She Could Be Queen (Draft 1)

She Could Be Queen (Draft 1)

They’ve made me President of a small island
a dot in the Pacific Ocean, almost a rock

but we rock and roll, and I hoped
for the blue calm and the love rock

but she came to me and said,
“Mr. President I have worries. ”

So I took her into the Palace
and I loved her like a daughter

and she was so safe with me that
she has grown proud and magnificent
and unlike me she is not arrogant at all
and I like that so much, and

if she could be Queen I think
everyone would love her like I do.
