President's Day

A Song Thingie For President's Day!

+++

there is a legend
there is a tale
of the dead presidents
that will surely turn you pale

one day a year
their spirits blue
they arise and then they
come 'a gunning after you

turn the deadbolt
hide the kids
all the dead presidents
have flipped their deadly lids

(chorus)
presidents day
ooh la la
a day when we all dance and sing
dance and sing and form a ring
presidents day
ooh la la
just the thing to make us see
when you vote for your king
all the magic it will bring
they all rise from the beyond
for one special day
ooh ooh
presidents day

i heard a clawing
at the front door
some man was mumbling
about needing me for war

then at the window
a crazy grin
i think it was the wooden teeth
of mr. washington

i ran to the backyard
but it was too late
Coolidge and Hoover
had opened up the gate

(chorus)
presidents day
ooh la la
a day when we all dance and sing
dance and sing and form a ring
presidents day
ooh la la
just the thing to make us see
when you vote for your king
all the magic it will bring
they all rise from the beyond
for one special day
ooh ooh
presidents day

resistance was hopeless
so i let them in
so many dead presidents
i managed a frozen grin

what do you want here?
what do you seek?
is your special day a joy
or a curse you must repeat?

solemn are the ways
of the shadows of men
no more blood left in their hearts
but they can smell it on the wind

(chorus)
presidents day
ooh la la
a day when we all dance and sing
dance and sing and form a ring
presidents day
ooh la la
just the thing to make us see
when you vote for your king
all the magic it will bring
they all rise from the beyond
for one special day
ooh ooh
presidents day

"the dead commend thee
and counsel fate
we cannot steer the ship
we can no longer take that bait

please release us
from this curse
the promise of america
has gone from bad to worse"

they dissipated
in air both thin and stark
awaiting more members
who will vanish in the dark

(chorus)
presidents day
ooh la la
a day when we all dance and sing
dance and sing and form a ring
presidents day
ooh la la
just the thing to make us see
when you vote for your king
all the magic it will bring
they all rise from the beyond
for one special day
ooh ooh
presidents day

there is a legend
there is a tale
of the dead presidents
that will turn you pale

one day a year
their spirits blue
they arise and then they
come 'a gunning after you

lock your doors
hide the kids
the dead presidents
have flipped their deadly lids

(chorus)
presidents day
ooh la la
a day when we all dance and sing
dance and sing and form a ring
presidents day
ooh la la
just the thing to make us see
when you vote for your king
all the magic it will bring
they all rise from the beyond
for one special day
ooh ooh
presidents day
