Genre: Comedy
Country: USA


Just hand me my old Martin,
For soon I will be startin',
Back to dear old Charleston far away,
Since Roosevelt's been re-election,
we'll not be neglected,
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.

(CHORUS:)
Back again, back again,
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.
Since Roosevelt's been re-elected,
Moonshite liquor's been corrected,
We've got legal wine, whisky beer and gin.

I'll take a drink of brandy,
And let myself be handy,
Good old times are coming back again.
You can laugh and tell a joke,
You can dance and drink and smoke.
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.

(Alternate CHORUS:)
Back again, back again,
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.
We'll have money in our jeans,
We can travel with the Queen,
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.

No more breadlines, we're happy to say,
The donkey won election day,
No more standing in the blowing snowing rain,
He's go thinks in full swing,
We're all working and getting our pay,
We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.

(CHORUS)
