I learned this song in 5th grade and still remember it -
It's the only reason I know all the states in alphabetical order!
Fifty nifty united states from the thirteen original colonies
Fifty nifty stars in the flag that billow so beautifully in the breeze
Each individual state contributes a quality that is great
Each individual state deserves a bow. Let's salute them now...
Fifty nifty united states from the thirteen original colonies,
Shout 'em, scout 'em, tell all about 'em
One by one till you've given a name to every state in the USA...
North, South, East, West
In our cool, considered, objective, unprejudiced opinion,
New Jersey is the best
Of the fifty nifty United States from the thirteen original colonies
Then the first verse repeats - I don't remember exactly how it ends)
If you want to email me, I'll send you a tape of the tune.
