Chance The Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time last night and while the show was great his “Come Back, Barack” song hit a little too close to home for many viewers judging by the response on social media.

Chance has been the musical guest on SNL twice in the past and he still brought the tunes to his hosting gig. He opened the show with a funny holiday song titled, “It’s Thanksgiving Time” which was performed in part to raise the $1 million he has pledged to schools in Chicago.

“I talked to my accountant, and I do not have it,” he laughed.

According to Chance he thought a Thanksgiving song would be a good choice since it’s not a holiday known for having the best songs.

“Mariah Carey is at that (Rockefeller Center) tree-lighting every year singing All I want for Christmas Is You, and it’s not because she loves giant trees,” he stated. “It’s because she loves having a third assistant whose only job is yelling at the second assistant.”

The lyrics to the Thanksgiving song were on point, “It’s Thanksgiving Time, the one day a year/Where you invite the folks, that you normally fear. It’s Thanksgiving Time, where you are forced to see/Every single bad apple, on your whole family tree.”

That wasn’t the only song he sang. In a previously taped bit Chance was joined by Redd and Kenan Thompson and they played an R&B trio, De-Von-Tre, making a music video called “Come Back.”

It sounded like an ode to a lost lover and the lyrics went, “Every night, I turn the TV on and cry/I say, ‘Why?’ I feel like we’re all gonna die.”

Then they showed who it was they were singing the song to and it was Barack Obama.

“So, come back, Barack, even though he’s not allowed/We want you back somehow/I need you in my life.”
