Mr. President

This song is by Janelle Monáe and appears on the EP Metropolis: Suite I (The Chase) (2007) and on the Australian tour edition of the album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) (2010).

This song is for my mama
This song is for you

Hey, Mr. President
Tomorrow I'm paying my rent
My fuel is running low
And I've got places to go
Quit slowing me down

Can we talk about the education of our children?
A book is worth more than a bomb any day
And remember a mirror to Africa
Who will bring the cure before it's too late?

Don't you see the hurt in their eyes?
So much disappointment in many faces
Use your heart and not your pride
We can't go on and keep pretending, oh

Please, Mr. President
Where's all the money you spent?
Food is falling low
And they have nowhere to go
Quit slowing me down

I ask you to have mercy on us, Father
You'd think we'd know the rules by now
We can't go starting wars with hearts of hatred
Our nation's greed won't make it better
Or quiet the fears in our hearts

Don't you see the hurt in their eyes?
So much disappointment in all of their faces
Use your heart and not your pride
We can't go on and keep pretending

Oh please, Mr. President

Dear Mr. President
I hope you got the letter I sent
A dollar only goes so far
And we need health care no matter who we are
See we come from different worlds and different places
Until there's one great land
One nation under God
Times are getting harder
And we need you to be like Moses
And lead your people through
Please be careful
Be careful
Of what you do, what you do
