For the state to open the gate to the president of these united states
In fact everybody was glad to welcome roosevelt to trinidad
We are privileged to see the democratic president of the great republic
With his charming and genial personality and his wonderful urbanity
We were struck by his modest style and we were intrigued by the famous roosevelt smile
No wonder why everybody was glad to welcome roosevelt to trinidad
Now we understand that the president has just been on a visit to brazil and the argentine
Mr. cordell hull in attendance they took part in a peace conference
To stop war and atrocity and make the world safe for democracy
The greatest event in the century in the interest of suffering humanity

Au Contraire

David Bowie came to town
Flying overhead
"Don't you dig my chops?" he cried
This is what they said
Au contraire, Dave
Quite the opposite, in fact
As it happens, au contraire
Au contraire, mon frre
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Knew not what to do
"This tie clashes with my hat," he cried
"Don't you think that's true?"
Au contraire, Delano
Hate to rain on your parade
As it happens, au contraire
Au contraire, mon frre
Jodie Foster held two pair
Bach had three of a kind
Gandhi said, "With my full house,
I will blow your mind!"

Cowtown

Im going down to cowtown
The cows a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and thats where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves
And thats where I will be
Im gonna see the cow beneath the sea
The yellow roosevelt avenue leaf overturned
The ardor of arboreality is an adventure we have spurned, weve spurned
A new leaf overturned
Its a new leaf overturned
And so Im going down to cowtown
The cows a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and thats where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves
And thats where I will be
Im gonna see the cow beneath the sea
We yearn to swim for home, but our only home is bone
How sleepless is the egg knowing that which throws the stone
Foresees the bone, the bone
Our only home is bone

Give Peace A Chance

Recorded live at the varsity stadium, toronto, 13 september 1969
-"ah, this is what we came for really...
It's, eh...'give peace a chance' so sing along with it.
I've forgotten all the bits in between but i know the chorus so..."
Ein, schwei, ein, schwei, drei, vier!
Ev'rybody's talkin' 'bout:
Bagism and dragism and bagism and shagism-ism,
That-ism, prisonism, ism, ism.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
Ev'rybody's talkin' 'bout:
Revolution, evolution, masturbation,
Castration, united nations, congratulation,
Maybe, maybe.
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
Ev'rybody's talkin' 'bout:
John and yoko, eric clapton, klaus voorman,
Penny lane, roosevelt, nixon, tommy jones and
Tommy cooper, that's all there.

My dad came out of the Roosevelt era and the Depression. One person and one party made a difference in his life. That's what everybody forgot when they called my father and other people political bosses.

Roosevelt's magic lay in one facet of his personality: He knew how to take the risk. No other man in public life I knew could so readily take the challenge of the new.

I would say that President Roosevelt probably was more intimately in touch with the press corps at the White House than President Truman was.

Can any of us even imagine, after Pearl Harbor, President Roosevelt suggesting we negotiate a resolution or that we could simply prosecute those involved? Of course it is unimaginable. We are right to be in the Middle East, and we are right to treat this as the war it is.
