lyrics

Who helped write the Declaration of Independence?
Who negotiated a peace treaty with Britain?
Who spent 8 years behind Washington to learn the ropes?
Who would someday get his own HBO TV show?
John Adams
Who led the Revolution out of Massachusetts?
Who wrote the important pamphlet "Thoughts on Government?"
Who kept his country out of the British and French War?
Who used diplomacy to end the Quasi War?
John Adams
The Alien and Sedition Act was his only great mistake
Ultimately it determined his re-election fate
Who built up the military for the strong defense?
Along with Jefferson he passed away on the Day of Independence
