E-L-E-C-TOR-AL
Electoral College - we've got a tale to tell!

So what if we don't have a football team?
At least we never have to write a theme
No classes, no professors, no tuition
Yet we're the goal of every politician
Because everyone who graduates becomes the president
(Ta da!)

I'm gonna send your vote to college
When you vote for president
And if you'll let me share some knowledge
You'll understand this big event!

The folks who wrote our Constitution
Had the idea for this plan
And it's been used in our elections
Since our government began

When you pull down on my levers for the person of your choice
You're also choosing state electors, who will have the final voice
They're called the electoral college, and they'll meet to stipulate
Who the voters have selected to be the winner in each state

Now, the number of electors
That your state is going to get
Is based on total population
That's a formula that's set

And when the popular vote is counted
To find a winner in each state,
Each state will pledge all of its electors
To choose the winning candidate!

I like it! I like it!

E-L-E-C-TOR-AL
Electoral College - and we deserve a yell!

And even if the vote is close
And someone wins by just a little, tiny hair
Electors give that person all their votes
And it's considered fair and square!

I'm gonna send your vote to college
When you vote for president
And now the electoral college
Will work the way our founders meant

So what if they don't have a big macho football team?
It's every politician's special dream!
Because everyone who graduates
Yes, everyone who graduates
Everyone who graduates becomes the president!
