Mitch Miller – The President On The Dollar lyrics

A boy chopped down a cherry tree
Many years gone by
He bravely said, I did it sir,
I cannot tell a lie
His father knew right there and then
He'd be a man of fame
The president on the dollar
George Washington's his name

[Chorus:]
The president on the dollar
The yankee doodle dollar
The president on the dollar
George Washington's his name

The Revolutionary War
Was won by General George
And his starving band of ragged men
Who fought at Valley Forge

The father of the usa
Is what he soon became
The president on the dollar
George Washington's his name

[Repeat chorus]

One day he said to Betsy Ross
A flag is what we need
A symbol of our freedom
For everyone to read

With stars and stripes and liberty
He set the world aflame
The president on the dollar
George Washington's his name

[Repeat chorus]

The Continental Congress said
Now wouldn't it be grand
To have him be the President
The first one in the land

The voting was unanimous
And that's how he became
The president on the dollar
George Washington's his name

[Repeat chorus]
