lyrics

Played football at Michigan
Turned down the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers
Instead went to Yale to study law and coach
Even spent a summer working Yellowstone
Served in the Navy in World War 2
Held on to bachelorhood
Next he was Congressmen
After wedding Betty

He was Gerald Ford
Classic moderate
Did not shake things up too much
He was Gerald Ford
Tried to heal the wounds
That his predecessor caused
Studied the death of JFK
But did he get it right?
Survived two assassination tries
Gerald Ford

Struggled with public speaking
Pardoned Nixon soon after sworn in
Dealt with oil shortages and inflation
Worried greatly about the deficit

He was Gerald Ford
Classic moderate
Did not shake things up too much
He was Gerald Ford
Tried to heal the wounds
That his predecessor caused
Studied the death of JFK
But did he get it right?
Survived two assassination tries
Gerald Ford
