Ben Franklin Lyrics

Old Ben Franklin, I think we should thank him
Was a poet and a diplomat
He put a key out in a cage till he saw the lightning
strike
But what's shocking is he did more than that

Chorus:
He put my focals on the nose, made a better wood stove
The lightning rods in all the homes in Philly
He helped the declaration pass, he made music out a
class
Fought the British as a lot of things were silly

Old Ben Franklin, I think we should thank him
Was the word's most industrious guy
He said early to bed, and early the rise
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise

Chorus:
He put my focals on the nose, made a better wood stove
The lightning rods in all the homes in Philly
He helped the declaration pass, he made music out a
class
Fought the British as a lot of things were silly

He was a fireman
He was an inventor
He was kite flier
He was a lighter
He was... for general
An ambassador
He was a musician
A revolutionary
He was a philosopher...

Chorus:
He put my focals on the nose, made a better wood stove
The lightning rods in all the homes in Philly
He helped the declaration pass, he made music out a
class
Fought the British as a lot of things were silly

He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for
anything else
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest
Fish and gas go bad after three days
A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle

Say, hey Benny, they didn't put you on the penny
Though you... with your mighty
..a penny saved is a penny earned
So they put you on the hundred bill

Chorus:
He put my focals on the nose, made a better wood stove
The lightning rods in all the homes in Philly
He helped the declaration pass, he made music out a
class
Fought the British as a lot of things were silly
That's rich!
