Dear Mr President lyrics Pink

Lyrics

"Let's pretend we're just two people and

You're not better than me" - This refers to president George W. Bush at the time and Pink wanted him to look at the world as a normal person, not the president, realize all the problems in the world.


"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?" - This refers to Bush during his presidency, because he had very little empathy for less fortunate lower and middle class and citizens.


"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?" - Brush had very strong religious beliefs so he didn't appreciate equal rights for homosexuals.

About Pink

Pink was born on September 8, 1979. Her original name was Alecia Beth Moore. Pink grew up in Doylestown, where she attended Kutz Elementary School, Lenape Middle School, and Central Bucks High School West. Her father played guitar and sang songs, thus inspiring Pink from an early age to be a pop star. She was also a gymnast for eight years; she stated in an interview that her first dream was to be an Olympic gymnast. She began performing in Philadelphia clubs when she was about 14. She adopted her stagename, "Pink", around this time. She had had that nickname for quite some time by that point, and initially it had been "a mean thing". At 16, Pink and two other teenage girls, Stephanie Galligan[ and Chrissy Conway, formed the R&B group Choice. A copy of their first song, "Key to My Heart", was sent to LaFace Records in Atlanta, Georgia, where L.A. Reid overheard it and arranged for the group to fly there so he could see them perform. After that, he signed them to a record deal.

Main Issues

The main issues in this song was that President Bush wasn't doing a good job during his presidency. The song specifically talks about the No Child Left Behind Act. disapproval of homosexual rights, and lack of help towards poor and middle class citizens. This particular song was written in 2006.

Our Opinion

We agree with the song because sometime when people like the president get that kind of power they forget about other things in society.

The Impact

Many people agreed with Pink and her song and felt the same feelings she did. Many people on shows and news papers talked about the song, which promoted it more but didn't lead to big protest or anything. It just made people give another look at the president. Other people though didn't like the song and greatly criticized the song and Pink herself. The little criticism though had little to know effect on the song and it's message.
