IF I WERE PRESIDENT >From the Popeye cartoon "Olive Oyl For President" (1948) (Lyrics: Buddy Kaye / Music: Winston Sharples) Mae Questel (as the voice of Olive Oyl) - 1948 If I were President, if I were President There'd be at least ten months of June For folks to spend their honeymoon And night winds all would have the sweetest scent If I were President If I were President, if I were President Silk worms in every house would grow And they would all be on the go In case there was a stocking accident If I were President There'd be lampposts like you've never seen And streets would all be spotless clean If I were President, if I were President I'd have a cure that would work right For those who couldn't sleep at night The time they stayed awake would be well spent If I were President If I were President, if I were President The dogs whose habits all were strange Would undergo a brand new change An all-day ice cream cone would cost a cent If I were President If I were President, if I were President Each bus would have a smoother run With lots of seats for everyone Apartments once again would be for rent If I were President There would be no wrangling anymore For drumsticks that fell short before If I were President, if I were President I'd pick up feminine morale And get a man for every gal More holidays would get my strong consent If I were President Hear Ye! Hear Ye! I propose the Bachelor Act I hope this motion is carried The Bachelor Tax will convince each guy That it's cheaper to be married (We accept it!) (We reject it!) I propose the Women Wear The Pants In The Family Act This program is quite ambitious There'll be handsome secretaries for every lady's lap While hubby stays home washing dishes (We reject it!) (We accept it!) And for my special Cabinet To give things proper attention I have chosen certain men Whose names I need not mention (We accept it!) (We reject it!) (We accept it!) (We reject it!) (We accept it!) (We reject it!) (We accept it!) (We reject it!) (For she's a jolly good female) (She's a jolly good female) (She's a jolly good female) (We love our President) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2014)
