Earlier this week, a Virginia-based organization came under fire for leading 3rd grade students at Woodbrook Elementary in Charlottesville to write a song titled “We Are Part of the 99.”

The song, with its reference to the 1 percent and 99 percent was obviously talking about the Occupy protests that occurred around the country.

According to the school district’s story, the students wrote:

I used to be part of the 1 percent

I worked all the time

Never saw my family

Couldn’t make life rhyme

Then the bubble burst

When I was in 3rd grade, I knew about bubbles in the bath, not housing bubbles.

Now another video has emerged which was produced by Kid Pan Alley, the same organization that “helped” the students write the Occupy song.

Posted a couple weeks prior to Barack Obama’s inauguration, the organization posted a video of a song written by 2nd graders in Fairfax County, Virginia.

Titled “Inauguration,” here are the lyrics:

It feels like it’s been winter for a hundred years

The world is as cold as the white snow

The birds have been wondering if it’s safe to return

We’ve all been hibernating way too long

But now we’ve got the power – we’re no longer cowards

We’ll have a brand new song

Now we’re ready to shed our old skin

We’re ready for a brand new day

Ready for peace – ready for spring

Ready for freedom – let freedom ring

Welcome Barack Obama

He’ll save the day – hip hip hooray

If President Obama came to our school

I’d show him all the work I’ve done

To make peace for all the children in the world

Growing happiness for everyone

But now we’ve got the power – we’re no longer cowards

It’s time to have some fun

Now we’re ready to shed our old skin

We’re ready for a brand new day

Ready for peace – ready for spring

Ready for freedom – let freedom ring

Welcome Barack Obama

He’ll save the day – hip hip hooray

Welcome Barack Obama

He’ll save the day – hip hip hooray

Barack Obama – hip hip hooray

Barack Obama – hip hip hooray

Barack Obama – hip hip hooray

Barack Obama!
