If I was a President you know what I'd do?

You know, if I was President
I'd ask all the people what they want
I'd try to find out what the people want

You can't get something for nothing (x4)

Everybody wants somebody sometime

Everybody wants somebody sometime

If your think you can get it for nothing
well baby you're mistaken
'cause in this whole life
you can't get something for nothing, no, no
you can't get something for nothing...
