80s Music/"Doing Homework With You" song


I'm looking for a song that was played on the radio somewhere between 1959 to 1960 that may have been entitled "Doing Homework With You".  During the song, all the Presidents up to that time, including Eisenhower (I think) were named. It was sung by a young lady who according to the song, enjoyed doing homework with her boyfriend.  That's about all I can remember about it.  Thanks for your help!

Hi Larry,

I'm not familiar with this song, but below is some information I picked up in my Internet research. I think the song is called "Learning The Presidents Song" and is included in a kids musical called Sis! Boom! Bah! composed by Ruth Roberts and Bill Katz. The problem is that the Internet also says the musical was published in 1981, which doesn't fit your memory or others on the Internet that also say it's from the 50's.  However, a link to a sample section of the song used to advertise the sheet music and text of the musical appears to follow the lyrics - including the line "doing homework with you" - and the music is in a 50's style.  Here is that link:  So, maybe the song pre-dates the musical published by Roberts and Katz.

Unfortunately, there's not much more information I could locate. Hopefully this helps.
