Anyone know the "State" song? Lyrics go something like: "What did Della wear? She wore a brand new jersey (Delaware and New Jersey) What did Ida hoe? I don't know I'll ask her (Idaho and Alaska)" Get it?

Why did Calla phone ya, why did Calla phone? Why did Calla phone ya, was she all alone? She phoned to say Hawaii-ya, wh phoned to say Hawaii-ya, she phoned to say Hawaii-ya, that's why she did phone./What did Missus sip, boy, what did Missus sip? ... She sipped a Minnes-soda ... That's what she did sip.

I was not aware there was a song like that, but remember learning a sort of lymiric like you described. It went: Ohio! Hawaii? If Mississippi gave Missouri her New Jersey, what would Delaware? Idaho, Alaska.
