The Presidents

One of the best songs by JoCo:

Washington came first and he was perfect
John Adams kept us out of war with France
Jefferson made the Louisana Purchase
In 1812 James Madison kicked the British in the pants

James Monroe told Europe they could [suck it]
John Quincy Adams looked just like his dad
Andrew Jackson got rid of all the Indians
Van Buren served one term but he wasn't bad

William Henry Harrison died early
John Tyler annexed Texas from Mexico
James K. Polk fought Mexico to keep it
Taylor was a Mexican war hero

Philmore gave a boat to Commodore Perry
Pierce repealed the Missouri Compromise
Buchanan saw the Civil War beginning
Lincoln saved the Union and then he died

Andrew Johnson just survived impeachment
General Grant enjoyed a drink or two
Rutherford B. Hayes ended reconstruction
Garfield was assassinated in 1882

Arthur suspended Chinese immigration
Cleveland made the railroad people squirm
Harrison signed the Sherman Anti-Trust Act
Grover Cleveland served another term

McKinley kicked the Spanish out of Cuba
Roosevelt was real handy with a gun
Taft was big and fat and had a moustache
Wilson kicked some ass in World War I

Harding said, 'Let's laissez-faire with business
Coolidge made the roaring twenties roar!
Hoover screwed the pooch in the great deression
Roosevelt beat the Nazis in the war

Truman dropped the bomb on Hiroshima
Eisenhower kept the Commies well in hand
Kennedy was killed by a magik bullet
Johnson murdered kids in Vietnem

Nixon was a sweaty, filthy liar
Ford gave Nixon pardon for his crimes
Gerald lusted in his heart for peanuts
Reagan won the cold war but lost his mind

Gerge Bush Sr poked at Saddam Hussein
Clinton gave an intern a cigar
Ws legacy is a work in progress
That is all the presidents so far

Year 2005 we're out of money
Somewhere, surely freedom's on the march
I don't like to make political statements..
