Six bearded presidents, all of them forgotten
Now make high school students think that history is rotten
Mark T. dubbed this era, 1870 to 90
The Gilded Age, a phrase that stuck, and now it seems to bind me
Gilded, also known as deceptively attractive
This time period sucked, anything good was short lived
Occasionally a law was passed, a bill was enacted
But then it would be ruined when the other side reacted

From Ulysses S Grant
To Bill Henry Harrison
Hist’ry students can’t
Find any comparison
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
It really sucks

Grant was faced with scandal and corruption
Nonetheless he won a second election
76 saw Hayes defeat Tilden
Sold out the blacks, basically killed them
Garfield won next, in one year he got shot
Arthur took over , his accomplishments were naught
Grover Cleveland, what a name, lowered the tax
Harrison won in 88, the Gilded Era’s last

From Ulysses S Grant
To Bill Henry Harrison
Hist’ry students can’t
Find any comparison
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
It really sucks

From Ulysses S Grant
To Bill Henry Harrison
Hist’ry students can’t
Find any comparison
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
Cuz the Gilded Age sucks
It really sucks
