Hey everybody I'm a talking to you
I ain't telling you jealous
It's just the natural truth
Oh oh oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Thinking about me and you and what on earth are we gonna do?

My money's gone, the fun is gone
The way things look I can't be here long
Oh oh oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Thinking about me and you and what on earth are we gonna do?

Taking all my money to pay the tax
I'm telling you people the natural facts
I'm telling you people, in my belief
I am headed straight on relief
Oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Thinking about me and you and what on earth are we gonna do?

I ain't got a dime, ain't got a cent
Ain't got no money to pay my rent
She wants some clothes, she wants some shoes
I'm telling you people I don't know what to do
Oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Talking about me and you and what on earth are we gonna do?

Taking all my money to pay the tax
I'm telling you people the natural facts
I'm telling you people, in my belief
I am headed straight on relief
Oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Thinking about me and you and what on earth are we gonna do?

Oh I got the Eisenhower Blues
Talking about me and you and what the hell are we gonna do?
