notes:
 Mr. Lincoln gave a speech from the back of a train
Though his fancy language was too hard on my brain
What the heck he meant by this, I'll never know
Four score and twenty years ago

The crowd was murmuring and scratching their heads
And we all tossed and turned that night in our beds
That funny phrase he used compounded our woe
Four score and twenty years ago

When Lincoln's speech was done we all hit the books
And searched in vain for it all day
However, most of us don't know how to read
So we can't look it up anyway

Many years from now I hope to figure it out
And then I'll understand what it was about
In spite of what he said, it was a good show
Four score and twenty years ago
