lyrics

Seems like he's only known for thing and that's serving two nonconsecutive terms
Only Democrat elected to office between 1860 to 1912
Turned his back on the spoils system
Believed government should be limited

Non-interventionist foreign policy
Strongly was against imperialism

Vetoed almost everything that came across his desk it seemed
Fought for sound money, the gold standard
Not cheap money pay up
this would cause him the next election
But four years later he's back and
Boom the country's in a depression
It's not your fault poor Cleveland
It's not your fault poor Cleveland
Grover
Grover Cleveland

Ma, ma, where's my pa? Gone to the White House ha ha ha

The second term was rough and he did his best
But things still got worse, yeah they still got worse
Stood firm on his foreign policy
Kept the country out of Cuba and Hawaii
First married in the White House
First to have a child born there also

Had integrity
And had virtue
Unfortunate events
Hurt his legacy

Vetoed almost everything that came across his desk it seemed
Fought for sound money, the gold standard
Not cheap money pay up
this would cause him the next election
But four years later he's back and
Boom the country's in a depression
It's not your fault poor Cleveland
It's not your fault poor Cleveland
Grover
Grover Cleveland
