Congratulations, Tom Dewey Congratulations, Tom Dewey You won in a landslide today; We knew you would win Through thick and through thin 'Cause no one would vote To let Truman stay in; Congratulations, Tom Dewey Your Republican dreams will come true Here's a victory roar For President thirty-four The White House is waiting for you! note: Based on a host of polls and media predictions of a Dewey landslide in the 1948 Presidential campaign, the Chicago Tribune printed an early morning edition that bore the headline proclaiming a huge Republican victory. Celebratory songs, like this one, were poised on the nations bandstands. Truman, and the electorate, failed to cooperate. RG AT apr96
