lyrics

Oh, how many laborers, a tell a me Luke?
Seventy two, two and two
Seventy two, two and two
Seventy, two and two

How many carry a purse, a tell a me Luke?
Zero do, two and two
Zero do, two and two
Zero carry a purse

How many carry a scrip, a tell a me Luke?
Zero do, two and two
Zero do, two and two
Zero carry a scrip

How many carrying shoes, a tell a me Luke?
Zero do, two and two
Zero do, two and two
Zero carrying shoes

Saluting by the way, a tell a me Luke?
Zero do
Zero do
None salute by the way

And, how many laborers, a tell a me Luke?
Seventy two, two and two
Seventy two, two and two
Seventy, two and two

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.
