Yeah, election time's comin'
Who you gon' vote for?
Yeah

If I was President
I'd get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
They go back to work on Monday

If I was President
If I was President
If I was President

Instead of spendin' billions on the war
I can use that money, so I can feed the poor
'Cause I know some so poor
When it rains, that's when they shower
Screamin', "Fight the power"
That's when the vulture devoured

If I was President
I'd get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
They go back to work on Monday

If I was President
If I was President
If I was President

I know some soldiers
That sleep, but they can't dream
Wake up with screams
Sounds of M-16s
So take this medal of honor
For your bravery
I wish you the best kid
You and your family

If I was President
I'd get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
They go back to 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 zirconium
Tell them the truth, the truth, yeah
Your soul is worth more than diamonds and gold

If I was President, all Blacks will have reparation, no segregation
Feed the nation 'til there is no famine
Muslims, Jews, Christians would all hold hands
Every week on the beach, party by the sand, word up

Take trips on Air Force One
No need to bring the homeless
With no sneaks to Air Force One
Better schools in the hood
Better teachers for the classes
Makin' money, payin' no taxes

Find the best scientists, tell 'em
"Come up with the answer
I want the cure for AIDS and Cancer"
But I gotta watch my back
Snipers on the hill, with the steel
Man power, waitin' to JF kill

If I was President
I'd get elected on Friday
Assassinated on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
They go back to work on Monday

If I was President
If I was President

I feel a ring comin'
Let me play my guitar for them right now
Let's go
Refugees
Yeah
