[Verse 1]
Let's have Christ our president
Let us have him for our king
Cast your vote for the Carpenter
That they call the Nazarene


[Verse 2]
The only way
They can ever beat
These crooked politician men
Is to cast the moneychangers
Out of the temple

Put the Carpenter in

[Verse 3]
Oh it's Jesus Christ our president
God above our king
With a job and pension for young and old
We will make hallelujah ring

[Verse 4]
Every year we waste enough
To feed the ones who starve
We build our civilization up
And we shoot it down with wars

[Verse 5]
But with the Carpenter
On the seat
Way up in the capitol town
The USA
Be on the way
Prosperity bound
