Traditional

Tell me why you like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
Good God almighty, he's the poor man's friend.

'Cause in the year of nineteen and thirty-two
We had no idea just what we would do
All our finances had flowed away
Till my dad got a job with the WPA.

And that's why I like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Roosevelt (poor man's friend)
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend.

Tell me why you like Lester B (poor man's friend)
Tell me why you like Lester B (poor man's friend)
Tell me why you like Lester B (poor man's friend)
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend.

'Cause in the year of nineteen and sixty-seven
I was a somewhat younger man
The call came to bloody glory came
And I would not raise my hand.

'Cause I'm baptized by water
So I'll pass on the one by fire
If you want to fight
Go on and fight if that be your desire.

That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend.

That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
That's why I like Pierre Trudeau (poor man's friend)
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend
Good God almighty that's the poor man's friend.
