Down And Out In Paradise - John Mellencamp
    Dear Mr. President

    I live in the suburbs
    It's a long way from Washington , D.C.
    Had me a job
    Workin' for wages
    Till the company moved out
    And they forgot about me
    Can't draw unemployment
    For some unknown reason
    My kids are hungry
    I've got four mouths to feed
    I go out every day looking for suitable employment
    Do you think there's something you could do for me
    Cause I'm

    Down and out here in paradise
    Down and out and I'm on my knees
    I'm down and out here in paradise
    Looks like the milk and honey
    Done run out on me

    Dear Mr. President
    I used to be a dancer
    Got a little bit too old
    So I became a secretary
    Married a man
    In Las Vegas, Nevada
    And ten years later
    He ran out on the kids and me
    Some said I was pretty
    But those days are over
    Now I've no place to live
    And I'm out on the streets
    Oh, Mr. President
    Can I tell you a secret
    I never ever thought that this could happen to me
    Cause I'm

    Dear Mr. President
    I'm just a young kid
    I'm in the fourth grade
    At Riley Elementary
    My mom and dad's been actin' funny
    I'm not sure what
    If it's got something to do with me
    My daddy's always drunk
    My mom's a babysitter
    And I don't like the Russians
    Cause I hear they hate me
    Dear Mr. President
    Can I ask you one question
    When the bombs fall down
    Will they hurt everyone in my family
    Yeah, yeah
