Song Released: 2006
Featuring: Indigo Girls
Dear Mr. President Lyrics
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?

This song was aimed at George. W. Bush. This song basically speaks for itself. She is disguisted about how little help George gave the world, and is like a letter telling him to realise that there are a lot of undeserved people living on the streets, and children who have their own rights taken from them. He basically is sitting back and watching it happen. This song has a very powerful message, and really can be aimed at any president/ prime minister

How do you feel when you see all that is happening in our country that is not the presidents number one priority. Asking how can he look in the mirror and be proud of how he is running the country when people are starving to death, have no homes, the homeless believing that no one cares, that the president isn't trying. How does he sleep knowing that people might not have a chance to say goodbye to someone they love before they die. This song just explains how everything in the world is ignored, but shouldn't be.

This song is a critic, not only to the President of the United States, but a critic to all politicians. Politicians say that they work for the people, but is just a "big circus" and everyone is trying to look like they are working for the people, but they just work for themselves, they don't think on the poor, or the homeless, or how they can damage people lifes , they just set their own goals and to hell with people. Politicians live fancy lives, with peoples money, knowing the needs that are ouside in their own cities,country , nations! we live in a fiction book, politicians are the authors.

The song is about a letter, a letter telling the president George W Bush to wake up to him self and reconsider what he is doing. The song is also asking him a few simple questions about what he is going to do.The one part "what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she is gay and what kind of father would take his own daughters rights away". This is a very powerful part of the song because its not just talking about some random girl its talking about his own daughter.

I agree with all of this I'm glad P!nk was able to point this out as not many singers would have done

This song was written against Mr Bush, and shows how little care he gave to people who were starving and while he was living the rich life and ignoring them. It was created in 2006 and is loved by many people who agree with Pinks protest song.

The song is about how so little the president did at the time.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
