Randy Newman: “I’m Dreaming Of A White President”

The lyrics, which reference “White Christmas,” include this stanza: “I’m dreaming of a white President/Just like the ones we’ve always had/A real live white man/Who knows the score/How to handle money or start a war/Wouldn’t even have to tell me what we were fighting for/He’d be the right man.”
