  • Yeah, Election time's coming.
    who you gonna vote for
    Yeah

    If I was President,
    I'd get elected on Friday,
    Assasinated on Saturday,
    Burried on Sunday,
    They 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,
    Cos I know some so poor, when it rains that's when they shower
    Screamin' "Fight the power!" That's when the vulture devours.

    If I was President,
    I'd get elected on Friday,
    Assasinated on Saturday,
    Burried on Sunday,
    They go back to work on Monday
    If I was President, If I was President, If I was President yea

    I know some soldiers that sleep but they can't dream,
    Wake up with screams, sounds of M16,
    So take this medal of honour, for your bravery,
    I wish you the best care, for you and your family

    If I was President,
    I'd get elected on Friday,
    Assasinated on Saturday,
    Burried on Sunday,
    They go back tp work on Monday
    If I was President, If I was President, If I was President

    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 Zirconian
    Tell them the truth yea, the truth.
    Your Soul is worth more than Diamonds and Gold.

    If I was president, all blacks would have reperations
    No segregation, feed the nation so there's no famine,
    Muslims, Jews, Chritians would all hold hands,
    Every week on the beach, party by the sand,
    (I woulda) Take trips on Air Force 1,
    Don't need to bring no homeless with no sneaks, da Air Force 1,
    Better Schools in the hood, better teacher's for the classes,
    Making money, paying no taxes,
    I'd find the best scientists, tell them come up with an answer,
    I want the cure for Aids and Cancer,
    But I gotta watch my back, snipers on the hill,
    With the steal, waiting to J.F.Kill.

    IF I was President,
    I'd get elected on Friday,
    Assasinated on Saturday,
    Burried on Sunday,
    Thay go back to work on Monday,
    If I was President, If I was President.

    I hear the rain comin, let me play my guitar for them right now.. let's go
