The Lyrics

Damn, wish you were our leader by ahahladylady (a lyrical answer to "Damn, wish you were president," a parody by Sophie B. Hawkins of her own song)
Our country swung madly to the right
Took away all that we need
Stuffed liberty into a cage
To satisfy a fearful rage
I had a dream we found a hero

Damn, wish you were our leader
I hope our day for freedom comes
Back to us uncut and untorn
The two last white house terms
We can't afford another
It's all a dreadful frightening shame
Help us Hillary make our country sane
They broke the world we sent our troops inside
Can it be fixed now
Can we still get by?

Cause I once proudly saw red white and blue
We gave good reason for each time we
Wrote anew in the lawbooks
But now are we all crooks
Don't say you'll play
With rights they took away

Damn, wish you were our leader
Not just one more politician
Bought and sold not helping anyone
We want proof of it
Sometimes we think and shudder
Will you still ease our healthcare pain
Much more than Obama or McCain
I thought it was a sniper
No that was just a little girl
Stop your lies and come and save the world
Damn, I wish you were our leader

If you were our girl believe me
We'd come vote for you in droves
You could help our country through stormy weather
Tell us when
When life and liberty are gonna get better

Give us an hour to ask you
Sent to us from heaven sure
How being a woman will make you much better
Say you win
Whatever, whatever, whatever, whatever

I fled the country once since then for peace of mind
I watched the ocean making love to memories of better days
Before this far-right hell was raised
Give me one reason I should vote for you

Damn wish you were our leader
Not just one more politician
Bought and sold not helping anyone
We want proof of it
One woman's not another
Only one that stands for change
Should win against Obama or McCain
Shucks I'd go vote for my mother
If she's a candidate that fits
I don't believe in sexist politics
Damn I wish you were our leader

Maybe they're all right maybe it's your time
But I'm fed up with
Old politicians' lies
You may use these lyrics freely
