Presidents' Day is the fourteenth Merrie Melodies music video, the second to be sung by Lola and the first song to feature Lola without Bugs. This appears in the episode French Fries.
When the snow flurries swirl
And we're all filled with cheer,
It's time to celebrate
My favorite holiday of the year...
You know which one I'm talkin' about... Presidents' Day!
It's Presidents' Day
It's time to reflect
On those wonderful men
That we elect.
Abraham Lincoln and George Washington,
Thomas Jefferson and Alec Baldwin.
Celebrate Oscar De La Hoya
He fought off the British
So they would not annoy ya.
Raise the flag
The stars & stripes
Our 41st president
Charles Nelson Reilly won the war
With the help of his mighty vice president, Thor.
We were in trouble at the battle of Manila
But lucky for us, we had president Godzilla.
Thanks President Godzilla.
My country tis of thee
Sweet land of Mr. T and Mrs. T.
They did so much for us
Like president Spartacus
Who chopped down a forest
So we can have softer toilet paper.
Okay, this is really soft.
And now let's salute one of our greatest presidents,
Oh no, no not that one
No. No, sorry not him.
Oh, there he is!
So celebrate our fearless leaders
Like Harrison Ford and his VP, Derek Jeter.
And let's not forget President Pacino
Who fought at the Alamo with Robert De Niro.
Celebrate, everyone dancin'
For the first woman president, Scarlett Johansson
It's Presidents' Day...
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh oh oh yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhhh oh oh...
Oh my gosh, I just sounded exactly like President Christina Aguilera. That is so crazy.

- Abraham Lincoln, The 16th President
- Andrew Johnson, The 17th President
- Lyndon B. Johnson, The 36th President

- The Battle of Manila happened in 1945 during World War II, when Franklin D. Roosevelt was President.

- Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Jr.
- Scarlett Johansson, The 1st Woman President
- Christina Aguilera
- Mr. T
- Harrison Ford
- Robert De Niro, The 8th Vice-President (instead of Martin Van Buren)
- Since De Niro was Al Pacino's VP at the Alamo, that means he served instead of Martin Van Buren.

- Since Thor was Charles Nelson Reilly's VP, that means he served instead of Thomas R. Marshall.
- Derek Jeter, Harrison Ford's Vice President
Fake First Ladies

Flaws in Lola's logic
There are many reasons that several of the people could not have been President or Vice-President:
- Several of the people were not born in the United States, which is the most important requirement for Presidential eligibility.
- Spartacus was born in Greece.
- Thor Odinson was born in Norse Germany.
- Godzilla's place of birth differs depending on the continuity, though it is usually in the Pacific in areas not controlled by any government; besides which, Godzilla is not human, but a radioactive dinosaur (or a mutated plant in the 2017 anime film) who lacks citizenship in any country, instead being treated as a threat to mankind.
- There have been no female Presidents and the President must be 35 years old.
- Scarlett Johansson is 33 years old, and was 26 when the episode aired.
- Lola's patriotic superheroine outfit is similar to that of Wonder Woman.
- This is the third Merrie Melodies music video to featuring only one Looney Tunes character, if Penelope Pussycat as Pepe's photo shown in Skunk Funk doesn't necessarily count as an actual appearance.
- The animation of the celebrities are references to another show by Warner Bros. (and another Cartoon Network shows) animated series, MAD.
- In this Merrie Melody, Lola is seen wearing her normal oufit but it features the American theme and a bow on her ears and also wearing red and white stockings and cowgirl boots.
- Lola even mentions Scarlett Johansson who was parodied in the episode "Casa De Calma."
- According to this song, Lola isn't very knowledgable about American presidents.
- This is the second Merrie Melody to have people and places in both real life and in 3-D.
- Take Note: The First time was in Chicken Hawk and the next will be Chintzy.
- Lola appears in 29 different places.
- Lola mentioned Alec Baldwin, who, ironically, became well-known for portraying a mock-up version of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, during the "Saturday Night Live" sketches.
- Spartacus was a leader of Roman slave uprising during the Roman republic era, famously portrayed in the 1960 film Spartacus by Kirk Douglas.
- This music video was animated by Yearim Production. And MAD animated sequence in this song by Bunko Studio.
- To date, there has not been no female president, although Hillary Clinton was the Democratic Party's candidate in the 2016 election, and lost to Donald Trump in the biggest upset in electoral history.
- Godzilla is a Japanese icon, and is already King of the Monsters, so to be president of the United States would go against his cultural origins and his friends on Monster Island.
- Lola mentions Harrison Ford as a president. Ford played president James Marshall in the film Air Force One.
- Middle song of the Series.
