Yeah, Election time's comin
Who you gonna vote for, yeah

If I was president
I'd get elected on Friday
Assassignated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
Then go back to work on Monday
If I was president
If I was president
If I was president, yeah

Instead of spendin billions on the war
I can use that money
So I can feed the poor
Cuz I know some so poor
When it rains that's when dey shower
Screamin fight the power
That's when the vulture devours


I know some soldiers
That sleep but they can't dream
Wake up with screams
Sounds of M-16's
So take this medal of honor
For your bravery
I wish you the best kid
You and your family


But the radio won't play this
They call it rebel music
How can you refuse it
Children of Moses
Tell the children the truth, the truth
It's not all that bling that's diamonds
Tell them the truth, the truth
Most of y'all wear cubic zirconium
Tell them the truth, the truth
Your soul is worth more than diamonds or gold

If I was president all blacks would have reparation
No segregation feed the nation so there's no famine
Muslims Jews Christians would all hold hands
Every week on the beach party by the sand
Word up, take trips on air force one
Need to bring the homeless with no skeaks the air force ones
Better schools in the hood better teachers for the classes
Making money payin no taxes
Find the best scientists come up with an answer
I wantthe cure for AIDS and cancer
But I better watch my back sniper on the hill
With the still waitin to J-F-Kill

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