The Lyrics

Here it is! P3: The Presidential Parody Project is complete! Final entry: Benjamin Harrison (1833-1901), the 19th President, March 4, 1889 to March 4, 1893. He was emotionally very cold, known as the Indiana Iceberg. As for his performance in office, that wasn't so hot either. He "beat" Grover Cleveland, losing the popular vote but won the Electoral Vote with some shenanigans, then got beat by Cleveland four years later after economic disaster struck. About all you can say about him was, he was President.
Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
I think I am through, now, don't you?

If a man ever needed beating he did.
No one had a right to end the protective tariff.
And I don't care he was a hangman-sheriff.
Bad times for business coming!
And that's why I am running!

Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
I think I am through, now, don't you?

It hurts to see the land that I've undone
to see the silver purchase bringing trouble to the land.
I'll never have a great war and troops to command.
I need help from G.O.P.
or Cleveland, he will come back, baby!

Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
I think I am through, now, don't you?

I hope this Hoosier finds his way to you.
Forgive me, people, for the downturns, and the scandal and shame
and for making Secretary of State James G. Blaine.
I thought the people adored me.
Good Lord, it seems they can't afford me.

Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
Indiana sent me!
Please, don't send me back there!
I think I am through, now, don't you?

Indiana sent me! (The votes are coming in...)
Please, don't send me back there! (...we can project New York for Cleveland...)
Indiana sent me! (...and it seems...)
Please, don't send me back there! (...that the President won't even be...)
Indiana sent me! (...winning his home State...)
Please, don't send me back there! (...of Indiana...)
Indiana sent me! (...not a bad broadcast...)
Please, don't send me back there! (...considering the radio hasn't been invented yet...)
