Dear Mr. President

4 Non Blondes


I'm looking outside of my window
The view that I see
Is a child and mama
And the child is begging for money

Tell me why, tell me why
The woman is blind
Is she so broke
The kid's dealing crime?

It's such a beautiful city
But the world is burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's such a beautiful city
But the world is burning it down

I go to my room to turn on the TV
I sit myself down
And I start laughing hard
'Cause this man, he's asking for money
He says: If you send me lots of cash
I'll send you stuff to make you rich fast

It's such a wonderful country
But the man, he's burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's such a wonderful country
But the man, he's burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And it's burning down
And it's called the US of A

One day I'm going to have lots of money
But I'll have to give it up
For this rich society
Oh, please, Mr. President
Won't you lend me a future?

'Cause you'll just get it back
From the little blind woman
With the kid on the corner
And the people all over, doin' crack

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's such a wonderful country
But the man, he's burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And it's burning down
And it's called the US of A, uh, mmm

I'm walking outside on a sunny day
With no one around
And I wonder what's wrong
The I hear this loud piercing siren

Oh, my God, the bomb has just dropped
And everybody climbed right on top
Screaming, what a wonderful country
But the man, he's burning it down
He's burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
It's such a wonderful country
But the man, he's burning it down
He's burning it down

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And it's burning down
And it's called the US of A

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
