If I Were The President

If I were the President, this would be the best nation in which to live
I would be sensitive to the needs of the people...
Instead of having them...give, give, and give
I would serve the people by doing what's best for all to live, and let live
Who is best for the country... Democrat, Republican, or Independent
Well...they are all the same, no matter what they claim
They are only interested in political fame, and spreading his name
And big money always comes with his political fame
Yes, he will work for you, if you let him do whatever he wants...
Or you are his family, friend, or supports what he wants
Congress makes the laws, but that should be done by all the people
For what they do, fits only them, and a few...
But not in the best interest of the people... you
Most say they want a national health care plan
But they don't want to give it to me, and you
They already have it, for them... but what about, me and you
Why won't they say, well we won't have it until we can give it to you too
They make the laws you know, so if they work for all the people
Why don't they give up some of their goodies
And pass them on to those in need... you and me
Then let us see... you really work for the people... you and me
We hear a lot of talk from you from year to year
So if the people of this country are to you, so dear
Start working to make it better for all...
Not just for only those to you, that are near
I'm crying out to you, these words, I hope you hear
This country needs people who will serve, and be true
To all of it's people...not merely a few
Here, I have tried to simply convey, this much needed message to you
I would work hard, to make our nation, the envy of the world
Not by talking, but by all working together, our nation would be a pearl
Yes, it's true, this nation is great, and would be greater too
If congress truly, worked for you... and I tell you
That's what I would do for you...
If I were the President
