i freed the slaves and saved the union
and what thanks do i get?
a tiny portrait of my bad side on a single cent
now you give me a penny for my thoughts
i think i'll give it back
my mind is a dangerous thing now, baby
but the guy you got now is a hack

so get me off of this coin
'cos i don't like either side
who did tell you life's either/or now?
they surely lied!

    General CommentEach of these "Get Me Off This Coin" songs seem to be told from the aspects of old US Presidents who have been featured on US currency but no longer want to.
