GROUP (singing): Ike for president, Ike for president,
Ike for president, Ike for president.

You like Ike, I like Ike,
Everybody likes Ike—for president.
Hang out the banners, beat the drums,
We'll take Ike to Washington.

We don't want John or Dean or Harry.
Let's do that big job right.
Let's get in step with the guy that's hep.
Get in step with Ike.

You like Ike, I like Ike,
Everybody likes Ike—for president.
Hang out the banners, beat the drums,
We'll take Ike to Washington.

We've got to get where we are going,
Travel day and night-for president.
But Adlai goes the other way.
We'll all go with Ike.

You like Ike, I like Ike,
Everybody likes Ike-for president.
Hang out the banner, beat the drums,
We'll take Ike to Washington.
We'll take Ike to Washington.
