We Want A Woman In The White House

Contributed by Margaret Chase Smith Library


Sheet music of a song written by Bucky Searles and Dick Nirenberg and copyrighted in 1964 for Republican Margaret Chase Smith's presidential campaign.

The words to the song are as follows : We want a woman in the White House, we want some hist'ry to be made....To make the country hustle, give Uncle Sam a bustle, and make the Gen'ral Staff the ladie's aid. We want a woman with some know-how....Someone to carry on the fight....She'd eliminate a war and be home again by four, She's a woman and a woman's always right. She has a secret weapon that would cast a peaceful spell. It's "Bingo" played by Hotline with Nikita and Fidel. Evacuate the Pentagon; On this we're standing pat....But leave the building standing and we'll put in a laundromat. WE WANT A WOMAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, Someone who really knows the score she would make the G.O.P. join the Democrats for tea, With a WOMAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, and you know that it's the right house, with a woman President in Sixty-Four.
