My wife and I both teach elementary music. (Summers off together with the kids -- can't be beat.)

A teacher in her building asked her for a song listing the presidents. She asked me to put one together, and here it is.

The piano sound you hear is my Yamaha P-120, and you're hearing the on-board speakers, through the air. I sang into the mics connected to my MiniDisc deck, with the piano sound playing behind me. (I recorded the keyboard part into the P-120's on-board sequencer, earlier.)

Very clever. Any chance of "the impeachment song" for Clinton, or perhaps "back and to the left" for Kennedy. Perhaps the Watergate Waltz or Iran/Contra Bossa for Nixon and Reagan. Seriously, good work. I think that's an excellent way to teach children.

Thanks, Neal. The "all 5s" you gave me on this song are bit of a stretch, tho. smiley But I do appreciate it.

I absolutely love your song. I cannot seem to down loead them from icompositions. It says they were never uploaded. Is there any other way to get them. I am a mom of 4 kids ages 7-11 and we are taking a summer trip and I wanted to teach them the states and there capitals and the presidents. If you could give me any ideas on how to get your music I would be so grateful.

Bobbie Jo, I'll send you an e-mail. I did try to download it myself just now, and it worked for me. So maybe it was a temporary problem.

This song helps kids of all ages, believe it or not. Im a sixteen year old about to enter the 11th grade, and one of my summer assignments was to memorize the presidents for my upcoming U.S. History class. Thanks to your song on my ipod, I can listen to it over and over again on my 7 hour plane ride to France tomorrow. You pretty much saved me. Thanks :]

marla Listener Love the song. I am a homeschooling mom and we are trying to learn the names of the Presidents. Most of the songs I have heard out there include way too much "fluff" for young kids. Your's is catchy and simple, which I appreciate. My problem is that it will not download. Sounds like I am not the only one having this problem. Would love some help!

Hey, Lisa, happy to help.

Looks like I'll have to add to the song this November.

But for now -- you're good to go!

OK, a listener wrote to me asking for the chords, so he could play guitar with his elementary school children on this song. So I made a PDF file with the words and the guitar chords. If anyone wants a free copy, e-mail me and I'll get that to you.

Thanks so much for this song. I hs my 11yo dd and we learned the song for fun. Now she is teaching it to all the kids in our homeschool group, and she made her dad learn it! I'd love it if you wrote a similar song with the states and their capitals. Then we'd like the periodic table, then.... smiley Seriously, please email us with anything else you do. And I'd appreciate the chords if you get a chance, Gale

Gale, I'll send that chord chart to you right away. I am so pleased to hear that the song is useful to you. Yes, I do have some other things you might be able to use. I'll be in touch.
