Numbers to Words

I want a plain text file listing the English words for number 1-100 (ideally, one per line any delimiter will be fine, I can fix that). One, Two, ..., One Hundred. It's got to be somewhere on this great internet. Can AskMe find it fast?

(Asking because if this is more of a programming thing and you hadn't thought of it, there are libraries or functions that can do number ↔ words conversion as a procedure versus this essentially brute-force method, and it might be a better idea.)

Response by poster: Thanks; I'm aware of libraries that do this but I needed it fast on a computer where I can't install things like that.

Okay, it's not a list, and since you specified fast I guess you're almost certainly done with what you needed to do, but it's an alternate take on the problem:
