Well, we’ve run through the Clay and Frelinghuysen songbook. So it’s time to move on. I think I’ll turn to the 1888 Harrison v. Cleveland campaign, using a pro-Harrison songbook.
But that won’t stop me from running a quick anti-Harrison song first!
To the tune of My Grandfather’s Clock
His grandfather’s hat is too big for his head
But Ben tries it on just the same.
It fits him too quick, as has oft times been said,
With regard to Ben Harrison’s fame.
It was bought long ago and it made a pretty show
In the famous Hard Cider campaign
But it won’t… fit…even a little bit,
On Benjamin Harrison’s brain.
