    I have a new Schoolhouse Rock song from Election Collection DVD. It's called Presidential Minute sung by Jack Sheldon and music by George Newall. Here are the lyrics of this song.

    Four years have passed It's time again to state the main event

    Election Day is drawing near We'll pick our president

    Republicans and Democrats hold national conventions

    They built their party platforms to broadcast their intentions

    The candidates they nominate will surely have potential

    They'll have to campaign long and hard to prove they're presidential

    With whistle stops and photo ops and great debates and TV spots

    Posters, pics even dirty tricks They run for president

    The key states are the bigger ones with larger populations

    They have the electoral votes it takes to win elections

    Abe Lincoln, Grant and FDR They all got here this way

    Be sure your mom and dad get out to vote Election Day

    After whistle stops and photo ops and great debates and TV spots

    Election Day, we'll have our say and pick a president

    (Speaking) Exercise your votes!

    So what do you guys think?

    It's nice and it's even better that it doesn't involve the cut-throating of politics in any form. Well done!
