​On To Victory, Mr. Roosevelt

This song is by Loudon Wainwright III and appears on the album 10 Songs For The New Depression (2010).

All hail to Mr. Roosevelt you're the hero of the hour
We sent you on to Washington bestowed on you full power
This country is a vast domain it's the finest spot on earth
We've worked and struggled fought and won every conflict since our birth

On to victory Mr. Roosevelt you'll need one mighty strong
And now that you're our president we know it won't be long
Till folks are happy once again singin' this glad song
Mr. Roosevelt we're back of you 120 million strong

So cut expense tear down the fence between supply demand
Put folks to work don't let them shirk let farmers keep their land
They don't need cash to cut a dash there's faith in those we trust
So when they say that they will pay they will not go and bust

On to victory Mr. Roosevelt we'll need one mighty strong
And now that you're our president we know it won't be long
Till folks are happy once again singin' this glad song
Mr. Roosevelt we're back of you 120 million strong

So onward noble president we pledge our faith in you
'Cause when we see your smiling face we never can be blue
So smile and pray work hard each day and soon things will be bright
The sun will shine we'll all feel fine everything will turn out right

On to victory Mr. Roosevelt we'll need one mighty strong
And now that you're our president we know it won't be long
Till folks are happy once again singin' this glad song
Mr. Roosevelt we're back of you 120 million strong

Let's look into the future now many years from today
There'll be another president to help us find our way
A younger man with darker skin will then be called upon
And history will repeat itself and folks will sing this song

On to victory Mr. Obama we'll need one mighty strong
And now that you're our president we know it won't be long
Till folks are happy once again singin' this glad song
Mr. Obama we're back of you 300 million strong
