hear tell there's a stanger in the Jones household CHORUS

done time, to have some fun CHORUS
siree yes, siree MR
*TAMBO. Yes*
siree CHORUS
siree yes, siree MR
*TAMBO. It's*
a big holiday everywhere For
the Jones family has a brand new heir He's
a joy heaven-sent, And
we proudly present Mr Franklin. D Roosevelt. Jones When
he grows up he never will stray With
a name like the one that he's got today When
he walks down the street Folks
will say "Pleased to meet" "Mr
Franklin. D Roosevlet. Jones" What
a smile and, how he show it He'll
be happy all, day long What
a name I'll, bet he knows it With
that handle how, can he go wrong And
the folks in the town all agree He'll
be famous and famous as he can be How
can he be a dud or, a stick in the mud When
he's Franklin D Roosevelt. Jones Go
to sleep my baby and, maybe you'll, balance the budget by and by You're
a lucky baby with Franklin D for. your name Mrs
Jones'. baby boy is a welcome resident Give
him a fishing rod for a toy he's, the future president When
this rascal goes to school ABC's won't matter Teach
him plain old 'rithmatic and of course the Fireside Chatter My
friends my, friends let's, all shout Hooray CHORUS!
a big holiday everywhere For
the Jones family has a brand new heir MR
*TAMBO. We'll*
be proud to affirm when he serves his fourth term Just
you wait and see CHORUS
*TAMBO. He'll*
make history CHORUS!
he's Franklin D Roosevelt. Jones
