[I guess that’s what happens when you go from a spoiled rich kid (70 year old child when elected) to someone (President of the United States and leader of the Free World) who has to “work” because the job demands it of you.  Which is probably why he never really wanted the job.  —  KMAB]

If I Had a Hammer

If I had a hammer
I’d hammer in the morning
I’d hammer in the evening
All over this land
I’d hammer out danger
I’d hammer out a warning
I’d hammer out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, uh
If I had a bell
I’d ring it in the morning
I’d ring it in the evening
All over this land
I’d ring out danger
I’d ring out a warning
I’d ring out love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
If I had a song
I’d sing it in the morning
I’d sing it in the evening
All over this land
I’d sing out danger
I’d sing of out a warning
I’d sing out the love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land, oh
Well, I’ve got a hammer
And I’ve got a bell
And I’ve got a song to sing
All over this land
It’s the hammer of justice
It’s the bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
It’s a hammer of justice
It’s a bell of freedom
It’s a song about love between
My brothers and my sisters
All over this land
Performed by: Peter, Paul and Mary
Songwriters: Lee Hays / Pete Seeger
