We'd Like to Thank You Herbert Hoover (From "Annie") Lyrics

 

We'd Like to Thank You Herbert Hoover - Original Cast/Soundtrack/The New Musical Cast

Today we're living in a shanty

 

Today we're scrounding for a meal

 

Today I'm stealing coal for fires

 

Who knew I could steal

 

I used to winter in the tropics

 

I spent my summers at the shore

 

I used to throw away the paper

 

I don't anymore

 

We'd like to thank you: Herber 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 pt he said "a chicken"

 

But Herbert Hoover he forgot

 

Not only don't we have the chicken

 

We ain't got the pot

 

You left behind a greatful nation

 

So Herb our hats are off to you

 

We're up to here with admiration

 

Come down and have a little stew

 

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

 

For really showing us the way

 

You dirty rat you Bureaucrat you

Made us what we are today
