I'M GONNA VOTE REPUBLICAN
(Harry Stewart)
As recorded by Yogi Yorgesson with Johnny Duffy and The Scandahoovians, Capitol (2135), 1952.

I'm going to vote Republican no matter which one of them runs.
I tell you, boys, we need a change from these Democrat son-of-a-guns.
A hot Republican president will make this here government purr.
This job's too big for donkeys now; let an elephant start in to work.

Taxes, taxes (?) taxes Democrats spend foolishly.
Let's elect a careful tightwad from the G.O.P.
A big head of cabbage used to cost a nickel, I think, or a bob(?).
That nickel that the cabbage cost is enough for a small Brussels sprout.

The butcher shops they are full of meat, but with all the money I make,
These Democrats have prices up so I can't afford hamburger steak.
Republicans they have fin'lly got a man we all think is great.
The Democrats all wanted him to be their number one candidate.

(?) they have made me stop and think.
There's one word that sums it up, a word that rhymes with mink.
Several Republicans got their eye on the president's seat back there.
I hope some good Republican will get more than his eye on that chair.
