Well, you know that President Roosevelt, he was always fine
He helped the crippled, boys, and it almost healed him blind
Oh yes, gwonna miss President Roosevelt
Well he's gone, he gone, but his spirit will always, will go on

He travelled out East, he travelled over the West
But after all the preseidents, President Roosevelt was the best
Oh yes, gonna mis President Roosevelt
Well, he gone, he gone, but his spirit will always, will go on

Well, then Roosevelt went to Georgia, boys, and he was ready 'round and 'round
I guess he might have seen that pale horse when he was trailin' down
Oh yes, gonna miss President Roosevelt
Well, he gone, he gone, but his spirit will always, will go on

Well now, he travelled by land, and he travelled by sea
Helped the United State, boys, and also helped Chinese
Oh yes, gonna miss President Roosevelt
Well, he gone, he gone, but his spirit will always, will go on

Well now, the rooster told the hen, "I want you go crow."
Said, "Now President Roosevelt gone, can't live in this shack no more."
Oh, yeah, miss President Roosevelt
Well he gone, he gone, but his w-work will always, will go on
