Dear Mr President

Title: Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President
Come take a walk with me
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly
What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep
What do you feel when you look in the mirror
Are you proud
How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why
Dear Mr. President
Were you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
How can you say
No child is left behind
We're not dumb and we're not blind
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell
What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine
How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye
Let me tell you bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don't know nothing bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh
How do you sleep at night
How do you walk with your head held high
Dear Mr. President


You'd never take a walk with me
Would you





Dear Mr. President,

Ini adalah sebuah lagu teruntuk Pak president kita yang terhormat, atau untuk siapapun yang merasa bahwa dirinya adalah wakil rakyat. Lihat dan perhatikan rakyatmu, wahai kamu sekalian yang makan gaji rakyat. Betapa empuknya kasur yang kalian tiduri tiap malam, betapa nyamannya rumah yang kalian dirikan, betapa hebatnya anak-anak kalian yang bisa kalian sekolahkan sampai ke luar negri. Betapa nikmat makanan yang bisa kalian makan setiap hari.

Coba kalian liat potret kehidupan yang ada di sekeliling kalian, jangan hanya kalian melihat orang yang lebih kaya atau lebih hebat dari kalian, coba lah kalian untuk lebih peduli dengan orang-orang kecil itu. Karena mereka adalah saudara kalian juga.

Thanks and Best Regard
