” where they debate the issues for both candidates. TI even visited the school recently to hear them perform the song. These kids are so intelligent, and their teacher Ron Clark, also the founder of the school, is wonderful to let them learn in such a creative way. See their entire performance with their teacher, learn more about the school and see lyrics below. Remember to go to the polls, and vote whatever you like.

Here is more about Ron Clark Academy found on Atlanta’s PBS website:

“Atlanta became home to the Ron Clark Academy in 2007. Combining state-of-the-art facilities, innovative instruction, and creative, dynamic teachers, the Academy offers a world-class education to not only inner-city kids, but also to visiting teachers from around the world. Educators learn new methods as kids from all ability levels and economic backgrounds get a one-of-a-kind school experience. And, the learning experience extends beyond the brightly-colored walls of the Academy; before the students leave the school in eighth grade, they will pursue a global education that takes them to six of the seven continents.”

The school sounds amazing. I just read about Ron Clark as well, and his story really inspiring! Here is a short bio from the school’s website:

Ron Clark, Founder and Mathematics Teacher

“Ron Clark has been called “America’s Educator.” In 2000, he was named Disney’s American Teacher of the Year (Watch this inspirational video about him). He is a New York Times bestselling author whose book, The Essential 55, has sold over 1 million copies and has been published in 25 different countries. He has been featured on The Today Show, CNN, and Oprah, and Ms. Winfrey even named him as her first “Phenomenal Man.” His classes have been honored at the White House on three separate occasions. Ron’s teaching experiences in New York City are the subject of the uplifting film, The Ron Clark Story, starring Matthew Perry, better known as Chandler from Friends.”

Lyrics from Youtube:
Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

(McCain supporters)
McCain is the man
Fought for us in Vietnam
You know if anyone can
Help our country he can
Taxes droppin’ low
Don’t you know oils gonna flow
Drill it low
I’ll show our economy will grow

McCain’s the best candidate
With Palin as his running mate
They’ll fight for gun rights, pro life,
The conservative right
Our future is bright
Better economy in site
And all the world will feel our military might

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obama’s new, he’s younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
He’ll bring a change, he’s got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq’s a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes – you know Obama Won’t
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS – You know McCain won’t!
Have enough experience – you know that they don’t
STOP GLOBAL WARMING – you know that you won’t

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA
Stick with McCain and you’re going to have some drama
We need it
HE’LL BRING IT
He’ll be it
YOU’LL SEE IT
We’ll do it
GET TO IT
Let’s move it
DO IT!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

I’m talking big pipe lines, and low gas prices

But to do it right we gotta start today
Finding renewable ways that are here to stay

Stick wit McCain you gone have some drama
MORE WAR IN IRAQ

And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah
