The Lyrics

Being the US president must be the most ungrateful task in the world. No matter what you do, it's always wrong - either it is ethically wrong, or if not, produces disastrous results
Don't wanna be the American president
don't wanna be the White House resident
It is task by no means heaven's sent -
Being one leaves the whole world discontent

Welcome to International tensions.
all across the United Nations.
Arabs on the throats of Israel,
rogue states, like Iran, North Korea
terrorists rampant on the media
All problems imagined and real.

It must be the task world's most ungrateful
just what you do, it is always so hateful
whether glass is half empty or half full -
for most people you always appear a fool

Welcome to all kinds of problems
bank crisis, economical nonsense
all across the American nation.
Dollar rate fail expectation
peril of rampant inflation
Okay, if that's enough to state on.

Don't wanna be the American president
Doesn't matter if you are donkey or elephant
You can't make your nation content
It is a task next to a torment

Welcome to all kinds of troubles
Stock crash, burst loan bubbles
All things seem not to be okay.
Death pe-nalty and abortion -.
Left, right, and all that distortion
For that's enough so to say.

I think the new one is gonna go beyond left and right, for one he's gonna throw the most expensive house warming party in White House history, so already there he's taking a new angle on party politics...

Inflation doesn't seem to be a problem (yet), but a very good job of putting a light-hearted, but accurate perspective on the job.
