Please Don't Lyrics
[Vocal by Santigold]

The world-is full-of in-tolerance
Greed-injustice-and dominance
A woman-a woman knows-knows relationships
And that's why-why I make-make my little trips

So if-there's a problem
It's really better this way
I don't need-the president
I'll get my little bag and say:

Please don't!-don't let them look down on us
Please don't!-like they used to do to me-

Nixon-Castro-Zhou Enlai
Qaddafi-is easy-and I'll tell you why
A woman knows-just how to do-only rub his leg
He understood-my point of view-so I don't have to beg

So if-there's a problem
It's really better this way
I don't need-the president
I'll get my little bag and say:

Please don't!-don't let them look down on us
Please don't!-like they used to do to me-

Ronald Reagan-Mao Zedong-they're all the same
Kissinger-Anwar Sadat-let me explain
Talk a bit-a little dance-champagne on ice
An hour or two-relationship-we're friends for life!

Please don't!-don't let them look down on us
Please don't!-like they used to do to me-
