Jeffrey Lewis has paid tribute to Barack Obama by writing a song about his life.

The song, uploaded shortly before Obama won the US presidential election, takes in his Hawaiian roots, his studies at Harvard and his time as a lecturer at the University Of Chicago law school.

In the video, Lewis is seen performing the song while holding a picture book filled with his cartoons of the president-elect.


Lewis ends the song by singing: “What happens next is a guess, but I’m hoping that yes / Barack Obama will become a great president of our nation.”
