lyrics

From a wealthy, powerful
family in the Cincinnati
Goal to be Supreme Court justice
In his mind all along
Sad he's remembered for getting
Stuck in the White House bath tub
When he really quite was
Special for his humility

William Howard Taft (Taft Taft Taft)

Doesn't get all the credit
For being one of the smartest
Presidents we ever had
His wife Nellie was quite smart too
Was great at finding balance
between the crazy right and left
Supported anti-trust measures
and "Dollar Diplomacy"

Couldn't escape the shadow of T.R.
Good friends but later enemies
Hated the role of politician
Always wanted to be just judge

William Howard Taft (Taft Taft Taft)

Split the Republican Party
Glad not to be re-elected

Influential as the chief justice for nine years
Only one to serve in both offices
In his later years he fought so hard for world peace
He was kind of like a Founding Father

William Howard Taft (Taft Taft Taft)
