Wakko’s State Song Lyrics

Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana
and
Columbus is the capital 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 D.C.
Santa Fe, New Mexico and Nashville, Tennessee

(Elvis used to hang out there a lot, ya know)

Trenton's in New Jersey north of Jefferson, Missouri
You've 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 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 Wyomin' 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!
