If I Was President

If I Was President – Wyclef Jean

E —- G —- Am —- C x 2
Election time is comin
E —- G —- Am —- C x 2

[Chorus]
EIf I was Gpresident,
I’d get Amelected on CFriday, Eassassinated on GSaturday,
Amburied on CSunday.
EIf I was Gpresident…
AmIf I was Cpresident

EAn old Gman told me, instead Am of spending C billions on the war,
we E can use some G of that Ammoney, Cin the ghetto.
I Eknow Gsome so poor, Amwhen it rains Cthat’s when they shower,
EscreamingG “FIGHT THE POWER”.
That’s Amwhen the Cvulture devoured.

EIf I was Gpresident…
AmIf I was Cpresident

EBut the radio Gwon’t play this.
TheyAm call this Crebel music.
EHow can Gyou refAmuse itC, children of Moses?

[Chorus]

EIf I was Gpresident…
AmIf I was Cpresident

ETell the children Gthe truth, the truth!
AmChristopher ColuCmbus didn’t discover America.
EmTell them Gthe truth, the truth YEAH!
AmTell them aCbout Marcus Garvey.
ETell the children Gthe truth YEAH! the truth!
AmTell them aCbout Martin Luther King.
ETell them Gthe truth,
GThe Truth.
AmTell them aCbout JFK

[Chorus]
