Annie – We'D Like To Thank You lyrics

All

Today we're living in ashanti
Today we're scrounging for a meal

Sophie

Today I'm stealing coal for fires
Who knew I could steal?

Men

I used to winter in the tropics

Women

I spent my summers at the shore

Fred

I used to throw away the paper--

All
He don't anymore!
We'd like to thank you: Herber Hoover
For really showing us the way
We'd like to thank you: Herbert Hoover
You made us what we are today

Prosperity was 'round the corner
A cozy cottage built for two
In this blue heaven
That you
Gave us
Yes!

We're turning blue!
They offered us Al Smith and Hoover
We paid attention and we chose
Not only did we pay attention
We paid through the nose.

In ev'ry pot he said "a chicken"
But Herbert Hoover he forgot
Not only don't we have the chicken
We ain't got the pot!
Hey Herbie

Women

You left behind a greatful nation

All

So, Herb, our hats are off to you
We're up to here with admiration

Sophie

Come down and have a little stew

All

Come down and share some Christmas dinner
Be sure to bring the missus too
We got no turkey for our stuffing
So why don't we stuff you
We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today
Come and get it, Herb!
