President Song: Does anyone know the rest of this?
It is not a mnemonic device, it is just a song to teach all the names of the presidents in order.

"Washington then John Adams followed by Jefferson number three,
Madison, Monroe, John Quincy Adams and Jackson Ol' Hickory,
Martin Van Buren a little obscure an' he was number eight,
William Henry Harrison died too early, or came too late . . ."
This song was taught to us at camp, oh thirty five years ago, so it must have ended way before Kennedy/Nixon. Can anyone finish it for me, or add to it? I have already tried other avenues. Much obliged.
