WASHINGTON Scott performing with his band
This is the story of the father of our country
I could never tell a lie 
You could see my big pine teeth when I smiled 
I took Martha for a wife 
Guess my powdered ponytail caught her eye 
 
Wore pants that skimmed my knees 
Who knew this boy would set you free 
Chopped down a cherry tree 
But in the end, this boy came clean 

I am Washington 
My country's favorite son 
I'll make you feel the thunder of my cannonballs 

Crossed the Delaware by night 
Standing up, weight on one foot, what a sight 
Taught those Redcoats we could fight 
Now they sniff and claim our culture is trite 
 
Poor Brits at Bunker Hill 
They stood in line to get killed 
All thirteen colonies 
Taught ol' King George we don't drink tea, No sirree 

I am Washington 
I'll shake my giant gun 
And make you see the wonder of my cannonballs 

     George Washington became 
     The first president of the United States.
     But after eight years
     Even though he was very popular
     He was a big enough man to step down
     And let somebody else become the president
 
It's the story of a life 
Of a ragtag statesman who played the fife 
My friend Benny flew a kite 
Tommy Jefferson declared, "We were right!" 

Popped up on currency 
One dollar bills for all to see 
My place in history 
Earned me a town they call DC, they call DC 
 
I am Washington 
My country's favorite son 
I'll make you feel the thunder of my cannonballs 
I am Washington 
I'll shake my giant gun 
And make you see the wonder of my cannonballs
