The Lyrics

I was gonna do War's "Low Rider" as "Rough Rider," but it came out really lame. Not that TR would've approved using the Doors for his song, especially since he was a better writer than Jim Morrison, but this is better. If he came back and saw who was in the White House 100 years later, he'd take that big stick, but he wouldn't speak softly.
(long instrumental opening)

Rider on the rough.
Rider on the rough.
In New York City born.
Out West he became tough.
Like a dog mangy and gruff
he don't take any guff.
Rider on the rough.

There's a plan for a canal.
His brain is working on it, pal.
Takes isthmus right away.
Teddy has his say.
'Cause in Cuba he did ride
Spain's empire did die.
Planning for canal.
Yeah...

Folks, you gotta love this man.
Folks, you gotta love this man.
He's Republican
but he understands
the world's land he defends
and labor is his friend.
Gotta love this man.
Yeah...

Rider on the rough.
Rider on the rough.
In New York City born.
Out West he became tough.
Like a dog mangy and gruff
he don't take any guff.
Rider on the rough.

Rider on the rough.
Rider on the rough.
Rider on the rough.
Rider on the rough.

(long instrumental close)
Good to the last drop?

He was a geek who built himself up into a macho-uber-geek, and I admire him for that.
