    Lyrics

    Upon a February morn
    A tiny baby boy was born
    Abraham, Abraham

    When he grew up this tiny babe
    Folks all called him Honest Abe
    Abraham, Abraham

    In eighteen sixty, he became
    The sixteenth president
    And now he's in the hall of fame
    A most respected gent

    That's why we celebrate
    This blessed February date
    Abraham, Abraham

    When black folks lived in slavery
    Who was it set the darkie free?
    Abraham, Abraham

    When trouble came down from the shelf
    Who's heart was bigger than himself?
    Abraham, Abraham

    The country's going to the dogs
    They shouted loud and long
    Then from a cabin made out of logs
    The right man come along

    And that is why we celebrate
    This blessed February date
    Abraham, Abraham

    The U.S.A.'s united thanks
    To one whose name was Nancy Hanks
    Abraham, Abraham

    She gave this land the finest son
    Who ever went to Washington
    Abraham, Abraham

    Someone told him General Grant
    Was drinking every night
    He answered, 'Go see if you can't
    Get all my generals tight'

    That's why we celebrate
    This blessed February date
    Abraham, Abraham

    Thank the Lord for
    Abraham
    Abraham
