I AM the President of Pop (And you're not!)

lyrics

I got the music inside me
cuz I got the music inside me
cuz I got the music inside me
I am the President of Pop

Yeah music used to be a thing
That always came from the heart
But now nobody thinks about music
Being anything like art
Art?

But look, over there -
Is it autotune? - is it a manufactured pop idol?
No! It’s the President of Pop! (and you’re not)

I am the President of Pop
I am the President of Pop
I am the President of Pop
So it would not be a sin
If you let me in

I’m here to knock down castle walls
Not just make tiny dents
I’m here to make a hundred million dollars
Not just a couple of cents
I’m here to start a revolution in music that’s supersized
I’m here to bring some swing back to music that’s overly quantized


So if you want join my revolution
Just sing and dance and vote
Or if you’re the more religious type
Elect me music’s Pope

Bless you my child!


I am the President of Pop
(And you’re not)
I am the President of Pop
(And you’re not)
So it would not be a sin
If you open up and let me in

Some people just look at music clips
Or it’s in the background and they don’t listen
Which is kind of like having a girl that you like
That you’d rather text than be kissing
Which is kind of like having a sport that you play
Using your computer
It’s kind of like sticking with your old girlfriend
When you find a girl that’s ten times cuter

Cuz I got the music inside me
Cuz I got the music inside me
Cuz I got the music inside me
Some people are weak?
Well hell, let ‘em ride me
Cuz I got the music inside me
Cuz I got the music inside me
I am the President of Pop
Cuz I got the music inside me
I am the President of Pop

So if you want join my revolution
Just sing and dance and vote
(Vote!)
If you want join my revolution
Just sing and dance and vote
(Vote!)
If you want to join my revolution
Just sing and dance and vote
Or if you’re the more religious type
Elect me Music’s Pope!

I am the President of Pop
(And you’re not)
I am the President of Pop
(And you’re not)
I am the President of Pop
(And you’re not)
So it would not be a sin
If you let me in

I am the President of Pop!
(And you’re not)
I am the President of Pop!
(And you’re not)
I am the President of Pop!
(And you’re not)
So it would not be a sin
If you open up and let me in

The President of Pop

The President of Pop
Came to Earth
On a dove-fueled blue balloon.

From the moment he landed
He told himself,
"Not a mere millisecond too soon!

"In fact, a bit late,
But here I am
To fix a few things that are wrong.

"But I won't use my army
Nor my missiles or guns–
Just a deliriously weird new song."


First he wandered and wondered,
then he pondered, then he thundered:
