Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones Song Lyrics

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones MEN: Oh, Oh, Mr. could there be something wrong?
WOMEN: We are waiting just to hear Mr. Tambo do his song.
HAMMY: Mr. Tambo, do you feel good and strong?
CHORUS: Then get right up and the folks how you can sing that song.
MR. TAMBO (PENNY): I hear tell there's a stranger in the Jones household
CHORUS: Ye, sirree, yes, sirree
PENNY: That's what I'm told, I hear tell there's a new arrival six day's old
CHORUS: Yes, sirree, yes, sirree
Worth his wait in gold.
Come right in and meet the son,
christening's done,
time to have some fun

CHORUS: Yes, sirree, yes, sirree
PENNY: Yes, sirree
CHORUS: Yes, sirree, yes, sirree

It's a big holiday everywhere, for the Jones family has a brand-new heir,
he's a joy, heaven-sent, and we proudly present Mr. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones.
When he grows up, he never will stray with a name like the one that he's got today.
When he walks down the street, folks will say,
"Pleased to meet, Mr. Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones.
" What a smile, and how he shows it.
He'll be happy all day long, what a name, I'll bet he knows it.
With that handle, how can he go wrong?
And the folks in the town all agree, he'll be famous, as famous as he can be.
How can he be a dud or a stick-in-the-mud, when he's Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones?
Go to sleep, my baby and maybe you'll balance the budget by and by.
Oh, you're a lucky baby with Franklin D. for your name.
Mrs. Jones' baby boy is a welcome president,
give him a fishing rod for a toy, he's the future president!
When this rascal goes to school ABC's won't matter,
teach him plain old 'rithmetic, and of course some fireside chatter.
My friends, my friends, let's all shout hooray!

It's a big holiday everywhere for the Jones family has a brand-new heir

We'll be proud to affirm when he serves his fourth term, just you wait and see

PENNY: He'll make history
ALL: 'cause he's Franklin D. Roosevelt Jones!

Oh, ring, ring the banjo for Franklin Roosevelt Jones,
but when you hear the banjo, it's played by Mr. Bones

MR. BONES (plays "Swanee River" on the banjo)
