Originally a school assignment to write a ballad was inspired by rumors about President Barack Obama's and First Lady Michelle Obama's relationship.

Rumors fly around like mosquitoes

That never go away.

How I wish I never knew love,

'Cause all you've done is betray.


You never thought that I'd see you,

But I've got eyes and ain't blind.

I've seen the looks you've cast at those

Women, but bear in mind


That I don't need you anymore;

Betrayal hurts for a while

But later on I'll get along, yet

Those rumors will be a trail.


The publicly is so much to bear,

My husband leads the nation.

Too far from me, too close to others,

You deserve damnation.


The only reason I stayed with you

Is because I cared for

My daughters, the roses from thorns.

But know that this is war


And I don't need you anymore;

Betrayal hurts for a while

But later on I'll get along, yet

Those rumors will be a trail.


Yet as the sun goes down tonight

I'll let my anger go

'Cause even though I've been betrayed

In my heart my love still flows


But I don't need you anymore;

Betrayal hurts for a while

But later on I'll get along, yet

Those rumors will be a trail.


I don't need you anymore;

Betrayal hurts for a while

But later on I'll get along, yet

Those rumors will be a trail.
