The cast of the play singing
We Are the Mediocre Presidents is a song sung by Springfield Elementary School in a play.
- Seymour Skinner:
- Good evening, everyone, and welcome to a wonderful evening of theater and picking up after yourselves. (someone coughs) We begin with a tribute to our lesser-known Presidents.
- (drum roll, a bugle plays "Hail to the Chief")
- We are the mediocre Presidents.
- You won't find our faces on dollars or on cents.
- There's Taylor, there's Tyler, there's Fillmore and there's Hayes,
- There's William Henry Harrison.
- I died in thirty days!
- Adequate, forgettable,
- Occasionally regrettable
- Caretaker Presidents of the U.S.A.!
- (bugle plays "Hail to the Chief," trombone plays "Shave and a Haircut," tuba plays "Two bits")
