We'd Like to Thank You

 

We'd Like to Thank You Song Lyrics


[ALL]
Today we're living in a shanty
Today we're scrounging for a meal
[SOPHIE]
Today I'm stealing coal for fires
Who knew i could steal?
[MEN]
I used to winter in the tropics
[WOMEN]
I spent my summers at the shore
[FRED]
I used to throw away the paper
[ALL]
We don't anymore!
We'd like to thank you: Herbert 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
The cozy cottage built for two
In this blue heaven
That you
Gave us
Yes!
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,
[WOMEN]
You left behind a grateful nation
[ALL]
So, Herb, our hats are off to you
We're up to here with admiration
[SOPHIE]
Come down and have a little stew
[ALL]
Come down and share some Christmas dinner
Be sure to bring the missus too
We got no turkey for our stuffing
Why don't we stuff you?!
We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover (Thank you Herbie)
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today
Come and get it, Herb!
