Subject: SONG CHALLENGE: PART MMI What did Delawa

I came up with some recycled jokes and put them to a recycled old-time country tune Goin' Around This World, Baby Mine Your job, 'Catters is to come up with suitable additional verses. Here's what I have, so let 'er rip.

What did Delaware, baby mine? What did Delaware, baby mine? What did Delaware, A New Jersey to the fair What did Delaware, baby mine?

What did Tennessee, baby mine (3X) A shiny Nebrasky What did Tennessee, baby mine

What did Idaho, baby mine? (3X) Alaska, I don't know What did Idaho, baby mine?

What does Ioway, baby mine? (3X) About a Washing-ton, I'd say What does Ioway, baby mine?

Hawaii today, baby mine? (3X) Been in Missouri all day Hawaii today, baby mine?

Jim

As a child, I heard this as

Of what did Flora-Die boys? (2x) She died of Missouri.

Just thought of (maybe remembered)...

Where has Ora-gone boys? (2x) Gone to Okla-home.

Thanks for reminding me of an old favorite.

I tried to think of the Where has Ore-gon boys verse, and couldn't think of the come-back. She's gone to Oklahom. Of course! Thanks. Any more verses? PS I may sing a few of these at the Songwriter's Circle in Kansas City tonight.

Perry Como had a big hit with "Delaware" in the 50's. verses included:

What did Delaware, boys? She wore a brand New Jersey.

Why did Cala phone ya? She phoned to say Hawaya.

How did Wiscon sin, boys? She stole a New Brass Key. Too bad that Arkan saw, boys, So did Tenna see.

Where has Ora gone boys? She went to pay her Texas.

What did Missy sip, boys? She sipped a Minne soda.

How did Flora die, boys? She died in Missouri.

Probably a few more, too

THAT was a rhetorical question THANK YOU.
