We'd Like To Thank You Herbert Hoover

This song is by Charles Strouse and appears on the album Annie (1977).


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


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


I used to winter in the tropics


I spent my summers at the shore


I used to throw away the paper--

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

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


You left behind a greatful nation


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


Come down and have a little stew


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
