Lyrics



I Chopped Down That Cherry Tree

I chopped down that cherry tree, mother; I chopped down that tree
I chopped down that cherry tree yeah you can blame it on me
I chopped down that cherry tree now I gonna be a star
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree to make myself a guitar

I chopped down that cherry tree, mother; I can't tell a lie
Chopping down that cherry tree was like eating apple pie
I chopped down that cherry tree now I gonna be a star
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made myself a guitar

I woke up soon one morning and had this bright idea
I says I gonna be the President, so don't worry, mother dear
I gonna be on TV, I gonna be a star
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar

I'm gonna call out my militia, gonna police the world
I'm gonna paint my flag blue, red and white and teach my kids to fight
I gonna be the President, I gonna stop the wars
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar

I'm gonna a point a committee to investigate the world
I'm gonna legislate all the fifty states and close all the water gates
I gonna be the President and everybody'll know who I are
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar

I chopped down that cherry tree, mother; I can't tell a lie
Chopping down that cherry tree was like eating apple pie
I chopped down that cherry tree now I gonna be a star
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made myself a guitar

I woke up soon one morning and had this bright idea
I says I gonna be the President, so don't worry, mother dear
I gonna be on TV, I gonna be a star
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar

I'm gonna call out my militia, gonna police the world
I'm gonna paint my flag blue, red and white and teach my kids to fight
I gonna be the President, I gonna stop the wars
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar

I'm gonna a point a committee to investigate the world
I'm gonna legislate all the fifty states and close all the water gates
I gonna be the President and everybody'll know who I are
Cause I chopped down that cherry tree and I made this here guitar


I chopped down that cherry tree, mother!
I can't tell a lie!
