lyrics

Here's a little bit about John Quincy Adams
Was a smart man, oldest song of John Adams
Career politician, he loved to debate
Diplomat, Senator, Secretary of State
And 17 years as Representative
Oh yeah! Did I mention that he was President?

Drafted whole portions of the Monroe Doctrine
Swam naked everyday in the Potomac
Pushed for new technology in infrastructure
The Erie Canal and the Cumberland Road
He was a strong voice against slavery
He sent troops to protect the Cherokee

He was a fierce fighter
