Heigh ho! 
Do you know, 
The names of the U.S. residents 
Who then became the Presidents 
And got a view from the White House loo 
Of Pennsylvania Avenue 

George Washington was the first, you see 
He once chopped down a cherry tree 

D:President number two would be 
John Adams and then number three 

Y:Tom Jefferson stayed up to write 
The Declaration late at night 
So he and his wife had a great big fight 
And she made him sleep on the couch all night 

W:James Madison never had a son 
then he fought the War of 1812 

D:James Monroe's colossal nose 
Was bigger than Pinnochio's 

Y:John Quincy Adams was number six 
And it's Andrew Jackson's butt he kicked 
So Jackson learns to play politics 
Next time he's the one that the country picks 

D:Martin Van Buren number eight 
For a one-term shot as chief of state 

Y:William Harrisson, how do you praise 
That guy was dead in thirty days! 

W:John Tyler he liked country folk 
D:And after him came President Polk 
Y:Zachary Taylor liked to smoke 
His breath killed friends whenever he spoke 

W:1850, really nifty 
Millard Fillmore's in 
Y:Young and fierce was Franklin Pierce 
The man without a chin 

D: Follows next a period spannin' 
Four long years with James Buchanan 
Then the South start shootin' cannon 
And we've got a civil war 

YW&D:A war! 
A war down south in Dixie! 

Y:Up to bat comes old Abe Lincoln 
D:There's a guy who's really thinkin' 
W:Kept the United States from shrinking 
Saved the ship of state from sinking 

D:Andrew Johnson's next 
He had some slight defects 
W: Congress each 
Would impeach 
D:And so the country now elects 

Y: Ulysses Simpson Grant 
Who would scream and rave and rant 
W: While drinking whiskey 
Although risky 
Cause he'd spill it on his pants 

Y: It's 1877 and the democrats would gloat 
But they're all amazed when Rutherford Hayes 
Wins by just one vote 

D:James Garfield, someone really hated 
Cause he was assasinated 
W:Chester Arthur gets instated 
Four years later he was traded 

D:For Grover Cleveland, really fat 
Elected twice as a democrat 
Then Benjamin Harrison after that 
It's William McKinley up to bat 

Y:Teddy Roosevelt charged up San Juan Hill 
W:And President Taft he got the bill 
Y:In 1913 Woodrow 
YW&D: Wiiilllllllson 
Takes us into World War One 

Y:Warren Harding next in line
D:It's Calvin Coolidge he does fine
W: And then in 1929 
The market crashes and we find 

Y:It's Herbert Hoover's big debut 
He gets the blame and loses to 
D:Franklin Roosevelt, President who 
Helped us win in World War Two 

W:Harry Truman, weird little human 
Serves two terms and when he's done 
Y:It's Eisenhower who's got the power 
From '53 to '61 

D:John Kennedy had Camelot
Then Lyndon Johnson took his spot 
Y:Richard Nixon he gets caught 
And Gerald Ford fell down a lot 

W:Jimmy Carter liked campaign trips 
Y:And Ronald Regan's speeches scripts 
All came from famous movie clips 
And President Bush said "read my lips" 

D:Now in Washington D.C. 
W:It's democrats and the G.O.P. 
Y:But the ones in charge are plain to see 
D:The Clintons Bill and Hillary 

Y: The next President to lead the way 
Well, it just might be yourself one day 
Then the press'll distort everything you say 
YW&D:So jump in your plane and fly away
