In Case Your Were Curious…
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 9:32 am

Here are the lyrics (so you can sing along today):

Hail to The Chief

Hail to the Chief we have chosen for the nation,
Hail to the Chief! We salute him, one and all.
Hail to the Chief, as we pledge cooperation
In proud fulfillment of a great, noble call.

Yours is the aim to make this grand coun-try grander,
This you will do, That’s our strong, firm belief.
Hail to the one we selected as commander,
Hail to the President! Hail to the Chief!

Via: Patriotic Song Lyrics!

    1. Thanks. I never knew them and I have a habit of singing the “shower” lyrics from Dave whenever I hear the song. Drives people nuts! Maybe I’ll sing the real words now…

    2. Hail to Steven Taylor, He's a Blogger Who Needs Hailing
      Oh darn, I thought the lyrics went something like:

      Hail to the chief, he's the chief and he needs hailing…

      Thanks to the always enlightening Steven Taylor, now we know there are real lyrics and not simply a hailure of imagination.

    3. Hail to the Chief …
      Steven Taylor has graciously reprinted the lyrics to Hail to the Chief. I must admit I prefer Kevin Kline’s version from ‘Dave’ … “Hail to the Cheif cause he’s the one we hail to …”…

    5. I believe the version in Dave goes “Hail to the Chief, he’s the one we say hail to.” Always cracks me up.

    6. I still prefer the version in Dave
      Steven Taylor has tracked down the actual lyrics for “Hail to the Chief,? for those watching the inauguration on TiVo delay or the morbidly curious. I missed the whole affair because the faculty was spending its time arguing about schedule…

      So, I’m driving to lunch today and, after hearing an ABC news brief in which Hail to the Chief was…

    8. For Chris, the Dave version:

      “Hail to the chief, he’s the one we all say hail to.

      We all say “hail” cause he keeps himself so clean.

      He’s got the power, that’s why he’s in the shower…”

    9. I like the lyrics from the movie “My Fellow Americans” with James Garner and Jack Lemmon. They both had made up lyrics to the song. One of them, I think it was from James Garner’s character, went “Hail to the Chief, if you don’t I’m gonna kill ya . . .”

      It’s a pretty funny movie too.

    10. my boyfriend always hums the tune but when i told him the song had words he FREAKED OUT! i’d heard the words on “First Daughter” and looked up the complete lyrics on a web site. then i sang the words to him and he HATES the song now b/c he thinks the words are so stupid…=)
