or
Wyclef Jean

[Verse 1]
Dear Mr. President with all due respect
I wish we can have a conversation
I?ll take a trip done to the residents
We can talk about the state of the nation
Mr. President
I will ask you about the war
Really and truly what is it for?
IDEN mix soldier form dyeing for stuff above us all
Is it all about oil at end of the day?
Is the pledge of allegiance is something say?
I hope not I love The USA
In spite of all drama we have today
Mr. President are you aware
Our Flesh and blood is dying over there
When the coffins come back
Do you care?
When only the poor kids die
Is it fair?
[Chorus] [Wyclef Jean]
If I can talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If talk something intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it?s Time time time
To speak my mind mind mind
[Verse 2][LL Cool J]
Don't get me wrong
I respect the flag
But it hurts to see a kid in a body bag
He fought for his country with all he had
Now we have a family without a dad
Lil mama crying and the kids are scared
9/11 why we were unprepared
Mr. President,
Are you aware unless you're rich, you have poor health care
It makes you scream and want to pull out your hair
Discharged from the hospital soon as you get there.
Mr. President Truth or dare
Terrorist is hiding do you know where
Illegal immigrants is everywhere
Isn?t really fought they want to come here
I respect you pleased be clear
Talk with me
Show people you care
[Chorus][Wyclef Jean]
If I can talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If talk something intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it?s Time time time
To speak my mind mind mind
[Bridge][Wyclef Jean]
What I?m to do
I can wait here with you
Tell me something that make sense
You sent off for war
Pleased be honesty what it?s for
Doesn?t matter is life or death
Yeah
[Verse 3][LL Cool J]
I?m not republican or democratic
I?m independent I want the facts
When are the soldiers come back?
Are we prepared for a terrorist attack?
Late at night I watch CNN
It so bad I?m stop leaving
Middle East hates us
What?s the reason?
Mr. President
My heart is bleeding
I tuck my kids end every evening
Try to teach them keep believe
Hoping my government want deceive them
Tell?em Set some goals you can achieve them
Mr. President
I have to know if die for you
What will have to show?
How really truly how our country grow
Waiting for your answer Let me know
[Chorus][Wyclef Jean]
If I can talk to the President
Would he pay attention really listen?
If talk something intelligent
Would he be willing to change his position?
Now it?s Time time time
To speak my mind mind mind

Now it?s Time time time
To speak my mind mind mind (repeat)
