DT Lyrics:





Subject: My daddy is President
From: Susan of DT
Date: 05 Nov 08 - 02:04 PM

Seeing an Obama family picture reminded me of this JFK/Caroline song. I only remember 4 lines and I don't see it in the DT.

My daddy is President
What does your daddy do?
We live in a big white house
On Pennsylvania Avenue

Anybody know any more of it?

This song is one of many about J.F.K. that I found years ago and now resides with the rest at The Archive Of Folk Culture at the Library Of Congress here in the U.S.A.

Here's what I remember:

My Daddy's the President; what does your Daddy do?
I live in a big white house on Pennsylvania Avenue.
I always hide behind the desk in Daddy's den
When I play hide and seek with Secret Service Men.

This was going through my head today when I heard that Caroline (Kennedy) would like to seek Hillary Clinton's Senate seat... but this is all I could remember. I still picture her as a little girl riding a pony, and standing solemnly watching her Daddy's casket going by.

Here's my transcription from the YouTube "video":

^^
MY DADDY IS PRESIDENT
(David J De Noon, Emanuel Vardi*)

My daddy is President. What does your daddy do?
I live in a big white house on Pennsylvania Avenue.
I always hide behind the desk in Daddy's den
When I play hide-and-seek with Secret Service men.

My daddy is President. We had a busy day.
I'm learning the alphabet: A-B-C-D-J-F-K.
I don't play house; I play the game of government
'Cause my daddy is the President.

At Daddy's first press conf'rence, I made news
Wearing mommy's high-heel shoes;
And ev'ry time I'm able,
I'm under the conf'rence table.

My daddy is President. We make a happy pair.
I go for my pony rides. He rides in his rocking chair.
No matter what I do, it makes a news event,
'Cause my daddy is the President.

[*Authorship credit from ASCAP. As sung by Little Jo Ann, 1962.]

I remember this much of the song from when I was young:

My Daddy is President.
What does your Daddy do?
We live in a big white house
On Pennsylvania Avenue.
When we play Hide 'n Seek, it's with Secret Service men
'Cause my Daddy's the Pesident.

I remember it playing on the radio, and it seems to me that it played through twice, with an interlude between two verses, but I can't recall any of the second verse (which replaced the "Hide 'n Seek" part.) I also still remember the tune!

My daddy is president,
What does your daddy do?
I live in a great big house
On Pennsylvania Avenue.
I always hide behind the desk in daddy's den
When I play hide and seek with secret service men.

My daddy is president
We make a happy pair.
I go for a pony ride,
He rides in his rocking chair.
We don't play house we play the game of government
Cause my daddy is the president.

There's more but I don't remember it.

ha! My father wrote this song. I sang it on Play Your Hunch where a panel hosted by Merv Griffin chose the real singer (not me, but my best friend Jo Ann Morse) after we mouthed the words while the recording played. I can still sing the whole thing, but you can hear it as one person said, clear as a bell, on the YouTube link that still has it up. My father, by the way, is still very much alive and kicking at age 91, but i have lost track of Jo Ann. I believe Dave DaNoon (sp?) wrote the lyrics.
