					                                    The Presidents Song by the Animaniacs

Heigh ho! Do you know,                                   Ulysees Simpson Grant
The names of the US residents                            Who would scream and rave and rant
Who then became the Presidents                           While drinking whiskey although risky
And got a view from the White House loo                  Cause he'd spill it on his pants
Of Pennsylvania Avenue.
                                                         It's 1877 and the democrats would gloat
George Washington was the first, you see                 But they're all amazed when Rutherford Hayes
He once chopped down a cherry tree                       Wins by just one vote
President number two would be
John Adams and then Number three                         James Garfield, someone really hated
                                                         Cause he was assasinated
Tom Jefferson stayed up to write                         Chester Arthur gets instated
The Constitution late at night                           Four years later he was traded
So he and his wife had a great big fight
And she made him sleep on the couch all night            For Grover Cleveland, really fat
                                                         Elected twice as a democrat
James Madison never had a son                            Then Benjamin Harrison after that
And he fought the War of 1812                            It's William McKinley up at bat
James Monroe's colossal nose
Was bigger than Pinnochio's                              Teddy Roosevelt charged up San Juan Hill
                                                         And President Taft he got the bill
John Quincy Adams was number six                         In 1913 Woodrow Wilson
And it's Andrew Jackson's butt he kicked                 Takes us into World War One
So Jackson learns to play politics
Next time he's the one that the country picks            Warren Harding, he does fine
                                                         It's Calvin Coolidge next in line
Martin Van Buren number eight                            And then in 1929
For a one term shot as chief of state                    The market crashes and we find
William Harrison, how do you praise
That guy was dead in thirty days!                        It's Herbert Hoover's big debut
                                                         He gets the blame and loses to
John Tyler he liked country folk                         Franklin Roosevelt, President who
And after him came President Polk                        Helped us win in World War Two
Zachary Taylor liked to smoke
His breath killed friends whenever he spoke              Harry Truman, weird little human
                                                         Serves two terms and when he's done
1850, really nifty                                       It's Eisenhower who's got the power
Millard Fillmore's in                                    From '53 to '61
Young and fierce was Franklin Pierce
The man without a chin                                   John F. Kennedy, he gets shot
                                                         So Lyndon Johnson takes his spot
Follows next a period spannin'                           Richard Nixon, he gets caught
Four long years with James Buchanan                      And Gerald Ford fell down a lot
Then the South start shootin' cannon
And we've got a civil war.                               Jimmy Carter liked camping trips
A war! A war down south in Dixie!                        And Ronald Reagan's speeches' scripts
                                                         Came from famous movie clips
Up to bat comes old Abe Lincoln                          And President Bush said "read my lips"
There's a guy who's really thinkin'
Kept the United States from shrinking                    Now in Washington D.C.
Saved the ship of state from sinking                     It's democrats and the G.O.P.
                                                         But the one in charge is plain to see
Andrew Johnson's next                                    It's Clinton, first name Hilary
He had some slight defects
Congress each would impeach                              The next President to lead the way
And so the country now elects                            Well, it just might be yourself one day
                                                         Then the press'll distort everything you say
                                                         So jump in your plane and fly away!
