The New Deal Song
Relief, Recovery, and
A New Deal all over the land. All those acronyms are hard to
SEC, WPA, FDIC, AAA. The New Deal.
The poor eating rats, Fireside Chats
PWA, a Bank Holiday
Insurance for free, with FDIC
The New Deal had government control, Mother Nature gave us a Dust
Bowl. TVA got the South out of the dark, CCC planted some trees in a
park. The New Deal.
Laws signed in pen, happy days again.
Farmers kill goats, destroy all their oats. Huey Long, hates
everything in this song.
The New Deal gave out a lot of money, some of the jobs people did
were quite funny. Government would pay for people to write, by the
Tennessee river … let there be light! The New Deal.
Wagner Act, attempted court pack.
New Dealers, angry court appealers.
There would be more, if not for a second war.
It all started in 1933, years later geasers had Social Security.
FDR’s power was stricken, when the Supreme Court quarantined sick
chicken. The New Deal.
Relief. Recovery. Reform.
