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

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
