(There's George) Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and then
(James) Madison, James Monroe and John Adams once again.
(Andrew) Jackson, Mart van Buren and then Old Tippecanoe,
William Henry Harr'son and his Veep John Tyler too.

James K. Polk who was the Speaker of the House,
(Zach) Taylor, Millard Fillmore, then came Franklin Pierce,
(James Bu)chanan, who was single, Abe Lincoln who got shot,
(Andrew) Johnson was impeached, Ulysses Grant was barely not.

(Hayes, then) Garfield, Chester Arthur, Grover Cleveland, who then thinly
(Lost to) Harrison, came back for four more years, until McKinley,
(Teddy) Roosevelt, Taft, Wilson, Warren Harding unassuming,
(Calvin) Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, FDR and Harry Truman.

Eisenhower then Kennedy, whose clan began to shrink,
Johnson, Nixon, Ford, whose wife began to drink,
(Jimmy) Carter Nobel Laureate, Ron Reagan starred in drama,
(Bush the) Elder, then Bill Clinton, Bush the Younger and Obama.
