Hurrah! Hurrah! For Cleve and Steve
by Gertie Jones
written by Gertie Jones for Grover Cleveland's failed re-election campaign in the 1888 US Presidential election.

Hurrah! hurrah! for Cleve and Steve,
Ring out the party cry,
The Democratic flag unfurl,
And proudly let it fly.

Our ranks are sometimes broken,
But divide them as you will,
The party of the people,
Will live and flourish still.

Hurrah! hurrah! for Cleve and Steve,
Ring out the party cry,
The Democratic flag unfurl,
And proudly let it fly.

See sturdy grand old Illinois
Reporting at the front,
And hand in hand with New York State,
She bears the battle's brunt

Our path will lead to vict'ry,
To purity and truth
Three cheers for Cleve and Steve
For Mistress Frank and Ruth.

Hurrah! hurrah! for Cleve and Steve,
Ring out the party cry,
The Democratic flag unfurl,
And proudly let it fly.


Tho' clouds of agitation rise,
Fear not the coming storm,
But boldly strike for Cleve and Steve,
For blue skies and reform

The sun of a new era,
beams brightly o'er the land,
And we'll stand for aye united,
The Democratic Band.

Hurrah! hurrah! for Cleve and Steve,
Ring out the party cry,
The Democratic flag unfurl,
And proudly let it fly.
