Dear Mr. President with all due respect
I wish we could have a conversation
I would take a trip done to your residence
So we could talk about the state of the nation
Mr. President
I would ask you about the war
Really and truly what is it for?
When an IED makes a soldier fall
Is he dyin'' for somethin' above us all?
Is it all about oil at end of the day?
Is the pledge of allegiance just something say?
I hope not I love The USA
In spite of all drama we have today
Mr. President are you aware
Our flesh and blood is dying over there
When the coffins come back
Do you care?
When only the poor kids die
Is it fair?

[Chorus] [Wyclef Jean]
If I could talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If I said something intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it's time time time
For me to speak my mind mind mind

[Verse 2][LL Cool J]
Don't get me wrong
I respect the flag
But it hurts to see a kid in a body bag
He fought for his country with all he had
Now we have a family without a dad
Lil mama cryin' the kids are scared
9/11 why we were unprepared?
Mr. President,
Are you aware unless you're rich, you have poor health care
It makes you scream and want to pull out your hair
Discharged from hospitals soon as you get there.
Mr. President truth or dare
Terrorist is hiding do you know where?
Illegal immigrants are everywhere
Is it really their fault they wanted to come here?
I respect you please be clear
Talk with me
Show the people you care

[Chorus][Wyclef Jean]
If I could talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If I said something intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it's Time time time
For me to speak my mind mind mind

[Bridge][Wyclef Jean]
What am I to do
I've been waitin' on you
Tell me something that just make sense
You sent us off to war
Please be honest what it's for
Doesn't matter is life or death
Yeah

[Verse 3][LL Cool J]
I'm not republican or democrat
I'm independent, and I want the facts
When are the soldiers come back?
Are we prepared for a terrorist attack?
Late at night I watch CNN
Gets so bad I might stop breathin'
The Middle East hates us
What's the reason?
Mr. President
My heart is bleeding
I tuck my kids in every evenin'
Try to teach them to keep believin'
Hopin' my government won't deceive them
Tell'em set some goals you can achieve them
Mr. President
I have to know if die for you
What will have to show?
Will it truly help my country grow
I'm waitinn' for your answer let me know

[Chorus][Wyclef Jean]
If I can talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If said somethin' intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it's time time time
To speak my mind mind mind

Now it's Time time time
To speak my mind mind mind (repeat)
