“If I Were in Charge of the World”

If I were in charge of the world

I’d cancel school every Friday,

Political commercials,

High stakes assessments, and also

Infomercials.

 

If I Were in charge of the world

There’d be no upset parents on my voicemail,

Students under pressure, and

Principals that don’t understand.

 

If I were in charge of the world

You wouldn’t have hate .

You wouldn’t have violence .

You wouldn’t have pain .

Or “Serves you right.”

You wouldn’t even have war.

 

If I were in charge of the world

A smile would greet you every day .

All kids would feel loved .

And a person who sometimes makes mistakes,

And sometimes has a bad day,

Would still be allowed to be

In charge of the world

The End
