Then Redd revealed who they were singing to, as he looked lovingly at a picture of former President Barack Obama, which drew big applause from the studio audience.

Chance the Rapper was the host of Saturday Night Live.

Starring SNL's Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd also known as De-Von-Tre, the group sang their hearts out as they pleaded with 44 to return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Chance said he saw an opening for a Thanksgiving song, since Turkey Day isn't known for musical hits.

And it only got better from there.




"We didn't know what we had", the song continues. Now, for purposes of comparison, here's the video for Boyz II Men's "End of the Road", which, as you've probably forgotten, has an even more embarrassing spoken verse than "Come Back Barack".

"We didn't know just what we had", the chorus went. "Like. really bad, like world war bad, like nuclear bad".

Other lines included, "I'm in hell, dreaming about you and Michelle", and "2020's looking bad".

Later in the night Chance broke out into song again for a sketch that turned out to be one of the breakout moments of the night.

"I want to be the Mariah Carey of Thanksgiving", Chance declared, at which point, cast members from SNL began joining him on stage for a hilarious, gospel-style song about the joys and perils of Thanksgiving.
