Honest Abe added 8-7-97 Original Author Unknown

Sung to: "Yankee Doodle"

I Love the name of Abraham
We see him on our money
His picture's on the $5.00 bill
And also on our penny.
Honest Abe is what he's called
Honest, kind and true.
He was our 16th President
He loved both me and you, sir.


It's a Special Day added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

It's a very special day today,
Yes sir! (Clap twice.)
It's a very special day today,
Yes sir! (Clap twice.)
It's President's Day,
When we can shout and say,
"Have a happy, happy, happy, happy, day!" (Clap twice.)


George Washington added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

Sung to: "Yankee Doodle"

One time there was a little boy
Who had a little hatchet
He looked and looked around to find
A little tree to catch it
At least he spied a cherry tree
His father's pride and joy
He chopped it down, right to the ground
My! What a naughty boy!
And then he heard an angry voice
It sounded like a cymbal
George knew he was in trouble great
And he began to tremble
Who cut this tree, my son did you?
His father asked the question.
Yes, it was I. I cannot lie.
I cut it with my hatchet!
Chorus:
Georgie, Georgie, no, no, no.
Be careful what you do.
Hatchets can be dangerous
And you might get hurt too!


George Washington the first added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

Sung to: "Yankee Doodle"

George Washington was the first
President of our country,
The people loved him, one and all,
He worked to make our land free.
He led the soldiers-that was hard,
For they were cold and hungry.
He said, "Be brave, now don't give up.
We'll build a brand new country."


Lincoln added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

Through hard work, skill, & determination. (wipe forehead)
Lincoln became one of America's greatest men. (one finger)
He was a peace-loving man who was just. (hand to heart)
Equal rights for all was a must! (spread arms)


George Washington added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

A very old legend tells me (point to self)
George Washington cut down a cherry tree. (pretend to chop)
Because he would not tell a lie, (shake head sideways)
When asked who did this terrible deed, (deep voice, place hands on hips)
He said, "Dear Father, it was I." (point to self)
Although this story is only a legend, (shake head sideways)
It reminds me that George Washington
Was a brave & honest man.


Three Corners added 8-7-97 Submitted by: Cheryl

My hat it has 3 corners. (form triangle above head)
Three corners has my hat.
If it did not have 3 corners, (raise 3 fingers fingers)
It would not be my hat. (shake head sideways)

Who's fine face is on the penny?

Who Chopped Down... added 2-4-01 Original Author Unknown

Sung to: " Do you know the
Muffin Man"

Do you know who chopped down the tree
Chopped down the tree, chopped down the tree
Do you know who chopped down the tree
Dad asked George one Day.

Yes I know who chopped down the tree,
Chopped down the tree, chopped down the tree
Yes I know who chopped down the tree
Honest George did say.

It was I who chopped down the tree
Chopped down the tree, chopped down the tree
It was I who chopped down the tree
I'm sorry, but it's true.

Thank you George, you told the truth
You told the truth, you told the truth
Thank you George, you told the truth
I am proud of you.
