Discuss: Dina Garipova’s “What If” Is Seriously Lame

If you’re lactose intolerant, then don’t read the lyrics to Dina Garipova’s “What If”. It’s pure cheese. The Russian starlet debuted her Eurovision entry earlier this evening, and Wiwi is so underwhelmed he might pass out.

The song is a ballad to peace. Dina asks us lots of silly questions—”What if we could open up the doors?”, “What if we could help each other more?”—that would make Red Cross workers roll their eyes. I’d love her to answer, “What would happen if we came together as one?” That’s just nasty.

Anyway, you can listen to the song and read the lyrics below. And if you want to hear Dina singing live, then click here.

“What If” Lyrics

What if I could change the path of time
What if I had the power to decide
What if I could make us unify

If I
If I

What if we would open up the doors
What if we could help each other more
What if i could make you all believe

If we
If we

What if we all
Opened our arms

What if we
Came together as one
What if we aimed
To stop the alarms

What if we chose to
Bury our guns

Why don’t we always
Reach out to those
Who need us the most

Together we can change the path of time
Together we have power to decide
The answer lies within our hearts and minds

Together
Together

Together we can make a better place
On this little island out in space
Together we can change the world forever

What if we all
Opened our arms
What if we
Came together as one
What if we aimed
To stop the alarms

What if we chose to
Bury our guns

Let’s unite and make a change
Let’s unite and write a new page
Come on sinners come on saints

Have faith

Why don’t we always
Reach out to those

What if we all
Opened our arms
What if we
Came together as one
What if we aimed
To stop the alarms

What if we chose to
Bury our guns
Why don’t we always
Reach out to those
Who need us the most
