This song has a direct message. Pink ask Mr Bush why is more important a barrel than an human life. She ask him about poverty and why a mother can’t say goodbye to a son who has died in an unfair war, how does he sleep persecuting homosexual rights, giving an unworthy base salary, etc.

It’s a beautiful song that make you think in humans, in how importants are the Presidents decisions and why a person like G.Bush arrived to become a president of USA.

“Dear Mr. President”
(feat. Indigo Girls)

Dear Mr. President,
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?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
No child is left behind?
We’re not dumb and we’re not blind.
They’re all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell.

What kind of father would take his own daughter’s rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You’ve come a long way from whiskey and cocaine.

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you ’bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don’t know nothing ’bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You’d never take a walk with me.
Would you?

The lyrics of this song celebrate the political changes in Eastern Europe at that time – such as the Polish Round Table Agreement and fall of the Berlin Wall, the increasing freedom in the communist bloc (which soon led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union), and the clearly imminent end of the Cold War.

The Scorpions were inspired to write the song on a visit to Moscow in 1989.

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future’s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

The wind of change blows straight
Into the face of time
Like a storm wind that will ring
The freedom bell for peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

Sunday bloody sunday is one of U2’s most overtly political songs, its lyrics describe the horror felt by an observer of The Troubles in Northern Ireland, mainly focusing on the Bloody Sunday incident in Derry where British troops shot and killed 14 civil rights marchers.

I can’t believe the news today
Oh, I can’t close my eyes
And make it go away
How long…
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long…
’cause tonight…we can be as one
Tonight…
Broken bottles under children’s feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won’t heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
And the battle’s just begun
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
How long…
How long must we sing this song?
How long? How long…
’cause tonight…we can be as one
Tonight…tonight…
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
And it’s true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won
On…
Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday…

Your pillow wasn’t slept upon

Your closet was empty too

All of your clothes and things were gone

There wasn’t a trace of you

How could you go and leave so completely?

Nothing was left of all the memories that we used to share

Just an empty tube of toothpaste

And a half-filled cup of coffee

Odds and ends of a beautiful love affair

At least, you could have said goodbye

You shouldn’t have run away

Were you afraid that I would cry?

My tears might have made you stay

Where are those dreams that kept us together?

Nothing was left to show that we were once so happy there

Just an empty tube of toothpaste

And a half-filled cup of coffee

Odds and ends of a beautiful love affair

Odds and ends of a beautiful love affair

“Pure And Simple”

You’ve been saying that I’m driving you crazy,
And I haven’t been around for you lately,
but I had a few things on my mind.
When I’m with you I am filled with emotion,
Can’t you see that I’m giving you devotion,
And a lover like this is hard to find.
I know I’ve been walking around in a daze,
Baby, Baby.
You gotta believe me when I say….

Wherever you go,
(I always be there)
Whatever you do,
(I know I’m gunna be there)
It’s pure and simple,
(a-yeah yeah)
I’ll be there for you.
(pure and simple gonna be there)
Whatever it takes ,
(I’ll always be there)
I swear its true,
(you know I’m gunna be there)
It’s pure and simple,
(a-yeah yeah)
I’ll be there for you.
(pure and simple gonna be there)

I’ve been there through the stormiest weather,
Always trying to make things a bit better,
And I know I’ve gotta try and get through to you.

You can love me in a way like no other,
But the situations taking you under,
So you need to tell me now what you wanna do…

I know I’ve been walking around in a daze,
Baby, Baby.
You gotta believe me when I say…

(pure and simple gonna be there) [x 3 (to fade)]

Maybe when you know the song you can sing it karaoke:

Two jumps in a week, I bet you think that’s pretty clever don’t you boy

Flyin’ on your motorcycle, watching all the ground beneath you drop
You’d kill yourself for recognition, kill yourself to never ever stop
You broke another mirror, you’re turning into something you are not

Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry

Drying up in conversation, you will be the one who cannot talk
All your insides fall to pieces, you just sit there wishing you could still make love
They’re the ones who’ll hate you when you think you’ve got the world
all sussed out
They’re the ones who’ll spit at you, you will be the one screaming out

Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry

Oh, it’s the best thing that you’ve ever had
The best thing that you’ve ever, ever had
It’s the best thing that you’ve ever had
The best thing you’ve had has gone away

So don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high, don’t leave me dry
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me high
Don’t leave me dry
