At Last

A very dark rewrite of the Etta James classic from the  viewpoint of ghosts of past time slaves. Not meant in any way to offend. 

At last
A real leader has come along
Our slavely days are over
And all that white has done wrong
Soon will be put right

Oh yeah yeah
At last

No longer must we be beaten black and blue
Our hearts and desires buried six feet under
Yes, indeed the dream has come true
At last

He's a dream, a dream willing to speak up and for
A dream that only our people are truly entitled to call our own
He's a thrill that will allow us to stick it to them
To all those that have done wrong, so wrong
Through all these long, hurtful years
We're gonna give 'em a hell now
Like their rich snobby....have never known

Oh yeah yeah
We're smiling, we are smiling
Oh and now the die has been cast
And here we are
Finally gonna be able to get 'em
For revenge is ours
All thanks to him

At last
