Bands are playing
Let's go swaying
At the President's birthday ball
They'll be welcoming one and all
Happy birthday,
Best-on-Earth day
To the President FDR*
From Americans near and far

Look forward to much happier times
Look forward as we join in the grand march, the March of Dimes**
Check your sorrow till tomorrow
For the heavens will soon be bright
And we're gonna have fun tonight
There'll be rhythm and mirth
At the president's birthday ball!

(*: Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882 - 1945), 32nd US President from 1933 to 1945;
his birthday was on January 30th)
(**:The March of Dimes was started by President Roosevelt.
Roosevelt had polio himself and all of the school children in America were
supposed to bring dimes to school all over the country and the money
collected was to be used to find a cure for polio. This was an annual
occurrence. ----Notes by Andy Davison)
