“Typical Self-Made American” – Strike Up the Band

Music: George Gershwin   Lyrics: Ira Gershwin

Written by Americans to make fun of Americans, the title of this Gershwin number is how every President would love to describe himself.  Therefore it is the ideal song for the day most Presidents assume office.  In all actuality, the song as well as the political satire it stems from lampoons Americans as hungry for war, a quality no President would want to be associated with.
