There is a song to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw" that names each of the 50 US states and their capitols. Does anyone know these lyrics? Thanks

Sadly, yes I do.

The song is "Wakko's America", from the Animaniacs cartoon series.

So, without any further ado...

Words: Randy Rogel
Music: Traditional (Turkey in the straw)

Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana
And Columbus is the capitol of Ohio
There's Montgomery, Alabama, south of Helena, Montana;
Then there's Denver, Colorado under Boise, Idaho

Texas has Austin, then we go north
To Massachusetts - Boston, and Albany, New York;
Tallahassee, Florida and Washington, DC,
Santa Fe, New Mexico and Nashville, Tennessee.

Elvis used to hang out there a lot, you know...

Trenton's in New Jersey, north of Jefferson, Missouri,
You got Richmond in Virginia, South Dakota has Pierre;
Harrisburg's in Pennsylvania and Augusta's up in Maine,
And here is Providence, Rhode Island, next to Dover Delaware

Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt,
To Montpelier, which is up in Vermont;
Hartford's in Connecticut, so pretty in the fall;
And Kansas has Topeka, Minnesota has St. Paul

Juneau's in Alaska, and there's Lincoln in Nebraska;
And it's Raleigh out in North Carolina and then
There's Madison, Wisconsin and Olympia up in Washington,
Phoenix, Arizona and Lansing, Michigan

Here's Honolulu, Hawaii's a joy,
Jackson, Mississippi, and Springfield, Illinois;
South Carolina with Columbia down the way
And Annapolis in Maryland on Chesapeake Bay

They have wonderful clam chowder

Cheyenne is in Wyoming and perhaps you make your home in
Salt Lake City out in Utah, where the buffalo roam
Atlanta's down in Georgia, and there's Bismarck North Dakota
And you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home

Salem in Oregon, from there we join
Little Rock in Arkansas, Iowa's got Des Moines
Sacramento, California, Oklahoma and its city,
Charleston, West Virginia, and Nevada, Carson City

That's all the capitals, there are!

(c)1993 Warner Brothers.

Hope this helps...

Thank you so much for taking the time to type all of that! I teach general music, and the 5th grade teacher asked me to correlate with Social Studies - of course there's the "50 Nifty United States" song - and I had heard this one but couldn't remember it. Thanks again!

We're really proud of you, Sean. That was quite an accomplishment. Personally, I think it's kind of a fun song - but I don't really think I'm going to memorize it... In fact, it may well be that you are the only person in the entire world who did memorize it.
But thanks for posting it. I'd heard of the song, but never actually heard or saw it. Now I'm a believer.
