Protestors pay $5,000 and sing Pvt. Bradley Manning song at Obama fundraiser

Barack Obama fundraiser party guests surprise Obama with song in sympathy for Pvt. Bradley Manning of wiki-leaks fame.
(They paid $5,000 a piece for privilege of being close to Obama and raising a mild ruckus.)
Lyrics of ditty that they sang [from Atlantic Wire and Yahoo News:
Dear Mr. President we honor you today sir
Each of us brought you $5,000
It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign
I paid my dues, where's our change?
We'll vote for you in 2012, yes that's true
Look at the Republicans - what else can we do
Even though we don't know if we'll retain our liberties
In what you seem content to call a free society
Yes it's true that Terry Jones is legally free
To burn a people's holy book in shameful effigy
But at another location in this country
Alone in a 6x12 cell sits Bradley
23 hours a day is night
The 5th and 8th Amendments say this kind of thing ain't right
We paid our dues, where's our change?
