Who is on the United States Money Song, a Singable Picture Book

Posted on: November 14, 2012

My son Mo thought of the idea for this song and words magically sprang to mind, to the tune of the Can-Can, for the names of the notable Americans whose faces grace our coins and paper money.

WHO IS ON THE UNITED STATES MONEY SONG
Sing to the Tune of the Can-Can
Words by Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus

Lincoln is on the penny
Jefferson is on the nickel
Roosevelt is on the dime
George Washington is on the quarter

JFK and Ben half dollars
And the dollar coins are graced by
Eisenhower, Anthony and Sacagawea.

And the dollar
It has George Washington
And the five bill
It has Abe Lincoln

And the ten has
Alexander Hamilton
And the twenty
Andrew Jackson

US Grant is on the Fifty
And one hundred has Ben Franklin
These are most the monies made by
Our United States.
