IF JESUS WAS PRESIDENT President Jesus
If Jesus was President 
And Gandhi was the Secretary of Defense 
They'd teach us non-violence
And decorate our borders with a picket fence 

If Jesus came on TV 
He'd talk about religions and hypocrisy 
He wouldn't even hurt a flea 
He'd trade away our weapons for a bag of tea 

If Jesus was the President 
He'd wear a hat and glasses kinda like Clark Kent 
He wouldn't even spend a cent 
On bombing other countries, we'd just pay their rent 

If Jesus came back again
With Moses and Muhammad as the Super Friends 
They'd show us Amen to Zen 
There'd be no separation between us and them 

     He'd strike a mellow tone
     What's the harm there?
     He'd offer up his throne
     From his armchair

If Jesus was American 
He'd turn the other cheek and take it on the chin 
He wouldn't even try to win 
By killing other people, isn't that a sin? 

If Jesus was President 
And Buddha was Philosopher-in-Residence 
Then love would be the main event 
We'd put away the pistols and the punishment 
And dance around in circles to our heart's content
