"If I Was President" as written by and Jerry Duplessis Wyclef Jean....
She say she gon' be the first and the next
To lead the eagle out the nest
A man say he gon' build a wall
And have Mexico pay for it all
And there's a riots every week
Their uniforms blue and the peoples on the streets
And everyone's living on the edge
'Cause you could be the next one walking with the dead

If I was president
I'll get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
And on Monday everybody goes back to work
It's just an ordinary day
Ay, but I could be the president, and you could be the president
And she could be the president, and we could be the president

Her t-shirt says "Black Lives Matter"
The media is screaming all lives matter
Charlie got a gun up in his hands
Walk up into the school and then you hear the bang bang
And Suzanna from Alabama can't walk no more
'Cause she lost two legs in a war
And the USA they looking for the peace
All y'all got to do is smoke a little bit of weed
They don't want me to tell you about the secrecy
They don't want me to tell you about the conspiracy
They want to put a hole in my head like Kennedy

If I was president
Get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
And on Monday everybody goes back to work
It's just an ordinary day
Ay, but I could be the president, and you could be the president
And she could be the president, and we could be the president

If I was president

    General CommentThese are the lyrics off the version from the Chapelle's Show.. if someone wants to put up the ones from the CD they can go ahead, because I don't want to

    I prefer the Chapelle's Show version though..

    General Commentit's "they" go back to work on monday. not "then". i wouldn't micromanage but it kind of makes a huge difference in the meaning of the song.

    General Commentmusically, a great song; very impassioned...the lyrics? comically naive but the gist is very noble
