Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Washington State Calypso Song
sorry..can't beat you...but I do believe the original words were the geoduck, the mountain range, the aplet and the cotlet (candies from Eastern WA) and the hydroplane. Maybe some kind of copyright problem.

all I remember..

a land devoid of the alligator, the tsetse fly the red tomato..the ...and the Irish stew whatever you don't want we don't got it too..

oh thought of more..

they built a rotunda..everybody got unda

..our founding fathers with vision clear named it after their favorite beer (Olympia..)

this is truly a very clever song.

now, that song has been going through my mind along with Rita Brown's Oregon song..I think they could be done almost overlapping.(although maybe she wouldn't like it..her song is very beautiful and the WA one is just fun...)
