(CNN) – Fans of nearly every NBA team would love to see Cleveland Cavalier great LeBron James in their uniform next year, but Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Gov. Ted Strickland are trying to make sure that doesn’t happen.
The two politicians, along with a handful of other Ohio celebrities, star in a new web video imploring the NBA MVP to remain in Cleveland.
The video, a parody of the 1985 charity single “We Are the World,” features Brown and Strickland, among others, belting such lyrics as “Please stay LeBron, We really need you. No bigger market's gonna love you half as much as we do.”

Please stay LeBron, we really need you.
There comes a time, when a decision must be made Will the King, move on or will he stay?
We're helplessly waiting, as we hold our breath in fear. Should we renew, our tickets for next year?
Please stay LeBron, We really need you No bigger market's gonna love you half as much as we do. It's a choice you're making, will you go or will you stay....
What will we do with that big sign, if you move away? Just tell us King, what changes we must make, We'll rename every street 'LeBron' if that's what it takes.... New York's overcrowded, Those people are unbearable, And don't forget, the Knicks and Nets are terrible....
Please stay LeBron, we really need you, No bigger market's gonna love you half as much as we do...
