Lyrics: Pat Read.
Tune: “Whack Fol the Diddle.”


We’ll sing a song of peace and love,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
To the Man who from Washington reigns above,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
May wars in plenty be His share,
Who kept our homes from Want and Care.
“Mein Gut und Roosevelt” is our prayer,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
So we say, “Hip hooray!”
Come and listen while we pray,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

When we were savage, fierce, and wild,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
He came like a poppa to His child,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
He gently raised us from the slime
And kept our hands from stay-in crime,
Gave us conscription in his own good time,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
So we say, “Hip hooray!”
Come and listen while we pray,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

Our fathers oft were naughty boys,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
Slow-downs and strikes are dangerous toys,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
From Detroit’s Briggs to Bishop’s Hill,
They dug their mitts in their masters’ till.
But Meester Roosevelt loves us still,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
So we say, “Hip hooray!”
Come and listen while we pray,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

O Working Folk, forget the past,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
And think of the day that’s coming fast,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
When we’ll all be civilized,
Neat, and clean, No—strike advised.
Oh, won’t Meester Roosevelt be surprised?
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.

Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day,
So we say, “Hip hooray!”
Come and listen while we pray,
Whack fol the diddle doll the dido day.
