"Dear Mr. President"
( PINK feat. Indigo Girls)

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

She is really coming out with this thought provoking songs. The other one is called "stupid", and it's about girls who grow up in this celebrity crazy world wanting to be just like them and also about celebrities who sell "stupidity". I really enjoy the lyrics to this Mr.President song, and they are so sad yet true.

I heard the stupid girls too. Although, I gotta say she has come a long way..

This is so powerful! If this isn't the ralleying cry to impeach Bush I don't know what song would reach people more! GO PINK!

This song is so shallow. Does she expect the President to fix everything? Does she think he can?

I'd like to see her step into Bush's shoes. How would she fare, I wonder?
