Audience [roar overlaid by a lilting guitar]

Obama : We've been told we're not ready, or that we shouldn't try, or that we can't. Generations of Americans have responded, with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people: "Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can."

Audience [chants with soft guitar overlay] "Yes We Can."

Fojeba : Ready to Go. Ready to Go. [repeated over and over]

Obama : And if one voice can change a room, it can change a city, and if it can change a city, it can change a state, and if it can change a state it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation, it can change the world. One voice can change the world! So we just want to know one thing: Are You Fired Up? [Crowd roars. ]
