lyrics

Eleanor Roosevelt was a wonderful lady
She knew all the people's names
She took into account all the people who couldn't get out
And couldn't have all they needed
Nevertheless, her husband confessed
He totally messed up again
He couldn't make it up, he couldn't make it up
The monster died in a painter's chair

Ellie wept and Anna cried
Ellie wept and Anna cried
Ellie wept and Anna cried
Ellie wept and Anna cried

Eleanor Roosevelt was a powerful speaker
She told us what she knew
Always just a few steps ahead
And ever pushing through
But then, 1960, an illness attacked
Her health went on the decline
I'm sorry, so sorry, for everything, Anna
November 7th, 1962

Ellie's dead and Anna died
Ellie's dead and Anna died
Ellie's dead and Anna died
Ellie's dead and Anna died
