DT Lyrics:

Subject: ADD Version: Delaware (Irving Gordon)
Date: 03 Apr 97 - 06:21 PM


Why did Cal-i-phone-ya? Why did Cal-i-phone?
Why did Cal-i-phone-ya? Was she all a-lone? She called to say Ha-Wai-a, She called to say Ha-wai-a,
She called to say Ha-wai-a, That's why she did phone.

What did Mis-sis-sip, boy? What did Mis-sis-sip?
What did Mis-sis-sip, Boy? Thro' her pretty lip?
She sipped a Min-ne-so-ta, She sipped a Min-ne-so-ta
She sipped a Min-ne-so-ta, That's what she did sip.

Where has Or-e-gon, boy? Where has Or-e-gon?
If you want Al-las-ka, Al-las-ka where she's gone.
She went to pay her Tex-as, She went to pay her Tex-as,
She went to pay her Tex-as, That's where she has gone.

How did Wis-con-sin, boy? She stome a New-brass-key,
Too bad that Ar-kan-saw, And so did Ten-new-see.
It made poor Flo-ra-die, boy, It made poor Flo-ra-die, You see
she died in Mis-sou-ri, boy, She died in Mis-sou-ri.

Words and Music by IRVING GORDON 1960

Since "Delaware" is NOT the song included in the thread about "If Texas told what Arkansas, what did Tennessee", what are the lyrics to "What did Delaware". She wore a brand New Jersey, that's what she did wear.

Ok, so what's next? And who is responsible for composing this little ditty that periodically pops into my head decades later? It's a great song to be passed on to sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandkids (don't have any yet), and neighbors. But we make up the lyrics cuz I don't know them!
