The Presidents Rap

Written by: Ron Clark, DeMario Calloway
Now let’s get down to some presidential learning

We’ll start with George Washington straight from Mount Vernon

The first President and Commander in Chief

Fought the Revolutionary War so we could be free


John Adams was second, Thomas Jefferson third

When we fought for independence, their voices were heard (Saying)

When in the course of human events (Okay)

We took a stand and we’ve been doing it since (Okay)

Pledge our lives and our fortunes and all

Defended our sacred honor for a better tomorrow


During the War of 1812 James Madison led

Again against the British and defeated the red

Next came Monroe and then John Adams’s son

Followed by Old Hickory, Andrew Jackson

Martin Van Buren was President eight

William Harrison was ninth; he only served thirty days!


Number ten came Tyler, eleven was Polk

Then Zachary Taylor, Old Rough and Ready to Go

After Fillmore, Pierce and Buchanan were gone

Abraham Lincoln said that slavery’s wrong

And all through the Civil War he united the nation

And signed the Emancipation Proclamation

All through the Civil War he united the nation

And signed the Emancipation Proclamation

It’s a tribute to the leaders of the USA

It’s the Presidents Rap

Alright, Alright, Okay, Okay

He’s the Commander in Chief

It’s a tribute to the leaders of the USA

It’s the Presidents Rap

Alright, Alright, Okay, Okay

Andrew Johnson bought Alaska from Russia officially

And General Grant led the North to victory

Rutherford B. Hayes was number nineteen

The first President to get a telephone ring

Garfield was number twenty, Chester Arthur twenty-one

Followed by Grover Cleveland and Benjamin Harrison

But Cleveland wasn’t done, his aggression was firm

Re-elected and served two nonconsecutive terms

Twenty-five was McKinley, Roosevelt twenty-six –

The youngest President ever! And then it switched

To William Howard Taft, then Woodrow Wilson

The leader of our nation during World War I

After him Warren Harding then Calvin Coolidge

The stock market crashed during Herbert Hoover

‘Til Franklin D. Roosevelt came and gave some hope and help

A New Deal was born, and all around relief was felt

He stopped the Great Depression and served for four terms

Through World War II, then it became Truman’s turn

To finish off the fight for our rise to power

And pave the way for Mr. Eisenhower


President thirty-five, the Great JFK

Had a vision for moon walking until they took him away

We miss the king of Camelot and we cherish the memory

There will never be another John F. Kennedy

Thirty-six was Lyndon B., thirty-seven Nixon

Scandals and contradictions, disgracing tradition,

Screaming, “I am not a crook!”

Resigned before impeachment, that got him off the hook

After the crimes of Watergate, Gerald Ford was thirty-eight

Followed by Jimmy Carter who was from the Peach State

Ronald Reagan was the fortieth

Who was an actor first, and then the world became his audience

Now check it out—then his VP George Bush became the man

During Desert Storm to stop Saddam was the plan

Clinton was forty-second, the economy was great

This country had the lowest unemployment rate

When Bush, Jr. came in office, he dealt with the attacks

Of 9-11 and the War with Iraq

Now after hearing this, isn’t it evident that

Every one of these men deserves a Presidents Rap!


It’s a tribute to the leaders of the USA

It’s the Presidents Rap

Alright, Alright, Okay, Okay

He’s the Commander in Chief

It’s a tribute to the leaders of the USA

It’s the Presidents Rap

Alright, Alright, Okay, Okay

He’s the Commander in Chief!
