Dear Mr. Man

This song is by Prince and appears on the album Musicology (2004).

What's wrong with the world 2day?
Things just got 2 get better
Show me what the leaders say
Maybe we should write a letter

Said Dear Mr. Man
We don't understand
Why poor people keep struggling
But U don't lend a helping hand

Matthew 5:5 say
"The meek shall inherit the earth"
We wanna b down that way
But U been trippin' since the day of your birth

Who said that
2 kill is a sin
Then started every single war
That Ur people been in?

Who said that water
Is a precious commodity
Then dropped a big old black oil slick
In the deep blue sea?

Who told me, Mr. Man
That working round the clock
Would buy me a big housed in the hood
Cigarette ads on every block

Who told me, Mr. Man
That Eye got a right 2 moan?
How about this big old hole
In the ozone?

What's wrong with the world 2day
Things just got 2 get better
Dear Mr. Man, we don't understand
Maybe we should write a letter

Listen, ain't no sense in voting
Same song with a different name
Might not b in the back of the bus
But it sure feel just the same

Ain't nothing fair about welfare
Ain't no assistance in AIDS
We ain't that affirmative about your actions
Until the people get paid

Ur thousand years r up
Now U got 2 share the land
Section 1 - the 14th amendment says
"No state shall deprive any person of life,
liberty, or property, without due process of law"
Mr. Man, we want 2 end this letter with 3 words
We tired a-y'all

Tired, tired
Tired
Dear Mr. Man
Hey

What's wrong with the world 2day
Things just got 2 get better
