Kids for President in 2016!
Adults, we've had it up to here with your complete incompetency.
Kids for President in 2016.

You may be bigger than we, but less time here makes us more free
To reinvent the world how we all want it to be.

We have yet to see what kids can really be.
Society keeps y’all oppressed, unmotivated, unfree.
But we (you) could be the needed energy.

We’re (you’re) good at living life with wow, better at being in the now.
Yes, kids could be the energy we all need.

We’d start by feeding hungry kids, and buying books instead of weapons.
And we’d make schools effective tools for loving who you are inside you.

Children will be seen and heard and listened to, nothing less!
'Childish' and 'immature' will connote greatness, fearlessness.
Your repressed inner-child will come back to life, thanking us.

They’d replace arrogance and greed, with curiosity.
We’ll take seriously hilarity and creativity.

That we’ve been here less time than you means less past to work through.
Harmful norms are less entrenched in us than in you.
We don’t have xenophobia or false dogmas to undo.

And being less set in your ways makes you more able to change,
And change is what we all agree the world needs.

Yes, change is what we all agree the world needs.

You may be bigger than we, but we are endless possibility
To reinvent the world how we all want it to be.

Kids for President in 2016!
Kids for President in 2016!
We’d make it okay to cry. We’d make adults play more outside.
Kids for President in 2016!
