Perry Como - "It Gets Lonely In The White House" lyrics

It gets lonely in the White House when your cares begin
and the White House is a big place to be lonely in
When you're all alone there starin' into space
and you wish the man you ran against could be there in your place!

It gets lonely in the White House when you've been attacked
by the loyal opposition getting in the act
If you make the wrong decision, when the final chips are down
the White House is the loneliest place in town!
It gets lonely in the White House when you're sitting there
and you have to do your thinkin' in a rockin' chair
When some exercise would keep you feelin' well
but a journey to the golf course and the country's gone to hell!

When the budget isn't balanced and you're in the red
and you feel it would be better to be dead than red
When your speech is optimistic but the stocks keep tumblin' down
the White House is the loneliest place in town!
