Glenn Miller - At the President's Birthday Ball

rate me

(Irving Berlin)

(vocals:Marion Hutton & the Modernaires)

Bands are playing

Let's go swaying

At the President's birthday ball

They'll be welcoming one and all

Happy birthday,

Best-on-Earth day

To the President FDR*

From Americans near and far

Look forward to much happier times

Look forward as we join in the grand march, the March of Dimes**

Check your sorrow till tomorrow

For the heavens will soon be bright

And we're gonna have fun tonight

There'll be rhythm and mirth

At the president's birthday ball!

Look forward to much happier times

Look forward as we join in the grand march, the March of Dimes**

Check your sorrow till tomorrow

For the heavens will soon be bright

And we're gonna have fun tonight

There'll be rhythm and mirth

At the president's birthday ball!

(*: Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882 – 1945), 32nd US President from 1933 to 1945;

his birthday was on January 30th)

(**:The March of Dimes was started by President Roosevelt.

Roosevelt had polio himself and all of the school children in America were

supposed to bring dimes to school all over the country and the money

collected was to be used to find a cure for polio. This was an annual

occurrence. ----Notes by Andy Davison)
