IRVING BERLIN lyrics - I Like Ike

IRVING BERLIN
"I Like Ike"

I like Ike
I'll shout it over a mike
Or a phone
Or from the highest steeple

I like Ike
And Ike is easy to like
Stands alone
The choice of "We the People"

A leader we can call
Without political noise
He can lead us all
As he led the boys

Let's take Ike
A man we all of us like
Makes no deals
His favors can't be curried
And Uncle Joe is worried
'Cause we like Ike

[Alternate last lines:]
Tried and true
Courageous, strong and human
Why, even Harrry Truman
Says, "I like Ike"
