Hear Frank Sinatra Stump for JFK in 1960 with a Revised Version of “High Hopes”

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

[Previously, at WEJB/NSU:

“Hear Frank Sinatra and a Bunch of Little Kids Sing the 1960 Academy Award-Winning Song, ‘High Hopes.’”]
 

High Hopes
Music by Jimmy van Heusen
Original words by Sammy Cahn
(Not known who wrote this version)

Everyone is voting for Jack,
‘Cause he's got what all the rest lack,
Everyone wants to back – Jack,
Jack is on the right track.

‘Cause he's got high hopes,
He’s got high hopes,
1960 is the year
For his high hopes.

Come on and vote for Kennedy,
Vote for Kennedy,
And we'll come out on top!
Oops, there goes the opposition – ker –
Oops, there goes the opposition – ker –
Oops, there goes the opposition – KERPLOP!

K—E—DOUBLE N—E—D—Y,
Jack’s the nation's favorite guy,
Everyone wants to back – Jack,
Jack is on the right track.

‘Cause he's got high hopes,
He’s got high hopes,
1960 is the year
For his high hopes.

Come on and vote
For Kennedy,
Vote for Kennedy,
Keep America strong,
Kennedy, he just keeps rollin’ – a –
Kennedy, he just keeps rollin’ – a –
Kennedy, he just keeps rollin’ along!
Vote for Kennedy!
