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?


I love this song, wonder if any of you have heard it? And what do you think about it? I rarely post song lyrics but this one really got to me.

Regards,
Kris

Hmmm....an anti-conservative song written by a Hollywood Liberal? Rarely does that happen. ..lol. It's a good song, but president Bush cannot be blamed for homelessness. I am pleading the 5th as to my political position, but songwriters have long used music as a venue for expressing their political positions. And I am a huge fan of Pink btw.

Pope By Prince!

(U don't understand, I ain't scared of u mutha fuckas) {Kick it!}
(Stir it like coffee)
The Pope
(Stir it like muthafuckin' coffee)
The Pope
(The hell)
This is the Pope

Oh, your car got mags that be dippy dippy dope
But the whole damn nation got the same
Honey only flock 2 the bee that's the Pope
Not the President with government lame

Put me on a slow movin' parlimentary hackin' bandwagon
U could put me little ass in the grave
Everytime u want it I'll be live, bring a date
I mean computer when its over press save

So u can be the President (U can be the President) {Kick it}
I'd rather be the Pope (Rather be the Pope)
(I'd rather be... so happy)
Yeah u can be the side effect (U can be the side effect)
I'd rather be the dope (Rather be the dope)
(I ain't scared of u mutha fuckers) {Kick it}

Call your girl named Sally and u figure u were chill (Chill)
Then u find out I'm the reason Sally's on the Pill (Pill)
What am I supposed to do when the President can't get nothing passed
Find an alley, find an alley
Undress Sally right in front of your ass
(Well she helped me once again)

I say u can be the President (U can be the President) {Kick it}
I'd rather be the Pope (Rather be the Pope)
(I'd rather be... so help me)
Yeah u can be the side effect (U can be the side effect)
I'd rather be the dope (Rather be the dope)
(Fuck that)
The Pope
(Oh no motherfucker, not today)

Pope
U can be the President (Rather be the Pope)
So help me

Who's the funky drummer with the crooked little sticks (Sticks)
He might have better luck if he was drummin' with his dick (Dick?)
If u don't play the piccolo, why u wanna lick?
(Ch-check) Now check the drum solo and tell me not to kick it

(Seek and destroy. It'll fuck u up)

I love the taste of unpredictable licks

A loop is a loop is a loop
A loop is a loop is a loop {Fuck that}
A loop is a loop is a loop is a loop is a loop is a loop is a loop

Your car got mags that be dippy dippy dope
But the whole damn nation got the same
Honey only flock 2 the bee that's the Pope
Not the President with government lame

Put me on a slow movin' parlimentary hackin' bandwagon
U could put me little ass in the grave
Everytime u want it I'll be live, bring a date
I mean computer when its over press save

(So) So u can be the president (U can be the President) {Kick it}
I'd rather be the pope (Rather be the Pope)
(I wanna be... so happy)
U can be the side effect (U can be the side effect)
I'd rather be the dope (U, u, u) {U can be the dope}
The Pope

U can be the President (Fuck that)
Rather be the Pope
Baby, so help me please

Press Save
I Love u
Peace
(U don't understand)

I respect her as far as she has a right to her opinion just like you and me. She also has the right to freedom of speech etc. to sing this song. BUT...... I guess I differ in the sense that although I may not agree with every move the president makes, has made, or will make in his last year in office, I also have a very high level of respect for him as the leader of our country, and I would not say anything negative about him, or any other elected president.

Wow, I liked the lyrics, so I checked out the song on youtube. I was never a Pink fan because I thought she was like all those other girl bands: Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson and whoever the fuck else. I really liked that song. You encourage me to check out more songs by her. I gave you a kudo. Thank You.

I just found this post and want to put in my two cents. Ok, I'm not that rich. I'll put in my penny. I'm more pissed that this guy sends us to war and wont let us win. Mission complete my ass! I'm going to pick up my cane and my broken (war ravaged) body and vote for Steven Colbert in the next election.
