Go West

Go West's, "King of Wishful Thinking"
Better Lyrics:
REPs do not approve, it makes them ill
O's duty to Congress shirking
These "Emergencies" are no excuse
Makes O' the king of overreaching
(King of overreaching)
Down with the king of overreaching
Original Lyrics:
I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
(King of wishful thinking)
I am the king of wishful thinking
