James K. Polk by They Might Be Giants

In 1844 the democrats were split

The three nominees for the presidential candidate

Were martin van buren a former president and an abolitionist

James buchanan a moderate louis cass a general and expansionist


From nashville came a dark horse riding up

He was james k. polk napoleon of the stump


Austere severe he held few people dear

His oratory filled his foes with fear

The factions soon agreed he's just the man we need

To bring about victory fulfill our manifest destiny

And annex the land the mexicans command

And when the vote was cast the winner was

Mister james k. polk napoleon of the stump


In four short years he met his every goal

He seized the whole southwest from mexico

Made sure the tariffs fell

And made the english sell the oregon territory

He built an independent treasury

Having done all this he sought no second term


But precious few have mourned the passing of

Mister james k. polk our eleventh president

Young hickory napoleon of the stump
