One candidate's father was not born in America
He came here and got on welfare even scarier
His religion is different not Christian like the tradition
Plus he went to Harvard for law and business now listen
This might shock you so I'm gonna say it calmly
That candidates name is Mitt Romney
But out of his own mouth he was first to mention it
Nobody ever asked to see his birth certificate
Now is this just coincidence?
Or is because of what the color of his pigment is
Is this a incident of benefit
Cause of the skin he's in he automatically a citizen
Even though his father was a Mexican immigrant
Who was once a part of those 47 percentages
A lesson to the ignorant this place that we're living in
Your race can be a privilege, point blank period
Now go vote
