about

Maxel Toft Chicago, Illinois

The President Series (aka The Reverse Pregnancy Series) is a Maxel Toft project that began in 1999.
Each album represents both a U.S. President and a week of human pregnancy from birth to conception.
Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.

Track Name: Change
I got the 'lectric credit or debit blues
I got the 'lectric credit or debit blues
Electric credit or debit blues

Everybody's payin' with the credit or the debit
And nobody's walkin' jinglin' change in their pocket
But I'm still singin' and I won't give up
Sittin' on a milk crate shakin' this cup

I got the 'lectric credit or debit blues
I got the 'lectric credit or debit blues
Electric credit or debit blues

Nobody's walkin' jinglin' change in their pocket
'Cause everybody's payin' with the credit or the debit
But I'm still sittin' and I won't get up
Singin' and a spittin' and a shakin' this cup
Track Name: Colic
Don't you ever shake and shake and
Don't you shake your baby
Don't you ever shake and shake no
Don't you shake that babe

The baby is crying and you can't get relief
It's been such a spell that you're too tired to sleep
You'd probably sell your kingdom for a single night of peace
But don't you shake your baby

There's nothing on the internet that you haven't tried
The skin time and the swaddle and the stomach and the side
The shushing and the swinging and the sucking till you die
But don't you shake that babe

Don't you ever shake and shake and . . .

If you're feeling angry then you've got to get away
And sing a silly song out loud till everything's okay
And dance a silly dance around or go outside and play
But don't you shake your baby

You've got to shut the door and put in some plugs
It's probably best to limit any alcohol and drugs
So grab your closest partner and receive a decent hug
But don't you shake that babe

Don't you ever shake and shake and . . .

Track Name: Potholes
We were on a Sunday drive
In the city
In the spring
We hit a pothole . . . Bloop!
Hit a pothole . . . Bloop!
We were on a Sunday drive
In the city
In the spring
Bloop!
Almost lost my tooth

We were on a Sunday drive

In the spring
We hit a pothole . . . Blum!
Hit a pothole . . . Blum!
We were on a Sunday drive
In the city
In the spring
Blum!
Almost bit my tongue

We were on a Sunday drive
In the city
In the spring
We hit a pothole . . . Bloop!
Hit a pothole . . . Bloop!
Hit a pothole . . . Blum!
Hit a pothole . . . Blum!
We missed a pothole . . . Whoop
Missed a pothole . . . Whoop
Still almost lost my tooth

What's your mother's maiden name?

Track Name: Ringtone
I was in a class
They were teaching me some math
I'm gonna barely pass
And I feel a little buzz . . .
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle-ding

I was at a church
They were preaching me the Word
A for my soul to search
And I feel a little buzz . . .
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle-ding

Diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Diddle-doddle-ding

I was at a show
Where I let trouble corrode
Pretending I don't know
When I feel a little buzz . . .
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle-ding

I was in a stall
Where I get all problems solved
A answerin' nature's call
When I feel a little buzz . . .
And it sang . . .
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Ding-a-doddle-diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle-ding

Diddle-doddle, diddle-doddle
Diddle-doddle-ding
Track Name: Whats for dinner?
I'm out of this

Don't
Hey Cholly
Please, please don't burn the audience, Cholly
Please don't burn the audience
Please, please don't burn the audience, Cholly
Please don't burn the audience

Don't call the cops
An, never call the cops

Please no burning

Hey Cholly, no cooking, that's cool
Your show's cool but no cooking
Hey Cholly, no cooking, that's cool
Your show's cool but no cooking

Don't call the cops
An, never call the cops

Please no burning

Please no burning
Track Name: Riffles and Currents
We're in the same boat brother and sister but we aren't necessarily rowing in the same direction.
I'll come paddle on your side and you come paddle on my side every little once and a while.
We aren't getting anywhere but we can still have a good time talking about going nowhere and dreaming about going somewhere.
Together.
