My political hero


There's something about him
There's something about him

It’s not just his looks
Or the fact he’s a great cook
How do I fathom a man?
That is a tremendous success

I say this not to impress
When you hear him address congress
With words so tantalizing even to the press
You may agree and confess to his greatness

There's something about him
There's something about him

A man of the people
So gentle and simple
Gifted with imagination
Passionate with dedication
Master of the political game
A man with vision
And one on a mission

Somewhere in my head
I know it might sound weird
It is nothing to do with the bed
He is my political hero
Political hero of tomorrow

Political hero!
Political hero!
My political hero
Future leader of tomorrow
I praise thy name
Even if you can’t hear
I praise it all the same

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
