now, when poor ol' abe lincoln's life

was cut short by a gun
he found himself in heaven
where he met george washington
.
they started to discuss
who was the greatest president
and i am here to tell you
just exactly how it went
.
first, george exclaimed to abraham
" a twenty five cent piece
was minted in my honor
so my glory would not cease "
.
" they lauded you the same way
but a penny was the sum
and the lowly pittance ain't enough
to buy a piece of gum "
.
then abraham retorted
"look here, mister washington
when they designed your paper bill
your rating was just one"
.
"i do believe i beat you
as the greatest while alive
because my handsome face
can be seen grinning on the five"
.
then george became quite angry
and he spat, "i'll tell you, son
my monument's the highest point
you'll find in washington"
.
"please take note that the capitol
is blessed to have my name
while you have lincoln, illinois
that hardly is the same"
.
then abe cried, "in MY monument
i'm daunting in my chair
your little concrete deal
looks like a phallic symbol there"
.
then george roared, "what an ugly mole
disfiguring your face
and that stupid ratty top hat
is entirely out of place"
.
then abe yelled, "you have wooden teeth
and sport a powdered wig
and while i cut down mighty oaks
you axed a little twig"
.
then george jumped right on top of abe
and he began to pound
but abe soon got the upper hand
and threw george to the ground
.
then all the other presidents
began to form a crowd
and started laying bets down
just as much as was allowed
.
a lot of blood was spilled
before this fight was finally through
who was the greatest president ?
i'll leave that up to you
