I'm Dreaming {Album Lyrics}


  • I'm Dreaming

    George Washington was a white man
    Adams and Jefferson too
    Abe Lincoln was a white man, probably
    And William McKinley the whitest of them all
    Was shot down by an immigrant in Buffalo
    And a star fell out of heaven

    I’m dreaming of a white President
    Just like the ones we’ve always had
    A real live white man
    Who knows the score
    How to handle money or start a war
    Wouldn’t even have to tell me what we were fighting for
    He’d be the right man
    If he were a

    I’m dreaming of a white President
    Someone whom we can understand
    Someone who knows where we’re coming from
    And that the law of the jungle is not the law of this land
    In deepest darkest Africa nineteen three
    A little boy says, “Daddy, I just discovered relativity.
    A big eclipse is coming
    And I’ll prove it. Wait and see!”

    “You better eclipse yourself outta here, son
    And find yourself a tree
    There’s a lion in the front yard
    And he knows he won’t catch me.”

    How many little Albert Einsteins
    Cut down in their prime?
    How many little Ronald Reagans
    Gobbled up before their time?

    I don’t believe in evolution
    But it does occur to me,
    What if little William Howard Taft had to face a lion
    Or God forbid, climb a tree?
    Where would this country be?

    I’m dreaming of a white President
    Buh buh buh buh
    ‘Cause things have never been this bad
    So he won’t run the hundred in ten seconds flat
    So he won’t have a pretty jump shot
    Or be an Olympic acrobat
    So he won’t know much about global warming
    Is that really where you’re at?
    He won’t be the brightest, perhaps
    But he’ll be the whitest
    And I’ll vote for that

    Whiter than this?
    Whiter than this?
    Whiter than this?
    Whiter than this?
    Oh yeah
