lyrics

Mid 1850s the North and South couldn't get along and there he stood
Tried to make everyone happy but instead had the reverse effect
Baby Pierce supported the passing of the Kansas-Nebraska Act
Led to Bleeding Kansas, the law proved to be not the best idea

The tragic
life of
a dough face
Franklin Pierce you had promise, but you got no love, even to this day

Only President from New Hampshire a Democrat from the North
Social bug in the spotlight tried to hide his personal struggles at home
Got the Gadsden Purchase but the Ostend Manifesto hurt his reputation
and the Democrats
completely abandoned him
