Pink featuring Indigo Girls - Dear Mr. President - WELL DONE Ladies!

(do the right click save on this mp3 it doesn't stream very well)

"Dear Mr. President"
(feat. Indigo Girls)

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 pay 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

4. No, it wouldn't affect him. You have to be able to empathize.
Edited on Tue Apr-04-06 01:10 PM by indie_voter
He is incapable of that.

17. But let's not forget how bad he felt for Trent Lott.
Wonder if his beautiful house is rebuilt so GW and sit on his porch?

23. Barbara could bring her beautiful mind and sit on Lott's beautiful porch.
While they watch beautiful bodies float by.

Proof is when he can laugh it up while troops are dying in his war.

9. Best verse is this one..
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

11. Pink is an amazing artist really
Edited on Tue Apr-04-06 01:16 PM by sdfernando
I know a lot of you don't care for her popular stuff. I think it is a means to an end for her. Listen to her other songs and music and you'll hear an incredible range of styles. She can do amazing things with her voice, changing the quality and timbre to suit the songs she's singing. Listen to some of her less known interviews, she likes to stick to the major labels, but does it in a subtle way. I always knew she was politically progressive. I can't wait to hear this piece!

Edited for spelling!

I have it... the other GREAT song is called Stupid Girls.... this is Pink's best album yet.

Can we get one more Rec for Greatest so the night time DUers can hear this.

you would have to go out and buy LOTS of copies of the single.

29. Thank you for this KyndCulture
My husband and I NEVER miss the Indigo Girls in concert when they are up here (Seattle), they are our number one singer songwriters.

And I was unfamiliar with Pink, but thanks to you not anymore!!!

33. Great article! I have a friend whose dad is a Vietnam Vet who
is a blind follower of Bush. My friend is a liberal. He can't talk to his dad about anything remotely close to politics. I'll send him this song - who knows...

38. Is this song getting air time? Heart wrenching, the IG's have always
been one of my favorites. Looks like I'll be buying a CD since I haven't been inspired by anything since MOSH.
