Happy Birthday!

The Ancient Spouse was born on this day many, many, many years ago.

Several years later, the 32nd president,

Franklin D Roosevelt was born:

1/30/1882
(d. April 12, 1945)

        Just hand me my old Martin for soon I will be startin'
        Back to dear old Charleston far away
        Since Roosvelt's been reelected, we'll not be neglected
        We've got Franklin D. Roosevelt back again.

                "We've Got Franklin Delano Roosevelt Back Again,"
                 DigTrad filename[ FDRBACK

But in the days of the Soviet-German alliance, the Almanac Singers sang:

        Oh, Franklin Roosevelt told the people how he felt.
        We damn near believed what he said,
        He said "I hate war, and so does Eleanor
        But we won't be safe 'till everybody's dead."

                "Ballad of October 16," words by Millard Lampell & Lee Hays as the
                Almanac Singers on That's Why We're Marching, Smith/Folkways CD
                AND Library of Congress American Memory Collection

ALSO:
British poet and "folk" songwriter Les Barker born Jan 30, 1947. He must be held responsible for the likes of: "Dachshunds with Erections Can't Climb Stairs," "Hard Cheese of Old England" and "Will the Turtle Be Unbroken"
