This old man, he played one,
He cut back in Washington,
With a knick Knack paddy whack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man should go back home.

This old man, he played two,
He is doing it to me and you

This old man, he played three,
No more kids' school lunches free

This old man, he played four,
Now we're in El Salvador

This old man, he played five,
ERA did not survive

This old man, he played six,
He was better in the flicks

This old man, he played seven,
Now big business is in heaven

This old man, he played eight,
He helped Nancy decorate

This old man, he played nine,
B-1 bombers all in line

This old man, he played ten,
Let's go back and vote again
