The Lyrics

Millard Fillmore is one of the least known Presidents of the United States of America. He served as President from 1850-1853, after President Zachary Taylor died. He wasn't a very good President, though, and he goes down in history as one of the worst Presidents ever. However, he is one of my favorite Presidents.
Come and listen to my story about the thirteenth Prez.
Poor old Millard almost made the country dead.
Then one day when he was lookin for something to do,
when up came a political opponent who was very rude.
"You're terrible. You're no good. You're awful."

Well, it wasn't too long before old Millard was outta there.
The Whigs all said, "Millard, get away from here."
But then he said, "The White House is the place I wanna be!"
So in 1856, he was the American Party nominee.
James Buchanan won. Millard did terrible. He lost.
