Alicia Keys Rewrites Lyrics to Sing Ode, ‘Obama’s on Fire’

During the Commander In Chief’s Ball last night, singer Alicia Keys changed the words of her hit song “Girl on Fire” into “Obama’s on Fire” to celebrate the President’s inauguration. Lyrics below:

Obama’s on fire,

Obama’s on fire 

He’s walking on fire 

Obama’s on fire 

Everybody stares as he goes by

Because they can see the flames in his eyes

Watch him as he lights up the night

Everybody knows that Michelle is his girl

Together they run the world

And we gon’ let it burn, baby, burn, baby.
