George Washington is called the "Father of the Nation"
John Adams passed treachery legislation
The famous Thomas Jefferson bought Louisiana
Under James Madison, War of 1812 began-a
And the Monroe Doctrine was by James Monroe
John Quincy Adams built canals that flow
Know that Andrew Jackson led the common man's cause
Martin van Buren shunned war at all cost
Lost William Harrison, he died in bed
So then John Tyler filled in instead

Presidents, Presidents Whom have we picked to be Presidents, Presidents? Let's See... Throughout America's history, who's made into the Presidency?

James Polk was an underdog, first "Dark Horse"
Zachary Taylor elected 'cause he fought in wars
California admitted by Millard Fillmore
Franklin Pierce on a law book, his oath he swore
Moreover, James Buchanan saw the states seceding
Abraham Lincoln brought slaves to freedom
Believe Andrew Johnson bought Alaskan land
Ulysses Grant granted votes to every last good man
Disbanded post-war Reconstruction, Rutherford Hayes
James Garfield assassinated after ninety days

Grover Cleveland vetoed more bills than most
Benjamin Harrison narrowly won his votes
Throw a toast to Grover, he gained victory again
William McKinley killed by a gunman
One friend of the environment was Teddy Roosevelt
William Taft, income tax, what he most developed
Hoped to build a League of Nations, that was Woodrow Wilson
Warren Harding had a cabinet that scandal spilled from

Calvin Coolidge wiped away the nation's debt
But then came depression much to Herbert Hoover's fret
Yet, Franklin D. Roosevelt—new jobs he created
Harry Truman's usage of the bomb was much debated
An interstate highway system made by Dwight Eisenhower
John Kennedy defied Soviet missile power
For our Civil rights Act, we can thank Lyndon Johnson
Richard Nixon resigned due to Watergate involvement
Onto Gerald Ford, the appointee to replace him
Jimmy Carter pardoned those accused of draft evasion

Presidents, Presidents Whom have we picked to be Presidents, Presidents? Let's See... Throughout America's history, who's made into the Presidency?

When Ronald Reagan spoke, he restored the nation's pride
George H. Bush, in the Gulf War he thrived
To the sky, under Bill Clinton, surged the economy
George W. Bush formed homeland security
You see, Barack Obama wants change to come along
But maybe one day, it'll be your name in the song
