The Lyrics

The early Presidents, in parody writing as in life, are proving to be the toughest. And wasn't no man tougher in his time than Andrew Jackson.
(The Andy man! Hey, Andy man!)

Hey, kids! Gather around, the Andy man is here!
What do you want?
Beat the British?
Beat the Indians?
Beat the bankers?
Beat the Whigs?
Well, you've come to the right man
because I'm the Andy man!

Who gets up at sunrise, gets up on his horse
Leads his men to victory in elections or wars?
The Andy man.
(The Andy man.)
Whoa, the Andy man can.
(The Andy man can.)
The Andy man can 'cause he's tougher than his foes
and gives it to 'em good.
(Gives it to 'em good.)

Oh, who takes all the bankers
(Who takes all the bankers)
challenge 'em to duels
(challenge 'em to duels)
takes it to the people, makes the Whigs all look like fools?
The Andy man.
(The Andy man.)
Whoa, the Andy man can.
(The Andy man can.)
The Andy man can 'cause he's tougher than his foes
and gives it to 'em good.
(Gives it to 'em good.)

(The Andy man fights through the day and nights
trying to get satisfaction!)
Puts the Democrats to action
under leadership of Jackson!

Oh, who can take the soldiers
(Who can take the soldiers)
drill 'em to a dream
(drill 'em to a dream)
keep 'em all so loyal to the Democratic team?
The Andy man.
(The Andy man.)
Whoa, the Andy man can.
(The Andy man can.)
The Andy man can 'cause he's tougher than his foes
and gives it to 'em good.
(Gives it to 'em good.)

(The Andy man creams guys at New Orleans
after the Treaty of Ghenty!)
Victories, Old Hickory had plenty.
That's why he is on the twenty!

Oh, who can take the soldiers
(Who can take the soldiers)
drill 'em to a dream
(drill 'em to a dream)
keep 'em all so loyal to the Democratic team?
The Andy man.
(The Andy man.)
Whoa, the Andy man can.
(The Andy man can.)
The Andy man can 'cause he's tougher than his foes
and gives it to 'em good.
(Gives it to 'em good.)

Yes, the Andy man can 'cause he's tougher than his foes
and gives it to 'em good.
(Gives it to 'em good.)

The Andy man! The Andy man! The Andy man!
(Gives it to 'em good.)

The Andy man! The Andy man! The Andy man!
(Gives it to 'em good.)

The Andy man! The Andy man! The Andy man!
(Gives it to 'em good.)
(repeat 'til fade)
