Dear Mr. President

 

P!nkIf you wrote a letter to President Bush what would you tell him. He most likely wouldn’t read it but lets pretend for a moment that he would. What would you want him to hear about the state of the nation and the world from you. The singer Pink wrote a song in this vein. Dear Mr. President is her personal letter to the President.

I think this song is almost perfect on its own, but several people have taken the song and added their own images to it in order to deliver their own unique messages to Dear Mr. President. Lets take a look!

There are many more of course, these are just a few examples.

The lyrics

Dear Mr. President
Come take a walk with me
Let’s pretend we’re just two people and
You’re not better than me
I’d like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep
What do you feel when you look in the mirror
Are you proud

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why

Dear Mr. President
Were you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
How can you say
No child is left behind
We’re not dumb and we’re not blind
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye

Let me tell you bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don’t know nothing bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night
How do you walk with your head held high
Dear Mr. President
You’d never take a walk with me
Would you

    I’m not a fan of this singer, but I have to say that this is now the new song on my MYSPACE page and will be there for as long as it takes. I’m also posting the link to this page so that everyone I know can see these videos. How can anyone watch these and not be affected??? He really doesn’t see does he?
