If I ruled the world?
That’s a bit of a big question
Don’t you think?
If I ruled the world…
I don’t know what I’d do first
There’s so much I’d want to do
Well, then I guess I
Get back to this
Figuring out what to fix first business
I wouldn’t force anyone to believe something
That’s for sure
It would be like a democracy
Except I rule over everything
Okay, maybe not a democracy
I’d be a kind empror
Let’s go with that
But I’d listen to the people
I wouldn’t say “BELIEVE THIS!!!”
Shove it down their throats
I would make laws, though
And they’d have to be abided
I’d rather like to keep free speech
Would outlawing book burning mess with free speech?
Scratch that, too
I’d give a good scolding to anyone who did it, though
And outlawing war
Well, who the hell is going to listen to that anyway?
I’d probably break that law myself
(Hey, no one’s perfect)
Maybe I’d have scientists work extra hard
On making electric cars that look great
And help save our environment
Yeah, I like that
Get all of the scientists together
And combine the treasuries of the world
So I can pay for-
But I’d rather like to set a worldwide law
And I’d like to feed the hungry
And give a home for the homeless
This “what would you do first” business
Is harder than I thought it would be
Why am I even struggling so hard with this?
It’s not like I’m ever going to rule the world
What’s the big deal?
I think I’ll go worry about something else
Like that homework that’s due
Or the fact that I’m slightly hungry
That food thing is the most pressing, actually
I’m going to get something to eat
Maybe I’ll get back to you when
I’ve had a chicken sandwich
I can’t rule the world
If I don’t have something to eat first.
